It is time for you to pay a visit to the Musée du quai Branly, especially if you are visiting Paris and are interested to know more about the art, cultures and civilizations from the Americas, Oceania, Asia, and Africa.

Since this museum is located close to the Eiffel Tower, you can chalk out a plan to view them both in a single day. However, it is debatable whether you can complete viewing the entire museum, which spans several buildings, in just a single day. The famous architect, Jean Nouvel, undertook the design of this building.

Tourists who are on the lookout for collections from the defunct Musée national des Arts d’Afrique et d’Océanie can find them in the Musée du quai Branly. Do not miss out the 200 meters long and 12 meters tall `living wall.’ Even though this wall was vibrant and healthy during the time of its installation, it has deteriorated over the years due to lack of proper drainage and irrigation.

Though this museum has over 267,000 objects in their permanent collection, only 3,500 are presently on display. However, the displays are changed every now and then. It is because of this that you will find something new every time you visit this museum.
