Visiting Quai Branly Museum
Musée du Quai Branly in Paris’ 7th Arrondissement photographed from the second level of the Eiffel Tower by King of Hearts. Most of Paris’ other attractions are around to the right, out of picture, though still easily walkable.
The Musée du quai Branly specialises in indigenous art from outside Europe and hosts a vast collection of which 3, 500 are on display at one time.
Branly, spnsored by President Jaques Chirac, opened in 2006, the newest major museum in Paris. It’s on the left bank of the Seine beside the Eiffel Tower and Pont de l’Alma. The nearest métro and RER stations are Alma – Marceau and Pont de l’Alma.
Designed by Jean Nouvel, the museum architecture itself is remarkable.
