20 Years of Collection Enrichment
Now on - Jan 26, 2020

In this bold exhibition, the Musée du quai Branly asks a very self-reflective question: What is the essence of a museum?

This prompted an exploration of the contents of a museum; how and why do institutions acquire art offerings from around the world? What roadmap is followed when displaying art objects from diverse regions and cultures together?

500 works have been gathered with the help of a dozen curators and academics in an attempt to answer these questions. You're invited to unravel the processes of the museum's own acquisition policy for the first time, and witness how a museum is constructed, one priceless object at a time.

  • Available with the Temporary Exhibition Ticket and the Combined Ticket.

Description

In the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, the Musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac is full of masks, musical instruments, weapons, ceremonial artifacts, paintings, tapestries and more. Outside the building is quite a sight to behold. Inside, discover art and artifacts from civilizations around the world.

From Vancouver to Vanuatu and Uluru to Uganda, the collection here brilliantly illustrates the richness of global cultural diversity. Foregoing the more well-known and studied European civilizations, the permanent collection at Musée du quai Branly spans Oceania, Asia, Africa and the America, and stretches all the way back to the Neolithic period.

Outside, the exterior of Musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac features a vertical garden, enormous multicolored blocks, and a series of towers that look like the inside of a radiator. Step inside to find thousands of art and artifacts that will transport you around the globe.

Peculiar architecture and astonishing anthropological artifacts, the Musée du quai Branly – Jacques Chirac is a haven for curious minds.

As French President Jacques Chirac said at the dedication: "May the visitors who pass through the doors of the Musée du quai Branly be filled with emotion and wonderment."

The café in the gardens is a great spot to view the Eiffel Tower in relative peace. And the restaurant on the terrace of the museum is a special spot for a memorable night out in Paris.
