Description

The Musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac opens its doors to festival-goers on the occasion of Siestes électroniques, a free and relaxing outdoor music event... Inspired by the ethnomusicological collections of the Museum, invited artists renew their creativity and offer the public  a repertoire that is out of the ordinary.  A poetic and surprising challenge that has been taken up this year by Frànçois & the Atlas Mountain, Para One, and Animalsons.

Musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac

Located on the banks of the Seine, near the Eiffel Tower, the Musée du Quai Branly - Jacques Chirac exhibits 3,500 works of art from Africa, the Americas, Asia and Australasia. This important collection makes it a key place for arts for non-Western cultures.
Its original and imposing architecture was designed by Jean Nouvel, and its garden makes it a wild and pleasant place.
Extend your visit with a meal at the Les Ombres restaurant with its panoramic view, or with a snack at Café Branly.
More than a museum, this is a living place, and is one of Paris's four largest museums.
