Description

For the first time, from 30 January 2018 to 6 January 2019, the Musée du Quai Branly – Jacques Chirac is devoting a temporary exhibition to its collection of paintings. ‘Paintings from afar’ presents nearly 200 canvases and graphic works of the 500 pieces in the museum’s collection. These largely unknown works, from the end of the 18th century to the middle of the 20th century, tell the story of the evolution of the West's artistic outlook on distant peoples and territories.

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.
