Address: 37 Quai Branly, 75007 Paris
This Wednesday, I was walking around Paris, somewhat aimlessly, somewhat purposefully. After going to the American Library in Paris, I ventured down a street that brought me to the Musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac. It was a museum I had heard about ever so vaguely, but I decided to visit since I was there and had a free schedule!
Located in the 7th arrondissement of Paris on the left bank of the Seine, the museum quai Branly - Jacques Chirac features a global collection of tribal artefacts, from indigenous cultures of Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas. It has a collection of 450,000 objects, which 3,500 are on display at a time.
But it's not just the museum that was noteworthy: there's a beautiful garden in which you can sit and relax in, just to take a little breather on a hot day, or even have a little 4 o'clock picnic, like I did.
