Inaugurated in 2006 by President Jacques Chirac, the Quai Branly Museum, designed by the architect Jean Nouvel, is an exceptional site dedicated to non-Western cultures and arts. Set within a garden designed by the landscape architect Gilles Clément, not far from the Eiffel Tower in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, this modern building has an impressive vertical garden and offers no less than 5,300 m² of space for permanent exhibitions on the arts and civilisations of Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas. In an intimate setting bathed in soft light are nearly 3,500 objects from all over the world, all wonderfully showcased, ranging from textiles to masks, through sculptures, musical instruments, jewellery and totems. The two mezzanines overlooking the collection area regularly host temporary exhibitions.
