Objective musée du quai Branly

The guide for family visits

Follow the guide...

Welcome to the musée du quai Branly, one of the biggest museums of the world entirely dedicated to non-Western cultures and arts.

How can you find your way among the 3 500 exhibited works? Which itinerary is best to choose when accompanied by children? Which continents should be approached?

In order to answer these questions, this guide – extensively illustrated with photographs and original drawings – offers young and older visitors a choice of seven fun-filled, geographical and cross-cultural itineraries. Depending on their expectations, their mood or the time they have, several options exist. They can discover the works continent by continent by following the itinerary suggested by the museum; they can opt for an initiation voyage to the country of masks or a forest itinerary in quest of materials; they can also be enchanted by reading the myths and legends that underpin these traditional societies.

Clear, practical and didactic in nature, Objectif musée du quai Branly is a fascinating trip around the world to encounter the Other!
