Permanent Exhibition Area
A continuous geographical journey around 3500 artefacts from all four corners of the world.
Designed by the architect, Jean Nouvel, the Museum permanently displays 3500 works over a surface area of 5300 m². It also dedicates 3500 m² to temporary exhibitions. The hiring of our spaces may be accompanied by a visit - private or public - of the Collections and/or Temporary Exhibitions Spaces.
The Collections Space is a unique and open space that presents 3500 works displayed according to four geographic areas: Oceania, Asia, Africa and the Americas.
The museography plunges the works into a dark, poetic, emotional and disorientating environment that breaks with traditional museoligical practices. The focus is on the historic depth of the cultures that are represented and the diverse meanings of the works on display.
