Musee du Quai-Branly: Branly Museum
Built around its extensive collection of indigenous art and cultural relics from civilizations in Africa, Asia Oceania and the Americas, Musée du Quai-Branly also has an important research library.
The work of Australian aboriginal artists is an especially popular attraction. As part of Photoquai 2011, the Australian Embassy in Paris, in association with Magnum Photos and Stills Gallery, is presenting the exhibitions Minutes to Midnight and Coming Soon, both by Trent Parke, and Between Worlds by Polixeni Papapetrou. This exhibition runs until January 13, 2012.
Located at a curve in the scenic Seine, the museum is an easy walk from the Eiffel Tower.
