Musée du Quai Branly

Fascinating day exploring the ethnographic collections at the Musée du Quai Branly, Paris.

ImageThe museum holds a fantastic collection of indigenous art from Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas. It has a total of over a quarter of a million objects, of which about 3,500 are on display at any one time. I was particularly impressed with the Oceanic collection with fetish figures and masks from Micronesia, Papua New Guinea and Australasia.
