Maria Hagan

4/5
Reviewed on 12 May 2015

This museum is devoted to showcasing ethnic art from Africa, the Americas, Oceania and Asia. It's the place to come to revel in rare Ethiopian frescoes, impressive Gabonese masks, Aztec statues and much more. The building, right by the banks of the Seine and designed by Jean Nouvel is impressive and surrounded with greenery. Exhibitions change frequently and touch on historic and contemporary cultures. Recent exhibitions include one on Australian aboriginal art, one about hair culture, and another about the development of tattoo art around the world. Displays are consistently engaging and feature research of the highest quality. If you're interested in learning more about world culture then you don't want to miss out on this one.
