The Husband and I headed over to the Musée du Quai Branley yesterday to get some homework done for one of my classes. (sidenote: A major advantage to going to grad school in Paris? Museums as homework. What’s not to love?) If you’ve never been to the Musée I highly recommend it — it has a totally different feel than any other museum in Paris that I’ve been too. Rather than being full of master pieces, this is a cultural museum that instead showcases pieces of cultural significance. Seriously cool, not to mention the beautiful grounds. I’m lucky enough to work and go to school right down the street, so I can tell you first hand how beautiful the gardens are when in bloom — not to mention the gardens that literally grow up the walls of the museum. Honestly, it’s worth checking out just for the grounds and awesome location, not to mention all the cool stuff inside!
FYI- this is where I get off to go to school. It was such a beautiful day we didn’t mind the 15 minute walk from the Métro to the Musée!
Conveniently located right next to another cool attraction…
The one disappointment of the day? The resident crystal skull was off exhibit for testing. Not gonna lie, the first thing The Husband did when we arrived was find an employee and ask where the skull was… I think he’s the only person ever who loved Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull. Needless to say we’ll be going back once they’re done with testing and the skull is back out!
