Paris Travel Planner   International Culture Museums, Paris
Paris is an international city and its museums reflect this.




For centuries Paris has been an international center of culture, and today many museums reflect this internationalism.

The Musée Guimet is home to a wonderful collection of Asian Art, ranging from India to Japan. It reopened to the public in 2001, following extensive renovations, and is a real gem. More...

Just across the Seine, about a 10 minute walk from the Musée Guimet and in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, is the Musée du Quai Branly. One of Paris's newest museums (opened in 2006), the Quai Branly has a stunning collection of art and artifacts from Oceania, Asia, Africa, and the Americas. More...

You'll find a specific focus at the Institut du Monde Arabe, a partnership of 22 Arab countries and France. Located near the lovely Jardin des Plantes on the Left Bank, the Institut presents a range of permanent and temporary exhibits based on the Arab world. More...

Musée de Judaïsme

If you're interested in Judaism and the development of Jewish communities from the Middle Ages to the present, visit the interesting Musée d'Art et d'Histoire du Judaïsme in the Marais. More...

The Musée de l'Homme, in the Palais de Chaillot, is closed for renovations until 2015. Traditionally focused on anthropology and ethnography, much of its collection was transferred to the Quai Branly Museum in 2006. A branch of the National Museum of Natural History, the Musée de l'Homme is redefining it focus and will contribute to our understanding of prehistory and physical anthropology.

Naturally, many of the other museums of Paris feature international art and artists, but the ones highlighted above may be of particular interest if you're wanting to explore international cultures.
