For a day, visitors can discover what happens backstage Musée du Quai Branly – Jacques Chirac through an original tour presenting – among others – many multimedia materials.
The occasion of course to remember the most beautiful pieces bought by the museum in 20 years and rediscover the whole diversity of the museum’s collections. In other words, an exhibition starting this Fall you really don’t want to miss!
