Good morning everyone,
Today, I’m sharing a cultural post. As some of you may know, I spent last week in Paris and took advantage of the fact that I was in the capital to visit some museums. The really amazing thing about Paris is that if you’re a European citizen under 26, most of the time you get a free entrance to museums, even very big ones like the Louvre, which I already talked about here for the Egyptian department and here for the rest.
I went to the Quai Branly Jacques Chirac museum because I had heard so much about it, so I was curious to check it out. In addition, it is a very original museum because it does not look like the French Louvre, the British National Gallery or the American MoMA. Indeed, it features the indigenous art and cultures of non European art : it displays masks, costumes, totem poles and other artifacts from around the world that are mostly linked to religious sacred beliefs.
