Musée du quai Branly

Yesterday, we went to check out the Musée du quai Branly, as it was one of the museums that I have been keen to see.

I think what we loved the most is the beautiful green wall and the gardens leading into the museum. We also liked the fact there was no queue!

Here are some pics:

I also photographed some of my favorite pieces from the collection.

Something I found fascinating is finding out that shadow puppets are also part of Arabic and Turkish cultures, which surprised me as I was only familiar with the Wayang puppets from Indonesia.
