Musee du Quai Branly was unable to participate last year in the Free Museum Night because it hadn’t opened yet, but this year it will make up for lost time by keeping its doors open for an extra half hour. Visitors will be allowed free entrance after 6 pm. Jugglers, acrobats and contortionists will be on hand to add some animation to the already dramatic sculpture exhibits. Don’t miss the trapeze act in the garden.
Musee du Quai Branly opened last June, 2006. The museum was the dreamchild of Jacques Chirac, France’s former president who handed over the duties to newly elected president Nicolas Sarkozy.
