Arc de Triomphe -
Along with the Eiffel Tower, the Arc de Triomphe is one of the most famous monuments in Paris. It stands in the centre of the Place Charles de Gaulle, at the western end of the Champs-Élysées and was commissioned by Napoleon in 1806 in homage to French military victories. As such the Arc is adorned with reliefs and sculptures depicting scenes of Napoleon's epic battles.
The Big Hall within the monument offers visitors the chance to trace the history of the Arc de Triomphe through modern, interactive displays, while the 50 metre high terrace on top of the Arc de Triomphe places Paris – quite literally - at your feet. Admire the Champs-Elysees, the place de la Concorde, the Tuilerie Garden and the Louvre before paying your respects to the tomb of The Unkown Soldier, interred here on Armistice Day 1920.
Musée du Quai Branly -
The Musée du Quai Branly (or MQB) is known in English as the ‘Quai Branly Museum' – and features stunning indigenous art and cultural artefacts from Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas. This modern museum is located close to the Eiffel Tower on the banks of the Seine and is named after the revered physicist, Édouard Branly.
The museum complex itself contains several buildings, as well as a multimedia library and a tranquil garden. Visitors can peruse collections from the now-closed Musée National des Arts d'Afrique et d'Océanie and the ethnographic department of the Musée de l'Homme. The MQB boasts 267,000 objects in its permanent collection, around 3,500 of which are on display - making this the perfect place in which to spend a leisurely morning or rainy Paris afternoon.
