Preparing for the visit

The “Adventurers of the musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac”, is for you! Get ready to leave with the family to discover the diversity of cultures, to explore astonishing sites, to experience moments of sharing between parents and children… The museum sets up everything to make your journey easier!

An adventure passport for children

The musée du quai Branly - Jacques Chirac accompanies each child in his adventure, by offering a passport (available at the museum reception). Have it stamped at the reception each time you come: when you have three stamps, the whole family wins!

  • Children receive a gift to start making their adventurer’s kit.
  • Parents win a discount on the Twin Pass+ to extend their exploration of the museum for a whole year (direct access without queuing and unlimited access for 2 adults and accompanying children under 18 years; discounts for family activities…).
