Museum of African & Oceania Art
Located near the Bois de Vincennes, the Musee des Arts africains et oceaniens mostly displays works from colonial countries. The building was constructed during the colonial exhibition of 1931. Its architecture is in perfect harmony with the theme of the objects exhibited. Visitors are invited to walk through a tropical garden full of crocodiles and exotic fish – ideal for children as long as they are not crazy enough to swim there! For adults, the rooms dedicated to aboriginal art, works from the Pacific islands and objects from New Caledonia are worth the detour. The African statues and masks are just magnificent: don't miss the sculptures from Nigeria, Cameroon, the Congo and Angola nor the fascinating jewelry from North Africa.
