T+L Reports: Musée du Quai Branly

Rising in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower, Jean Nouvel's sweeping Musée du Quai Branly (222 Rue de l'Université; 33-1/56-61-70-00; www.quaibranly.fr)—devoted to the art of Africa, Asia, the Americas, and the South Pacific—opens this month. An exterior wall is covered in 150 exotic plant species, but the real eclecticism is inside, where ancient Olmec statuettes, Tuareg leatherwork, and aboriginal bark paintings are on display.
