37 Quai Branly, Paris, 75007, France

Just 100 meters from the Eiffel Tower, the Quai Branly Museum draws crowds to its treasure trove of ethnic art. Opened in 2006, the Jean Nouvel-designed complex contains four buildings, with the main one sitting on stilts and adorned with a protruding jumble of 30 colorful cubes. Abundant plant life thrives not only on-site, but on the building itself. Bamboo replaces louvered windows and vegetation fully covers exterior walls with 15,000 plants from 150 different species. A large Native American totem pole anchors the vast interior atrium, which gives way to a myriad of 5,450 displayed pieces of primitive art from Africa, Oceania, Asia, and the Americas.
