Cheap hotels near Quai Branly Museum in Paris, France
If you’re strolling along the banks of the Seine in Paris’ 7th arrondissement and come across a 40 foot high, 650 foot long wall completely covered in vegetation, you may have (or, well, definitely have) stumbled upon the Musée du Quai Branly. One of Paris’ newest museums (it opened in 2006), the Quai Branly houses collections of primitive and indigenous art and artifacts from outside of Europe.
The building, designed by famed architect Jean Nouvel, is one of the more distinct modern buildings in Paris, not least because of its striking "green wall." While it isn’t quite yet the tourist draw of some other Parisian museums, the Quai Branly is nonetheless a popular destination, especially with locals. Its proximity to other sights such as the Eiffel Tower and Hôtel des Invalides makes it an interesting stop — even just to check out the exterior.
Cheap hotels near the Quai Branly Museum: Though its neighborhood is a bit sleepy, the proximity of the museum to the Eiffel Tower means that there is a good selection of budget hotels in the vicinity — most of them tower-themed.
