Accessible Musée du Quai Branly Jacques Chirac in Paris
The Musée du Quai Branly in Paris is CLOSED on Mondays.
Experience a different view of the Eiffel Tower from the Musée du Quai Branly Jacques Chirac.
And without the hectic crowds of Paris visitors too.
The Musée du Quai Branly Jacques Chirac, is located right next to the Eiffel Tower in central Paris, and is home to a very diverse collection of indigenous art from Africa, Asia, Oceania, and the Americas.
Seriously, you could spend a whole day in here – allow for a good two hours at the very minimum if you intend to visit the wheelchair accessible café in the gardens too.
All of the spaces at the Musée du Quai Branly – Jacques Chirac are wheelchair accessible. Including all activities, performances and events.
And wheelchair accessible lifts will take you between levels where needed.
Dedicated places are also reserved for wheelchairs in the cinema, the Claude Lévi-Strauss Theatre and in the open-air theatre too.
Getting to the Musée du Quai Branly Jacques Chirac in Paris using Public Transport
The Musée du Quai Branly Jacques Chirac is located just next to the Eiffel Tower in central Paris, so this information can be used to get to the Eiffel Tower too.
The most obvious way of getting to the Musée du Quai Branly Jacques Chirac by Metro (or RER) are either to get off at “Champ de Mars Tour Eiffel” (RER C – yellow line), or to get off at “Bir-Hakeim” (Metro line 6). Neither station is wheelchair accessible though.
So you’ll have to get there by bus or wheelchair accessible taxi.
A number of Paris bus lines serve the Musée du Quai Branly Jacques Chirac area (or pass nearby).
See the official RATP Bus Map for details.
And all 4,500 buses in Paris have an automatic/retractable wheelchair ramp (controlled by the bus driver).
The most suitable buses are:
Bus lines 30 and 82. Both of these buses stop at “Eiffel Tower” bus stop – from where it is just a few minutes to roll to the Musée du Quai Branly Jacques Chirac;
Line 42: The bus stop is on Av. de la Bourdonnais. However DO NOT get off this bus at this bus line’s “Tour Eiffel” bus stop (it’s actually a different bus stop to the one mentioned before – it just has the same name – and it’s not wheelchair accessible). But simply get off at the next bus stop on the same street (the name of this bus stop is “Monttessuy”).
The “Monttessuy” bus stop is accessible.
Wheelchair Accessible Taxis in Paris?
They have a dedicated telephone number for their “G7 Access” service in Paris: +33(0)1 47 39 00 91. Your Paris hotel reception should be only too happy to call them from your hotel – or you can order a taxi on their website (at www.g7.fr), or via their free app.
My recommendation though?
The Musée du Quai Branly Jacques Chirac/Eiffel Tower is just one stop on the Paris DIY Walking Tour route (which also includes the Arc de Triomphe, Place du Trocadéro, Palais de Chaillot, the Eiffel Tower, École Militaire, Les Invalides, Musée Rodin, Pont Alexandre III, Grand Palais, Petit Palais, Jardin des Champs-Élysées, Place de la Concorde, Jardin des Tuileries, Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, the Louvre Museum and ending on the Pont des Arts (at sunset?).
As this walk includes most of the “must see” Paris attractions, it’s rather a long walk (just over 8km – about 5 miles). So you may want to do it in two stages? Breaking your journey at the Musée Rodin would be my best recommendation (as there’s a wonderful outdoor café there, to enjoy at the end of the first stage of the walk when split – and the garden in the Musée Rodin is so peaceful that you will find it hard to believe that you’re still actually in the centre of Paris).
