The latest addition to the long list of great museums in Paris, le Musée du Quai Branly opened its doors in 2006. A brand new modern building, designed by Jean Nouvel, the architect who created l'Institut du Monde Arabe, was built for the purpose. Critics found it offensively modern, while others admired the building's ability to complement its Belle Epoque surroundings, particularly its glass façade and the vertical garden covering the rest of its façade. The museum is dedicated to non-western arts with items that made it to France over the past 500 years.
