Here’s a real cultural jewel. Learn about the immigrants who helped build France over the past two centuries at this fascinating multicultural museum. Discover a large collection of photographs, documents and video that trace the history, culture and contributions of the many ethnic groups that make up France today.

The museum is located in an exquisite Art Deco building, the Palais de la Porte d’Orée, built in 1931 for the International Colonial Exhibition in Paris. INSPIRELLE recommends this museum for adults and older children, but younger kids can fully enjoy the tropical aquarium on the lower level.
