The Musee du Quai Branly makes for a fascinating day out for tourists who are looking for things to do in Paris.
This fascinating museum is dedicated to the African, Asian, Oceania and American arts and civilisations, and hosts a number of permanent and temporary exhibitions, as well as putting on some must-see events.
One such exhibition currently showing is The Seduction of the Palate, which is being presented in partnership with the National Museum of China.
It looks at the ways of cooking and eating in China that have persevered for seven thousand years, explaining that consuming food in China is not simply a daily activity.
Visitors to the museum will explore tableware throughout the ages as a part of this, as the exhibition explains how Neolithic pottery tableware soon metamorphosed into bronze during the 2nd and 1st millennia BC, before being converted into lacquerware and then into gold and silver tableware in royal palaces. Finally, porcelain triumphed between 960 and 1278 AD.
