When technology serves primitive art and civilizations, it enables us to take our discovery and knowledge of them even further.
NFC/RFID mobile application
You will be able to get a sneak preview and test out the Musée du quai Branly application with smartphones that can be borrowed from the Museum. Sponsored by Orange, this application benefits from NFC/RFID technology, enabling you to access multimedia content and go behind the scenes to discover the stocks of musical instruments and around 15 instruments during your visit.
It is very easy to use! Wherever you see the NFC logo, scan it with your smartphone and your mobile screen will automatically display the content available on the item being exhibited. Magic! You will be able to get videos, photos and especially audio features, as we are talking about instruments here. Equipped with an audio headset, you will be immersed in a new audio experience, enabling you to feel the instrument, its vibrations and tones, and find out more about its history.
Fun and informative, this application also gives you access to interactive games.
This is the first NFC application developed for a permanent exhibition and will be rolled out widely for the end of the summer following this test phase, during which your impressions and comments are more than welcome! In this way, you can be involved in the creation of a new way of experiencing the museum.
MU collective audio pathway
Opposite the ticket office, don’t miss Pangée, an audio experience offered by the MU collective.
Thanks to an audio headset, equipped with an RFID tracker and bag with a Wi-Fi terminal, you are being invited to walk around the Museum’s natural gardens and let yourself be carried away by the sounds accompanying your journey. Thanks to the technology you carry with you, music from the Museum’s media library recordings is played in your headset, opening up an audio world while you make your way around the pathway.
Poetic, surprising and innovative, this experience allows you to discover new sensations in contact with nature.

These innovations give us some insight into what the museums of tomorrow will be like: interactive and multimedia living areas, awakening all the senses. Don’t miss the opportunity to take part.
