Private museum but a hidden gem for anyone interested in African art and culture. Incredible sculptures and masks with some dating back nearly 1000 years. Beautifully curated with nice lighting and interpretation and a lovely gift shop also. Definitely worth seeking out.

This small museum organized a beautiful exhibition from their own collection which spanned "African" art from various cultures on the Continent. It is worth a visit.

A small museum, but immense in the pleasure of your eyes and emotions. Not overly crowded and sometimes it as if the masks and different artifacts come to life. A wonderful experience and museum.

There are more than 150 museums in Paris and its surrounding region, the majority of which most tourists never see.** The Dapper Museum unrightfully falls into that category. The Dapper is a small museum devoted to the art of Africa, the Caribbean, and their diaspora....More

This small gem of a museum holds a really diverse collection of West African and Caribbean artifacts. A completely different selection than on display at the Branly, and it doesn't take all day to wander through. If you are a lover of African art, this...More
