Fodor's Review

Dedicated to the art of Africa and the African diaspora, the Dapper Museum showcases an ever-changing selection of impressive temporary exhibitions, ranging from elaborate masks, traditional sculptures, and ceremonial jewelry to contemporary African designs. Opened in 1986 as a museum and cultural space by Christiane Falgayrettes-Leveau (a native of French Guyana) and her husband, Michel Leveau, the museum relocated to its current modern-design building in 2000. A visit to the Dapper makes a good pairing with a stop at the nearby Musée Guimet. Most of the visitor information is in French, but the website usually has English descriptions of current exhibitions.
