Albert Kahn Museum and Garden
A walk around the world
Albert Kahn Garden and Museum
ATTENTION: The park is currently under renovation. It is expected to reopen in the first week of April 2022.
The Albert-Kahn Museum and Botanical Garden is a cultural and natural space located about 30 minutes from the center of Paris.
Albert-Kahn was a 19th century French businessman who loved to travel and see diverse peoples. He amassed a collection of 72,000 photographs and 180,000 meters of silent films taken in many corners of the world between 1909 and 1931.
These are the pieces of the “Archives du Planète”, you can see them in the museum, called in French Musée départemental Albert-Kahn.
World map garden
Around the museum is the “World Map Garden”. So called because it gathers in its interior the representation of landscapes and vegetation from different parts of the world.
In this garden you have the sensation of traveling between continents within its four hectares.
Possibly this coexistence of species originating from different parts of the world responds to Kahn’s conception of the importance of cooperation and understanding of nations.
What to see in the Albert Kahn Garden
The picturesque Albert Kahn Garden is composed of:
- Two Japanese gardens
- A French garden
- An English garden
- Different forests
- A swamp
The Japanese garden takes us directly to the oriental country. You will be able to walk through stones, water and traditional Japanese bridges, and become infected with peace. The Japanese who visit the garden testify to the success and correctness of its design.
We also find the European garden style, such as French or English. Shrubs, trees, streams and a pond accompany the tour.
In the woods we can observe cedars and pines, and walking among their trunks and branches we can find the swamp.
