This museum which was recently given many of the artists' works by the Louvre offers the visitor a glimpse into the life of this interesting artist. There is no entrance fee if you have the Museum Pass or if you have a ticket to the Louvre but you might want to check on this. It is located in a area... More

This past Sunday (the first Sunday of the month in Paris) most museums were free in Paris. We had been advised to avoid the larger museums on this day because of overcrowding (by the amazing Paul of Wego Walking Tours). So we settled on this small and hidden museum which had once been the home of Eugene Delacroix. When I... More

I have always enjoyed seeing Delacroix' works. This museum adds to an understanding of the artist, his background and interests in German and English literature. The apartment is well hidden. You get to explore portions of the Left Bank close to the Seine. And you get to see what true admirers of an individual can do. It is remarkable. If... More

This is a very small museum in the apartment and studio of Delacroix. The art and objects are perfect for reminding you how much you love his works. The perfect addition is the lovely little garden which Delacroix designed (as he did his studio). The garden was restored to his plans by the gardeners of the Tuileries.

This small museum is hidden away behind gates in a courtyard in the corner. It took me ages to find it! The best thing about this museum is the studio and garden. Entry is included with the entry to the Louvre.

I was about to write that this is only worthwhile if you have a museum pass, but then I looked at the brochure again and it says that your Lourve ticket will get you in, and you can get your Lourve ticket here (presumably allowing you to skip the queue at the Lourve!). The museum itself is not very interesting,... More

Charmingly located in an area of interesting built form, with entry through a masonry arch into the courtyard of private apartments. I visited on a rainy day. Entry was free because it was the first Sunday of the month and all museum entry is free on that day. I chose this small museum (actually called Musée Eugène-Delacroix, if you are... More

A lovely museum and gallery dedicated to the works of Delacroix. This is the best way to see his works in a small setting that isn't packed like a lot of the really touristy places! Your ticket from here also gains you access to the Louvre! Also if you are under 26 most of the galleries are free! A bueatifulmcollectiin... More

There is so much to love about this hidden jewel. It is exciting to know that Delacroix lived and worked in these lovely structures. It is one of the most serene locations I have ever visited.

To be honest it's an interesting museum but def cannot make to your top list. I do enjoy some Delacroix works that I haven't seen before, and some of them are really exquisite. It's also nice to be at the little garden in a drizzling day by yourself. But if you have only couple days in Paris, put this to... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
