I visited over Christmas and it was beautiful. Small but you have to take in the experience of being where he lived. Take the time to visit the garden, even in the rain. It will transport you to a better understanding of the artist. Also, the staff is very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend a visit to the St.... More

This little museum is located in a peaceful square. As one reviewer noted, the special exhibition contained etchings from scenes in Shakespeare plays, not the colorful, action filled Delacroix paintings expected. Nevertheless, the little garden square, found past the studio and down some steps, provides a peaceful place to mellow out.

This is a quaint little museum of a major painter. The studio is as the artist used it with paints, palletes, working canvases, etc. Take time to sit in the private garden as it is very tranquil. The actual number of paintings is small, but the entire museum experience is one to be treasured. This is truly a hidden jewel... More

Small museum, good place to go to get away from the crowds. When we went there was an exhibit of etchings based on Shakespeare plays in the main building. This was not of great interest to us and we wished there had been more paintings. The studio (one large room) is in the charming garden behind. There are more paintings... More

This little place, where Delacroix once lived at the end of his life, is in the centre of the Saint-Germain quarter. The atelier of Delacroix is a high room separate from the main building. It has a lot of glass towards the garden. Must have been nice to sit here and paint. The beautiful and quiet little garden is also... More

We took advantage of the free museum entry first Sunday of the month. There were quiet a few People visiting the gallery. Don't know much about his art work. We had seen Delacroix's work in Saint Sulpice Cathedral. There is a lovely walled garden as art of the gallery.

A tiny museum. I'm not a great fan of Delacroix, but the house itself is worth a visit. The studio is a lovely space, and the little garden is very pretty and well maintained- one of those peaceful hidden corners of Paris. The area around the museum is also good for a wander. If you have a ticket for the... More

This museum is situated in the former apartment and in the studio where the 19th-century painter Eugène Delacroix lived and worked in the last years of his life. Delacroix museum worth a visit if you pass in the neighborhood. It has been preserved and has a number of his works on display. It displays some of original sketches, paintings, studies,... More

This museum was by far the worst museum that I have ever been to in Paris. The paintings in this museum was almost non-existant. His great paintings must have been in another museum because I know he was a great artist. I think I did see maybe 3 or 4 good paintings there. That was all. I wouldn't waste my... More

Since the Louvre tok control, the facility has been much improved. The atelier shows more his work. The exhibit focuses this year on his devotion to Shakespeare with many of his etching stones and lithographs on display. The garden is very well mainained
