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

First: Delacroix is one of my favoritie artists, so that accounts for a lot of my four-star review. This is a small (very) museum in Germain de Pres well off the beaten tourist path. If you want to enjoy a walk through an old Paris neighborhood -- complete with twisting streets, cobblestones, leaning houses and cafes -- then this is... More

The Musee Delacroix is located in one of my favorite Left Bank spots, Place de Fürstenbourg, and provides an intimate view of 19th century Paris. If you are suffering from art/sensory overload, this museum is a nice change of pace from the larger museums allowing for a mini-visit (less than an hour.) Afterwards, you can stroll around the charming neighborhood... More

We went to this since it was included in the Paris Museul Pass but I'm glad we did. He was a great painter and there are some beautiful paintings here. The house that it's in also used to be a palace and it was very impressive. If you have the Museum Pass, find this place and spend some time learning... More

The Musee Delacroix is in a tucked-away neighborhood (Rue de Furstemburg) which many people might have difficulty finding. I toured it to see the exhibit on his sketches of Shakespeare. This is worth doing if you have the Paris Museum Pass, but I'm not sure I would pay for it on its own. His best-known work, "Liberty Leading the People"... More

Eugène Delacroix was a great fan of the theatre and likened an artist to an actor. In this exhibition at the Musée Delacroix (runs until 31 August 2014) his lithographs of scenes from Shakespeare - mostly Hamlet - are on show. This is one of those Parisian house museums, which always offer something on a bit smaller scale and often... More

Decided to go based on the revolutionary art of 1830 uprising but Delacroix was mainly concerned with Shakespeare! The museum is mainly lithographs of the plays with a huge number on Hamlet. Few bits from Morocco and quite pleasant to see studio/apartment with pretty little garden but not inspired.
