Entering a persons home or art studio is always an adventure. This petite musee is somewhat of an adventure to find but even more exquisite once you are inside. It houses an exhibit (this time Picasso), Delacroix' paintings, his studio and gardens. All of this only one city block away from the St Germain de Pres square. Delacroix' paintings are... More

If you have the Louvre pass which allows you to visit here without having to pay an additional ticket, you should visit this museum and the surrounding area. A must for all Delacroix fans.

If you are at ALL a fan of Delacroix (genius painter of Liberty Leading the People) you will very much enjoy this museum. It's a hidden gem in the 6th set up in Delacroix's home and studio. The painters bedroom and living room have been converted into charming little galleries showing original drawings and paintings. In fact, the bedroom is... More

I was very excited to view this museum after taking a private tour of the area and Saint sulspice where his works were placed.

We came here after our visit to the Louvre, as the ticket covers both museums. This museum was a bit hard to find as it is hidden in the corner of a square. We loved the intimate setting of this museum, being able to see and experience where the artist based himself and completed his work. We arrived here late... More

This is a wonderful small museum showing a couple dozen paintings and some very interesting lithographs by the artist. It's located within the artists former residence with a nice little garden, very peaceful. This was a very quick visit but quite interesting with some really nice art. Your Louvre museum ticket includes entrance to this fine museum.

This is a small museum down a quiet street which was once the home to Delacroix and his studio. In contrast to the other museums we visited, there were no crowds so it was easy to get around. The first thing that hits you as you climb the stairs to the first room is a pungent aroma akin to stale... More

Yes Musee dOrsay is not far away and yes it does contain a whole lot more. But this is a pleasant interlude in a quiet backstreet and worth a poke around. Pleasant garden and a few interesting pieces, without being overwhelming. There isn't an awful lot of additional information (thought there was some renovation work going on during our visit)...

An underrated Parisian attraction, and, consequently, quieter to enjoy. The museum was originally the house/studio where Eugene Delacroix lived and worked, and it is dedicated to his art and his life. Highly recommended.

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.
