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.

A very small museum consisting of Delacroix's old appartment and studio. Worth for its history car the collection is very limited. The place is beautiful, however, with a stunning romantic garden re-created according to what is known of Delacroix's original garden and his favourite flowers. You leave this place feeling like you met the actual man, not the artist.

The house was dimly lit but that did not provide ambiance, rather a sense of gloom. The displays were minimal, and lots of rooms were locked. I spent more time reading descriptions than admiring the artifacts. Also... there was a distinct smell of ammonia around the house. Not pleasant. I got free entry so I don't regret going, but it's...

They try, but this museum is just not very interesting. If we did not have a museum pass I would have felt worse. There are some interesting illustrations in the three small rooms that make up the museum, but there is far more of his work in the Louvre. There is also a lingering smell of urine which is very...

We visited as my husband is a fan and the entry was covered with our Paris Passes. It's a small museum, but has a lot of good pieces and isn't crowded. There's also a nice courtyard garden for relaxing before continuing on with the day. It's also in a lovely neighbourhood in Paris. I'm glad we went!
