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

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.

I chose to visit here because like many museums in Paris it is free on the first Sunday of the month. I knew today would be very hot and I didn't want to wait in a long line at the more well known museums. Furthermore, this museum has a free app which you can download before arriving for an "audio...

This is a small museum but worth visiting to see how Delacroix worked, and created a studio and garden in this old part of Paris. If you are lucky Niko, one of the assistants, may show you around the garden, and some photos of before and after it was developed, including the bill for Delacroix's plants, which gave a good...

We stopped here primarily to purchase our Museum Pass knowing that it would be free of the madding crowd. We are pleasantly surprised to find an unusual respite from the crazy Paris museum scene and happy to learn more about Delacroix and visit the home and studio he occupied for part of his life.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
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.
