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.

This museum which was recently given many of the artists' works by the Louvre offers the visitor a glimpse into the life of this interesting artist. There is no entrance fee if you have the Museum Pass or if you have a ticket to the Louvre but you might want to check on this. It is located in a area... More

This past Sunday (the first Sunday of the month in Paris) most museums were free in Paris. We had been advised to avoid the larger museums on this day because of overcrowding (by the amazing Paul of Wego Walking Tours). So we settled on this small and hidden museum which had once been the home of Eugene Delacroix. When I... More

I have always enjoyed seeing Delacroix' works. This museum adds to an understanding of the artist, his background and interests in German and English literature. The apartment is well hidden. You get to explore portions of the Left Bank close to the Seine. And you get to see what true admirers of an individual can do. It is remarkable. If... More

This is a very small museum in the apartment and studio of Delacroix. The art and objects are perfect for reminding you how much you love his works. The perfect addition is the lovely little garden which Delacroix designed (as he did his studio). The garden was restored to his plans by the gardeners of the Tuileries.

This small museum is hidden away behind gates in a courtyard in the corner. It took me ages to find it! The best thing about this museum is the studio and garden. Entry is included with the entry to the Louvre.

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.
