To be honest it's an interesting museum but def cannot make to your top list. I do enjoy some Delacroix works that I haven't seen before, and some of them are really exquisite. It's also nice to be at the little garden in a drizzling day by yourself. But if you have only couple days in Paris, put this to... More

I visited over Christmas and it was beautiful. Small but you have to take in the experience of being where he lived. Take the time to visit the garden, even in the rain. It will transport you to a better understanding of the artist. Also, the staff is very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend a visit to the St.... More

This little museum is located in a peaceful square. As one reviewer noted, the special exhibition contained etchings from scenes in Shakespeare plays, not the colorful, action filled Delacroix paintings expected. Nevertheless, the little garden square, found past the studio and down some steps, provides a peaceful place to mellow out.

This is a quaint little museum of a major painter. The studio is as the artist used it with paints, palletes, working canvases, etc. Take time to sit in the private garden as it is very tranquil. The actual number of paintings is small, but the entire museum experience is one to be treasured. This is truly a hidden jewel... More

Small museum, good place to go to get away from the crowds. When we went there was an exhibit of etchings based on Shakespeare plays in the main building. This was not of great interest to us and we wished there had been more paintings. The studio (one large room) is in the charming garden behind. There are more paintings... More

This little place, where Delacroix once lived at the end of his life, is in the centre of the Saint-Germain quarter. The atelier of Delacroix is a high room separate from the main building. It has a lot of glass towards the garden. Must have been nice to sit here and paint. The beautiful and quiet little garden is also... More

We took advantage of the free museum entry first Sunday of the month. There were quiet a few People visiting the gallery. Don't know much about his art work. We had seen Delacroix's work in Saint Sulpice Cathedral. There is a lovely walled garden as art of the gallery.

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 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

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.
