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!

We probably would not have sought this out if it had not been included in the Paris Museum Pass. It was a small but lovely collection of his works, housed in the apartment where he lived (and died) as well as his studio. It was a little hard to find but I like his work and it was worth it... More

Located in a small pretty neighborhood square and easy to find as there are signs pointing the way. The exhibit is in the last home of the artist as he was painting frescoes such as Jacob wrestling with the angel in Saint Sulpice. There is a good display of paintings, drawings, etchings and letters. A pretty garden is worth a... More

The museum is located in one of the most charming Parisian neighbourhoods. The house is well kept and shows small but well curated exhibitions. It is firstly the house and not the Delacroix museum. Worth the visit if you are an artist. Small garden is worth the visit in spring.

I visited the museum in November 2012. Unfortunately, both the studio and gardens were closed. That left a few rooms with sparse furniture and paintings to visit. It was so bad that they didn't actually charge admission. I would not go here again until the studio is open. Enjoy Paris!

I am a painter and Delacroix is one of my favorites but I wouldn't come again. The smell of urine in the stairway permeated the entire museum making this a most unpleasant experience. Apparently homeless are allowed to sleep in the staircase at night or at least use it as a bathroom. The garden mentioned below was closed for a... More

We were on the street. It was raining. It was on the museum pass. Need I say .more? Four rooms. The artist is not well known to me. Experts might enjoy Much More. I hope.
