Went to see the exposition of Fragonard. Truly amazing and inspiring. Would love to go again. The audio guide was superb, made it all so comprehensive and meaningful. And as a treat you get to walk in the parc du Luxembourg, which is a treat as well.

We were lucky to be able to see this exhibit of Fragonard in this small museum attached to the Luxembourg Gardens. It has painting and drawing assembled from a number of museums and private collections. The descriptions are all in French, but there are English brochures as well as English audio guides.

A small. intimate museum, with an outstanding choice of exhibitions (the last we saw was "Fragonard in Love") always very well curated. To complete your visit a stroll in the lovely gardens is a must. My only complaint - one of the few museums in paris which prohibits photography.

If you soft pornography in 50 shades of pastel pink, then the Fragonard is for you. It was very interesting, well curated and thought provoking. Not the museum's fault that I will never be a Fragonard fan.

From now till January 24, 2017 the museum is having exhibit of romantic art work from the 18th century. Some of which may surprise you. We loved it. The 18th century according to some was one of seduction, intrigue and escapades. And here you can see them. We were surprised by how accurate yet beautiful some of these paintings showed... More

One of the lesser touted museums and therefore less crowded. They have a nice collection in a setting that is easy to walk through in a couple of hours. The surrounding grounds and gardens are beautiful and a meeting place for local parisians. Definitely recommend for that "what should we do today?" kind of day.

Nice exhibition about Fragonnard and his work during the enlightenment century. Beautiful paintings and the theme is about love and libertines. Paintings are from various origins either national museums or private collections. Anyway , for our pleasure they were there to discover and enjoy. The bookshop has also some nice books to further our knowledge about the theme. And of... More

This is the first time we've been in Paris when there was a show at the Luxembourg. I didn't know much of about his work and my wife skeptical about going. We couldn't get enough of the material. In addition to the mythological and historical work there is a significant concentration about the sexual mores of the period that caused... More

We like strolling around the Luxembourg Gardens so we were happy to make a long afternoon of our visit by going to the Tudor Exhibition. We had recently visited the National Portrait Gallery in London and thought we might have already seen most of the items, but we hadn't. There was a good mixture of paintings, letters, a costume or... More

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.
