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

Not a big museum, but the exhibitions they have are excellent. Unfortunately due to the small spece, almost every time their is a big crowd. We have seen a great Chagall exhibition and now the Tudors, both time long waiting time - even with on-line bought tickets, and the buildeing is fully packed.

I visited the museum specifically for The Tudors exhibit. As a Tudors fan I was very excited to visit. Unfortunately I felt the exhibition itself was very limited. There are some beautiful items in the exhibit. I wish there was more. The museum is very clean and air conditioned.

Luxembourg Museum sits near the entrance to Luxembourg Garden and better to be visited together with it. At the time of my visit it had a very nice exhibition on the Tudor dynasty but I think they change the exhibits from time to time. The admission price was 12 euros.

The location is convenient, and the ticket counter designed by Shigeru Ban with cardboard tube is unusual. That's it. You have toi wait too long to buy the tickets; these tickets are expensive; the collection is small; the agents are not always very efficient.

Well worth a visit. It is the first time that an exhibition of this quality on the Tudors is held outside of the UK. The portraits and manuscripts are exceptional.

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.
