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.

I went to the Tudor exhibition and liked it very much. The exhibition had an exquisite collection of paintings and artifacts. I also found the audio guide extremely useful as it explained every exhibit in detail along with short historical anecdotes thereby setting the scene for the entire exhibition. I found my visit very informative as I learnt a lot... More

We went here to see the exhibition on the Tudors. It was pretty interesting, especially some of the portraits. They did a good job of explaining the history and you got a pretty decent sense of who some of the players were.

This is a wonderful exhibition mainly of Tudor portraits brought over from many different collections in England. It is a must for all lovers of English history. Well displayed and well lit. The restaurant next to the Museum is also worth a visit.

A beautiful building, friendly helpful staff. The Tudors, was disappointing. Yes, there was some fantastic artwork. Yes there was some fantastic history. But - really- translation into English would be good. I know we are in a France. How many visitors are French speaking? And how many have English as their second or third language. Not worth €12.

We had planned to include England by train on our visit but ended up staying in Paris. This exhibit arrived in France on the 18th of March. WE WENT! It was amazing. A little cramped but once it cleared a bit it was nice to linger infront of the life sized paintings of Henry the 8th, some of his wives,... 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.
