This small museum, dedicated to the work of Ossip Kadkine, is an absolute gem. Tucked away off the Rue d'Assas, it can be easily missed - look out for the sign on the pavement surface at the entrance. The museum, has been converted for his work and provides a light and intimate space. It is set around a small garden,... More

While the gallery is small it has a wonderfully laid out collection of sculptures in an incredibly light filled gallery which was once the artists home. Each room has a small number of pieces and there is a guide book (available in English) which explains each room, the pieces in it and some history of the room. The gallery leads... More

Take a walk at Luxembourg Gardens and stop by the Museum. This artist lived there and his sculptures are beautiful. The entrance is free and the museum is small but beautifully curated. Because very few people know about it you will avoid crowds and annoying selfies through out.

Finding it is half the fun. There is the entrance, hidden away down some non descript back alley It is a small place to be sure, yet has some really gorgeous pieces of sculpture. Be sure to go into the garden

This fascinating museum is off the beaten path as far as the museums of Paris are concerned. For those who are interested in sculpture , especially the sculpture of Zadkine , this is the place where he lived and worked and the place to go. This small museum houses a representative collection of his best work -- creatively displayed indoors... More

This small museum located on rue d'assas was a hidden treat for my husband and I on our recent trip to Paris. There is a temporary colour photograph exhibition being shown within the museum at this time and so it really is 2 for the price of 1. (entry is €7) The photos are really quite extraordinary and are in... More

Zadkine (Tsadkin in Russian) was a major avant-garde sculptor of 20th century, and this charming small museum houses a serious collection of his work and entrance is usually free. Right now and until April 13th 2014, there is a temporary photo exhibition on at the museum (so there's a 7€ admittance fee), featuring 100-year-old pics of Russia by Prokudin-Gorsky --... More

What brought us here last November was an exhibition of pre revolutionary color photographs taken mostly in rural Russia, between 1904 and 1916 by Serguey Procoudine-Gorsky. It truly was a portrait of a lost world. The technical quality of the photographs was quite impressive.He used some kind of three color separation process, like Technicolor, and there was little fading or... More

Seems so many places in Paris close without communication. We saw his statue in Luxembourg Garden and looked into learning more. We thought this would be a really great little hidden gem of a find. Disappointing!

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.
