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

At the time we were getting ready to leave for Paris and that being beginning of Sept we were checking for closures and days not open for everything we were hoping to do and the notice of temporary closure was not on the site at this time. We had walked for quite awhile to get there to find it closed... 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!

This is a museum of quality and NOT quantity. It really is worth a visit, simply to sit in Zadkine's garden to have a few minutes of quiet whilst admiring his amazing work. Like the Musee Bourdelle, it is free and the personality of the artist shines through since it is his house. The Museum is also very convenient for... More

I wasn't familiar with this sculptor until I came across the www.millerwalks.com (Walking Paris with Henry Miller) website and found out that Zadkine was the inspiration for Miller's "M. Borowski" character. The hidden gem has very good art works (mainly wood and stone sculptures) and is thoughtfully laid out. Admission is free but I was happy to make a donation... More
