Inspiring!

It is a small museum but it was an inspiring visit. Some presentations can be better, but his art work is beautiful. It is worth a visit.

If you want to enjoy at the same time visiting a lovely museum and escaping from hectic Paris, this is probably the nicest option. You won't be disappointed anyway.

This small museum is worth while visiting. The art work is interesting (only sculptures) but what was really nice was the museums location and the fact that the artist himself had lived and worked in this small house and studio. Unfortunately, however, there is not very much evidence of Zadkines' everyday life and work in the museum (like a kitchen... More

This is Zadkine's residence & atelier, finely restored and free (!) to visit. Hats off to Paris municipality - not because of the savings I made, but for the foresight and intelligence. Such a small place would not generate a lot of money anyway. Still, Zadkine is one of the most interesting sculptors of the early & mid-20th century, with... More

Well worth a visit. The works are exquisite, and beautifully displayed. The garden is lovely. There is no charge, but you can get the audiophone guide for just 3 euros.

I had never heard of this artist and I thought I had a good grip on French art. This museum introduced us to a very talented artist. This was the private home of the artist and his wife - who willed it to the city. In addition to his collection of art, you also get to stroll through their home... More

We went to this museum today. All the paintings have been removed for the next 4 years and Zadkine's atelier was also closed to the public. There are perhaps 30 small sculptures and 10 large ones left to view. There is a 2 euro entry free (although the ticket has 'gratuit' printed on it) and the attendant decided to keep... More

It is a small museum in the former house of O.Zadkine with ca 300 beautiful sculptures, drawings, photographs . Some of the sculptures are in a small garden. The short visit is worth your time and will give you some pause from the crowds.

First of all, the entrance is free of charge on all opening days ... pretty exceptional !!! This is the opportunity to discover an artist is his former house, nice atmosphere. The visit is not that long (approx. 1 hours) but is interesting, staff is helpful.

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

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.
