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

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

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.
