N48°52.894' E 2°19.997' If paintings from the romantic period or the life achievements of philosopher Ernest Renan do not make an impression on you, the tea garden may deliver. Access to the museum is free without audio guide, so take the shortest route to the tea garden on the right under the trees. The only withdraw of the tea garden... More

I loved the place !!! A friend recommended this museum to us - and she was right! this charming courtyard is a cool, quiet oasis in the heart of Pigalle.

It is surprising to find a small charming XIX th century house in the middle of Paris. The quaint setting and free admission make up for the very limited range of the souvenirs and artifacts on display.

If you are searching for the soul of George sands,you are in for a treat. His aura, as well as, those of chopin,liszt,lamartine,Delacroix and tourgueniev, reside around the atmosphere of the museum which has kept the allure of the by-gone day Nouvelle athenes quarter's mansion and townhouses untouched. The museums charming old fashion garden is best appreciated in summer when... More

This is an interesting museum and not as hard to find as I had thought. The good news is it is free-the bad news is it is small and probably only takes 30 minutes to an hour to visit unless you stop at the cafe. Also, the day i went was very hot and there was no air. If you... More

this museum is really cute! The atmosphere is really relaxing and peaceful ! It's a real pleasure to walk around this museum :) but it's a very small museum with a small collection! The visit of it should not take more than 40 mins but it's not very touristic and therefore different from the big major museums like The Louvres... More

I arrived there today just before 2pm. I went into the office to purchase an audio guide. Clearly, I interrupted the lady behind the counter who was in full flow on the phone. She indicated to me to take a free ticket and waved her hand behind her, as if to say go over there, I stepped out, looked around... More

Beautiful little museum housed in the former villa of painter Ary Scheffer and filled with 19th century art & artifacts related to novelist George Sand, Chopin, the poet Alfred de Musset and their friends. It is well preserved and really makes you feel that you have stepped back in time as you wander through the lovely rooms or sit in... More
