A small but well maintained museum showcasing some of the lesser known pieces by Delacroix, few interesting artifacts and an outstanding garden. Not to be missed is the atelier which is in a different building, close by.

The Musee Eugene Delacroix is truely a hidden gem on the Left Bank, right in the heart of St Germain des Pres, Paris and is a must for all true lovers of art. This museum was the home of Delacroix and hosted George Sand for many years as well. A time capsule of delacroix's life (without furniture), but filled with... More

It's free admission if you show your ticket admission from Louvre Museum for a same day visit. The museum are display artworks and all relating to Delacroix.

There is not much to see here. Even with museum pass I wouldn't bother spend time getting to this museum. The location is intimate, the house itself too. But the collection is smaller than I thought.

As you walk through Delacoix's studio, you become aware of the presence of the man - in portraits, in colors and emotions, in his work, in his home. This small intimate museum gives you a sense of visiting him at home - as if he is in the next room going about his work. It was quiet the morning we... More

My wife and I both like Delacroix's work and noticed that this was included with the Louvre admission, and only a 15 minute walk. The museum is the artist's former home, connected to his atelier or studio overlooking his private garden... all accessible to the visitor. We really enjoyed this visit, showing a slice of the artist's life after he... More

Although not furnished as a house museum, the gallery exhibition is very interesting and gives insight into the painter's life and work, which made for a richer experience in the Louvre and elsewhere subsequently. Recommended for art lovers.

Looking forward to seeing some lovely Delacroix paintings and hardly any there. What was were so small it was hardly worth going. Mainly artefacts from travels, paintings by others a'prez (after Delacroix). Had to negotiate around an exhibition of the most ghastly modern furniture, almost tripping up on the carpets in the same modern designs, one person from the museum... More

This s a small museum with a beautiful garden. Delacroix lived here, and chose the plantings. I much preferred it to the Picasso museum, for its warm humanity, small intimate scale and pleasant atmosphere. Lovely to sit awhile in the sheltered garden. Good choice of books and postcards. In a very attractive area, easy walking distance to the river, lots... More

The museum occupies part of the apartment on Place Fürstenberg, where the painter died, and his workshop which opens onto a private garden. In 1857 Eugène Delacroix, who was sick and tired, decided to leave Notre-Dame de Lorette to be closer to the Eglise Saint-Sulpice where he had been responsible for decorating the Chapelle des Saints-Anges, considered as his spiritual...

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
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.
