The Zadkine, just south of the Luxembourg Gardens, is a great find. It's housed in the studios and house where he lived for forty years and this gives a real sense of his work. The sculptures are superb and the setting wonderful. Most of the work is in the studio but a few are placed in the lovely small garden.... More

If you are overwhelmed by the Louvre, this is a perfect museum. Formerly the home, gardens and studio of sculptor Zadkine, this place gives you insight into how he and his wife lived in Paris. Tucked behind a five story building, is this priceless, private spot. You can step back in time and get a taste of what it was... More

This museum used to be the home and atelier of sculptor Zadkine and his wife, a painter herself. The garden is lovely, with some out-doors works. and the interiors show his work to great effect.

We almost missed the actual museum, not realising you had to walk down the side alley through the little back garden and around to where the museum entry was located. We were standing in front of the imposing building on the main road when a small group just went past us an around the side, so we followed them and... More

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.

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.
