The musee Henner will be closed from September 17th 2013until spring 2015 due to extensive construction wFormerly a private mansion and studio built in the 19th century, the Museum is dedicated to the work of Jean-Jacques Henner considered at the beginning of the 20th century to be one of the most important painters of his time. Its display follows the chronological itinerary of this artist from his native Alsace to Paris, where he settled, and Italy after receiving the Prix de Rome. The numerous works from the artist's studio reveal the working methods of an "official" painter of the Impressionist period.

Great to see what an hotel particulier looks like inside , with mouthwatering studio which for information wasn't... More

I'll be honest I didn't know much about this artist but it seems he was considered quite important in his time. This is another of those 'hidden gem' places...small and very interesting and in a lovely house to boot. It has recently reopened and it takes about an hour to do it justice; Coupled with its "partner" museum Gustave Moreau... More

Though the museum is currently under reconstruction I await its grand reopening hopefully in the Spring of 2016. The exhibits that are open here are marvelous. Jean-Jacques Henner's work is also showcased among the warm and delightful confines of this beautiful mansion in the 17th eme. After viewing the last exhibit we were also able to take a short walk...

This museum is strange: the location is in a north-west residential part of Paris, far away from most tourist attractions. We went on a Saturday afternoon and were the only (!) visitors when we arrived. I soon understood why: there is not much to see here. The rooms are full portraits (most unknown people) and reposing corpses (or "crucifixion nudes").... More

This is a great museum full of beautiful paintings of red heads (and others). Exceptional work and worth going to. As said by others, you can actually study the art and enjoy it without hoards of people running into you or climbing up your leg to take a picture. There are several creaky floors in this old house, with maybe... More

Tired of museums congested like subway platforms ? Would like to have the time to get closer, enjoy the silence, be alone in a room the artist's legacy ? See works that do 'speak' to you regardless of your own preferences ? Toss in a grand old house looking like a haunted place that has been freshly refurbished and you... More

If like me you are visiting Paris and you would like something that is a little bit less crowded and a little bit more authentic than the main places packed with tourists, this is definitely the place to go. It makes for an excellent visit, the neighborhood is lovely and the museum is really well organised. It's a good place... More

I stumbled upon this hotel in one of the nicest parts of Paris, the beautiful and relatively quiet 17th arrondissement, essentially by chance. The building is a remarkable turn of the century mansion, with an original interior combining all sorts of influences, from neo-classical to Arabic. The museum is named after Henner, a French painter who was one of the... More
