“A very nice museum”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

This small museum displays temporary exhibitions of high interest and quality - we visited the current one about Dream in the Renaissance times. The book store is very rich. And after visiting, just enjoy some hot chocolate at the Angelina outlet just down the stairs !

“Chagall exhibition”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We visited the Chagall exhibition in Paris in July and it sensational. Standing in line we met some wonderful people from Melbourne and we met again after to discuss the display. It was well planned and the exhibition was well worth a visit. We had missed a similar earlier in our trip so appreciated it all the more.

“More than Monet”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Very original designed museum where you can see the Grandes décorations of Monet and more. Nice boutique to buy souvenirs. Less crowded than Musee D'Orsay and Louvre. I had see the Grandes Decorations at Boston Museum of Fine arts and I was very interesting to see them in their home place.

“Great Chagall Exhibit”
Reviewed July 27, 2013

We visited the Musee du Luxembourg specifically to see the Chagall exhibit. There is a fee, and this museum is not covered by the Paris Museum Pass. It was a quiet afternoon, and we were able to move through the exhibit relatively easily without being overcrowded. Depending on what exhibits they have on, I would recommend a visit. It also gave us the opportunity to stroll through the Luxembourg Gardens afterwards, which I would highly recommend.

“Well Paced and Very Illuminating.”
Reviewed July 19, 2013

We got there early in the morning and walked straight in. Thankfully, no long queue. The exhibition was excellent. It covered the period of Chargall's life from before World War One to the 1980's. It showed very vividly how Chargall's content and technique changed according to significent events in his life namely the war with the Nazis, his Jewish and Russian background as well as his great love for his wife and his extreme grief when she died. But it is the paintings that steal the show. So emotional and so easy to interpret. Whet your art appetite here before the Louvre and Musee D'Orsay. Very comfortable museum, shops, toilets and single level with no stairs make for a plasant walking tour.
