  • Museum very rich and beautiful on the work of Bourdelle. Beautiful gardens and monumental scuptures. The building doesn't have the charm of the Rodin Museum but is a curiosity, 5 minutes from the Montparnasse tower. Only negative point: some rooms were closed by "lack of staff"...

  • Bourdelle was a pupil of Auguste Rodin, so it is fitting that this museum has a feel similar to Musee Rodin, with the artist's works being pleasingly displayed indoors & in garden settings. "Hercules ...  more »
  • Advised by a conservator, we discovered a little gem on Bourdelle (pupil of Rodin) and Professor of Giacometti extremely rich, interesting on the different stages of the design of a bronze and located in a bucolic setting steps from the Montparnasse tower. All for free! A must-see.

  • The Musée Bourdelle is an art museum located in the 15th arrondissement of Paris. It is easily accesible by metro. The museum preserves the studio of sculptor Antoine Bourdelle and provides an example of Parisian ateliers from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. It was Bourdelle's active studio from 1885-1929. I really enjoyed it!
  • Nice museum, great art work. Showing great sculpture work and history.
  • A very good sculptures museum in Paris.
  • This is such a beautiful museum in so many ways. Firstly, Bourdelle's art work is fantastic. It is just as good as his master Rodin's. Secondly, la mairie de Paris has preserved Bourdelle's old home perfectly. Visitors can see Bourdelle's old work spaces and galleries. Since a decade ago there is a modern building attached, functioning as an extended gallery. It's the best possible way to display such nice work. It's a quiet area and the museum is fairly unknown, which makes it calm and peaceful.
  • What a beautiful Museum. He must raise his head to admire the colossi, hair and other impressive statues. And when we drop, it is to marvel at the gardens and equally magnificent workshops in another kind.
