  • Close to Montparnasse the bourdelle Museum is in the former workshop of the artist. It is large and houses many works out in courses or gardens, some of them are monumental. Inside the collection is arranged in several rooms. In a technique of the bronze sculpture is explained, in others of the plaster busts, or those of Beethoven... Currently, the Museum houses an exhibition about the creation in Balenciaga black. This mixing of genres is fantastic and shows that haute couture is an art. Not to be missed.

  • Very easy access because near Montparnasse, the Bourdelle Museum is particularly rich in works. The Gigantism of the great sculptor of the early twentieth isn't cramped and the extension of the architect Portzamparc is perfect to House some sculptures. It looks in the workshops of Bourdelle that nothing has changed and that the artist will resume his chisel. The current exhibition "The work to black Balenciaga" is splendid. Price of admission €10 without reduction.

  • 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.
