  • Museum hidden in arrears of Montparnasse, with gardens and huge artist Studio. To discover the approach of the sculptor and photographer. Large rooms, gardens, hidden, do not miss the terrace. Took advantage of the complementary Expo temporary "sound and fury" until January 29, 2016.

  • 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.
