  • Next, as a pilgrimage, the stages of the life of this great politician, lover of the arts (in Mouilleron Pareds and St. Vincent of Jard), and seen the grave of a great simplicity in Mouchamps in Vendée, needed to discover the Paris apartment transformed into a Museum of exceptional richness. All these documents are even better understand the struggles by 'The Tiger': against injustice, religion, crime with the famous brigades, the enemies of the France and their echo by the caricatures and articles in the press of the time. The furniture which he was surrounded, the voluminous library, pictures, statues and paintings (of his friend Monet) on two floors complete this exceptional place. It is a must visit.

  • Accidentally visiting this museum-apartment after visiting the exhibition at the Trocadero in this House of French Prime Minister Clemenceau lived for 35 years. Doctor of medicine, journalist and politician Georges Clemenceau-stayed in power for more than half a century. First as Mayor of Monmartrskogo district, and then as a Deputy, and then was twice Prime Minister of France. And only a loud scandal connected with the construction of the Panama Canal, buried his hopes of becoming President of France. Incidentally, this scandal has forced the connoisseur of Asian culture and a passionate collector of Georges Clemenceau to part with his "Eastern" collection of the Museum of Georges Clemenceau is located on two floors of the mansion, to which adjoins a small garden with Conservatory. On the ground floor there is an apartment, in which you saved the situation what it was during the life of a famous politician. And on the second floor of the collected exhibits: documents, books, movies, personal things, which tell about the life and work of Georges Clemenceau in 1926 year. home owners put it up for sale. The House claimed the Jesuit order, planning to expand your College, but mansion on auction buys James Douglas, Canadian businessman and admirer Clemenceau for 950 thousand francs to his idol can survive his days in familiar surroundings. And after the death of politics in 1929 year ordered to open it as a museum. For its content created the private foundation, which made your part and three children of French politics. And in the year 1931 House Museum first opened its doors to visitors for the lovers of good Museum of French history

  • This museum is the former apartment of one who has been called "the Tiger". It has been restored and looked less dated there a dozen years. It's a curiosity to think that one penetrates in the intimacy of a great man, even in his bedroom. In the end it doesn't have great interest. However, his office made to measure furniture worth. What is more interesting is located upstairs, which has nothing to do with the apartment, a kind of documentation centre very well organized and who can bring a lot to researchers interested in this great political figure.

  • A Wonderful, dedicated museum. Time Capsule + wealth of information. Try to see a conference about Clemenceau (app 1 hour, very insightful)
  • A small house nestled in a greenery setting, shame that it is not visible from the outside, the free audio guide is welcome to understand the life of the politician, a great discovery...

  • Museum to discover absolutely: both Georges Clemenceau's apartment remained intact with its late 19th-early 20th decoration and its works of art many original or old copies (Rodin, showman, Poussin, Monet, Manet,...) as the documentary Gallery (which traces the life of the Tiger). More unexpected, we can walk in the garden, haven of peace near the Trocadero and sit under the bamboo. A must!

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
