Musee du Luxembourg, Paris

4.1
#36 of 142 in Museums in Paris
Initially housed in the Palais du Luxembourg, Musee du Luxembourg was the first French art museum to be opened to the public--in 1750. As one of the leading exhibit spaces in Paris, it houses the masterpieces of Botticelli, Raphaël, Titian, Arcimboldo, Veronese, Gauguin, Matisse, Vlaminck, Modigliani, and Lucas Cranach. Much of the work first shown here has found its way into other museums of Paris, including the Jeu de Paume, the Orangerie, and ultimately the Musée National d'Art Moderne and the Musée d'Orsay.

  • Beautifully staged exhibition, each section building a narrative of the artist's development. Plenty of information, both in sheets (in many different languages), and on the walls. Whether Tintoretto ...  more »
  • Discover the Tintoretto at the beginning of his career with various paintings on mythological, religious reasons or the absolutely stunning portraits. This exhibition makes you want to return to Venice to discover the rest of the work of this painter who traveled little but which is inspired by the other Venetian artists.

  • This is the title of this exhibition at the Luxembourg Museum, or I made the discovery of this painter I knew only by name. Early works presented here and are a good way to understand his style and technique and give want to discover more before this "competitor" of Titian and Veronese. A beautiful exhibition.

  • Yeah a bit pricey but your in Paris. Go to see one exhibit and really spend time with it. No doubt it will be packed but if you stay with it and spend time with the pieces you like, it will feel better than if you try to see everything and “get your money’s worth”. Truth is you won’t get much that way. Afterwards go to the cafe in the park next to the museum because there is not much better than a coffee and pastry under the trees by a museum in Paris.
  • Exhibition is good. And almost staff is kind. But one staff is very rude. He is black, but i think he is racist. lol
  • Pricy and small. Good collection but just too small.
  • Came here for Pissario's exhibition. Wonderful museum. Nicely layout rooms. Great gift shop. We also ate at the museum restaurant. Not bad for a late lunch. Food was pretty good. I would highly recommend seeing an exhibition here.
  • I'm crazy about this museum. It's just the right size... and for the most part, they have very interesting expos of many wonderful artists. It's also a pleasure visiting the Luxembourg Gardens!
