    I visited Paris many artist workshops. This one is by far the least interesting. The exposed works are mediocre. The Louvre should use this space for exhibitions. Only the garden is unique, island of greenery in the heart of Paris

    Expected more. Museum in the former residence of the painter, the garden reached by a door that you walk past. The Studio is no longer recognizable as such, too bad actually. Am with a half hour through it.

    6 street of Furstenberg - Paris 6. The Museum hidden inside a courtyard is sheltered by the House of the painter. Visit collections, workshop and garden. Unusual and confidential visit to Paris

    Very little of his art on display. Nice garden. Lovely neighborhood but very difficult to find his house/museum

    Nearly hidden on a quiet square, you should definitely drop-in to see the collection when you take a tour of the Left Bank.

    Small museum run by people who really really like Delacroix. However this is a great place to pick up Louvre tickets.

    A stone's throw from Saint-Germain-des-Prés church, a little jewel box museum with a very pleasant garden.

    Very small, and contains none of the artist's top tier works. Best to go straight to the Louvre if you want to see Delacroix.

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.
