  • Although does not contain so many works by Delacroix, must have some thirty frames him for a place with great works of the painter. There is the House where he lived and where he also kept his Studio for a considerable time. The garden behind the Studio is also another special experience. Is close to the café de Flore in the Saint Germain de Pres is a small museum and is worth to be visited. In addition, the region where it is located, is really pretty, full of small design shops, art galleries and buildings well pretty.

  • It's free admission if you show your ticket admission from Louvre Museum for a same day visit. The museum are display artworks and all relating to Delacroix. 
  • Eugène Delacroix-famous French painter. But in this museum-apartment I advise go only present his personality fans wishing to learn the details of private life, etc. Because enjoy the genius of Delacroix is better at the Louvre, where is it works. In the same small-actually, the apartments themselves, sketches, letters, and personal belongings. Oh yes, and a garden with a rose garden, but I happened to be here on a rainy day, so sad I only seemed to look:) In principle, the Museum is located a few steps from the Church Saint-Germain-des-Pres, and if you have some free time and free visit, purkua and PA. Personally, I think that the seven euro is not worth visiting.

  • Paris is a city, yes. And Saint-Germain is no small district. But time and again I’ve always stumbled upon quiet squares and enclaves that is both romantic and charming. One of it is Rue de Furstenberg which was an amazing hidden gem that is miles apart from the busy boulevard off the main street. Musée Delacroix is also located in this lovely square, celebrating Delacroix’s works from the romantic age. The museum was converted from the celebrated artist’s final residence. Delacroix’s most famous piece is the Liberty Leading the People (this piece is displayed at the Louvre-Lens) depicting the French Revolution with a woman symbolising liberty holding up the French tri-colour flag.
  • Very small, and a bit overpriced, but if you happen to be in the area, why not pop in.
  • This little gem of a museum is often overlooked by tourists. Lucky you. And the square it sits on is one of the prettiest in Paris.
  • Fascinating, especially if you are interested in Delacroix.
  • Le musée est magnifique
