  • Very good museum but it is very small. It shouldn’t take you more than an hour and a half to do it. Pretty garden
  • Small but comfortable and the yard is beautiful. Would be a nice choice to spend your afternoon here.
  • The studies are quite impressive but it feels like just a taster to a such an impressive artist. Not enough substance to go on.
  • Small museum. Not many art pieces Delacroix displayed. Shop downstairs have good books for sale.
  • In a courtyard off a pretty tree-shaded square, this museum is housed in the romantic artist’s home and studio at the time of his death in 1863. It contains a collection of his oil paintings, watercolours, pastels and drawings, including many of his more intimate works, such as An Unmade Bed (1828) and his paintings of Morocco. A ticket from the Musée du Louvre allows same-day entry here (you can also buy tickets here and skip the Louvre’s ticket queues).
