  • Small museum but very expensive relative to the size. More exhibits in the workshop was not visible (because of poetry reading).

  • This small museum is worth a visit even if the most important works of Delacroix are in the Louvre or in St Denis of the Blessed Sacrament; people come to see the painter's Studio, but it's an almost empty except for one box of paint. There are still a few paintings and drawings to discover for fans of Delacroix. The guards provide good information to visitors.

  • One of these small museum unpretentious with a lovely home, a building so sweet and full of history and exhibitions of paintings interesting even if few paintings are visible.

  • I am not an art expert, for the paintings I have found here I was not very impressed. But it's a great place for cultural events (they have a monthly program). The hidden garden is very nice and quiet! It's an attraction for not mainstream public
  • A great small museum which is really worth a visit. It's situated in a old building complex with a fine permanent exhibition in the main house and some changing exhibitions in the former atelier, situated in a nice and lovely garden which was restyled from the chief gardener from the Tuileries garden in 2012. The entrance is free if you have a entrance ticket from the Louvre museum from the same day.
  • Located in one of my favourite spots in the 'quartier latin' is the tiny museum dedicated to Eugène Delacroix, which despite its size showcases a very interesting selection of prints and paintings both by Delacroix himself and by other artists of the same period. The museum is established inside of the artist's house and workshop. Admission is free for EU residents under 25yo. Personnel is very kind and I think the place never gets really crowded. Very good experience overall
  • Nice little place mostly dedicated to artist's work. Little garden is absolutely quiet in the middle of rush hour. Enter for free with the same day Louvre tickets. Unless you are a real Delacruix connoisseur it won't take much time to visit. Almost nothing in English.
  • Nice little place for Delacroix lovers, but no English texts nor is there a lot to see. Go for free with your Louvre ticket.
