  • All visit interesting small museum with few tables, but despite this, the garden is lovely but a little disappointed by the workshop which has been renovated, there are a few tables (temporary exhibition) but nothing regarding his painting materials, a few bridges finally found in a masterclass.

  • A peaceful little museum with a garden. Perfect if you're tired of queueing for the more renowned galleries.
  • Some texts are missing the English translation, but it is a great place!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Museum is a little small but nice
