  • Really tricky to find. We have an existing interest in Delacroix, otherwise we would probably have given up. Shame there were so few paintings, but that could have been because the museum was being re...  more »
  • Very nice area for workshop filled with charm. Damage part of the workshop is under construction (April). Possible access to a free application for more information about the works and the place. Garden filled with charm especially in spring (flowers...). Staff very attentive. A cycle on the poetry is ongoing. It's a plus that brings to the visit. Visit which will last about 30 min. continue with the visit of the London churches of close and Saint Sulpice, where you'll find other works of Delacroix...

  • Come and learn all about the life of Delacroix, set up in his residence and studio. Good representations of his art. Best of all, it's located on the terrific Place Furstemberg.  more »

  • 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
