  • Small but very interesting Museum. Don't expect to find many works by the artist: is beautifully preserved, especially the atelier which is worth a visit. Also interesting objects from the private collection of Delacroix. After the visit it is worth walking around the neighborhood and stop for lunch at one of the many brasseries.

  • On our recent trip to Paris, since it was a repeat trip, we tried to see some of the lesser known museums. We enjoyed exploring this one very much, once we found it. Its kind of hidden away but my tru...  more »
  • The Museum is in the former apartment of Delacroix. If we can deplore the few exposed works, the place is very romantic. Especially visit the workshop of the artist who offers a small moment of happiness out of time.

  • 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.
  • Very little of his art on display. Nice garden. Lovely neighborhood but very difficult to find his house/museum
  • Nearly hidden on a quiet square, you should definitely drop-in to see the collection when you take a tour of the Left Bank.
  • Small museum run by people who really really like Delacroix. However this is a great place to pick up Louvre tickets.
  • A stone's throw from Saint-Germain-des-Prés church, a little jewel box museum with a very pleasant garden.

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
