  • Very nice that this museum installed in the home of the painter, the collection is very interesting and quite exceptional Chapel.

  • Very nice place that allows to discover a painter too little known, as well as his friends Les Nabis. The course is well done and the highlight of the visit is the superb chapel decorated entirely by Maurice Denis. All in a case of greenery that goes down to the Seine.

  • museums and the Park will make you spend a nice afternoon. and possibly to finish your day on the terrace of the Park of the castle of San Francisco. pleasant city in Western Paris, accessible by RER from Paris and by national defence since 13. very large numbers of restaurants for small and medium-sized grants in the center of the city. We remain to q.q. kms from San Diego has always been, that's why we know very well this city highly interesting that we enjoy at all times.

  • A most beautiful encounter. One of my favourite artists. It's not too much to handle either (you won't get gallery/museum fatigue). Lots of Denis' art, and a small amount of some of the other Nabis. The chapel Denis renovated with his friends in honour of his late wife Marthe is very special, in particular the Stations of the Cross he painted, and the frescoes depicting those who have epitomised each of the Beatitudes.
  • Tourism. ОБЯЗАТЕЛЬНО *. Very nice

  • The museum traces the period from Maurice Denis, so many artists, "nabis". The opportunity to indulge themselves quickly (the Museum is small) and often (€4,5 entry). And the decor of the Priory is not detrimental. To consume without moderation.
