  • First visit Nov 2019. This is a small museum with a small collection of mostly lesser works by the famed French artist. Given all the spectacular options in Paris this one shouldn't be at the top...

  • Small museum and safe space to be calm in the middle of huge Paris. It’s a small museum that has a garden in the back that it’s so peaceful that it’s so cool just to go to relax a while. It has some paintings of Eugène Delacroix and they’re so cool! It’s a museum like part of the Louvre, so for under 26 it’s free! Don’t forget to see the studio in the back! ☺️
  • Small museum, free with Louvre ticket. Nice to visit what was his studio for the last part of his life. In a great neighborhood.
