The Tintoretto exhibition was just lovely. It was crowded and yet did not feel cramped. It is beautifully presented. We were very impressed.

Beautifully staged exhibition, each section building a narrative of the artist's development. Plenty of information, both in sheets (in many different languages), and on the walls. Whether Tintoretto was 'the genius' billed in the exhibition's title is another matter... Plenty of material to inform one's...More

The Musee du Luxembourg does a great job of putting on temporary exhibitions. They're always top quality, and worth the visit.

We enjoyed the Rubens exhibit. Learned a lot about his life and his painting of many royal families. We felt that it was a little highly priced. It took us less than an hour to see the entire exhibit. The museum only features one special...More

Great exhibition on (Rubens' political portraits) beautifully presented. Really friendly staff and reasonably priced. The Angelina café outside has the thickest hot chocolate I have ever tasted! A really refuge on a wet New Year's Day (thank you MdL for being open!)

Rubens is often derided for "corpulent women" and "preening princes"--as the curators of this exhibition are agile in admitting. But he's much more interesting than that--and indeed I prefer his landscapes, not on show here. The princely portraits are enormous, and the information presented here...More

We bought the tickets on line via the website and didn't encounter any problems, we noted on the day that the queue was short so buying in advance may not be absolutely necessary.
