This small and intriguingly tucked away museum, is situated in the Luxembourg Gardens and it is advisable to buy your ticket online before venturing there, as you will be asked to join a queue, huddled together outside in the snow, and freezing cold, for up to 20 minutes before being allowed to enter the building. Once inside, you will soon... More

The Museum is located in the Luxembourg Garden. It's surprising because is mostly dedicated to new expositions. Usually there are few tourists and mostly local people, once the tourists prefer the most famous and big museums like Louvre, L'Orangerie and D'Orsay. Nice place with good space and just beside the Garden.

Visited here with friends and found this to to be a very good exhibition with a great collection of Henri Fantin-Latours especially the pictures that you would never see from all over United States. Exhibition is well organised and is not very crowded. Covers all of Fantin-Latours life from his great history paintings to his lovely still lifes. Would really... More

not often one can see an exhibition dedicated to Fantin-Latour.as we used to live near Grenoble, where the artist originated from, it made our visit more interesting.the gallery was not too busy so one could spend time walking around.

I highly recommend the exhibition on Henri Fantin-Latour which will go on until 12 February 2017. It features many impressive works by the great artist. I went in a Friday evening when the museum closed at 21:30. There weren't many people (much less people than in the 2 current exhibitions in the Grand Palais). Therefore, it's really pleasant to walk... More

It's true there was a wait, but I figured that it was because the exhibit on Henri Fantin-Latour had begun only a few days before. Once inside, however, I found the staff polite, the entrance procedures straightforward, and the galleries comfortable. If there is are any objections to be voiced, they would be that the text introducing the art did... More

As usual the Luxembourg Museum keeps charming us with its good themes and choice of perfect exhibitions. This time, with Fantin Latour, we are among family, friends, still nature and a world of dreams. We are marvelled with his colorful paintings mainly of still nature( we could nearly smell the fragrance of its fruits and flowers). The groups of friends... More

How could we have known that we would have the chance to see masterpieces from the Budapest National Museum of Fine Arts right across our hotel? This small museum is worth every euro of its entrance ticket. Unlike the Louvre or the d'Orsay, not too many tourists know of this museum. I guess those who were there were mostly locals,... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
