Devoted to the artists, writers, and composers of the Romantic period, Musee de la Vie Romantique was the Paris base of Dutch-born painter Ary Scheffer (1795–1858). For decades, Scheffer and his daughter hosted Friday evening salons, attracting the likes of George Sand, Frederic Chopin, Eugène Delacroix, Franz Liszt, Gioacchino Rossini, and singer Pauline Viardot. Later in the century, Charles Dickens, Ivan Turgueniev, and Charles Gounod attended regularly. The museum displays numerous mementos of these luminaries, as well as Romantic-era paintings, sculptures, and objets d'art.

  • Nice little free museum to kill some time while waiting for our Eurostar. The little coffee shop in the courtyard seemed nice. Only really saw one piece of art I liked but people may enjoy more.
  • Very small, and free museum. I went in September and the garden felt serene. I could have spent my whole afternoon sitting there enjoying the plants and doing nothing.
