Musee du Luxembourg, Paris

3.9
#36 of 185 in Museums in Paris
Initially housed in the Palais du Luxembourg, Musee du Luxembourg was the first French art museum to be opened to the public--in 1750. As one of the leading exhibit spaces in Paris, it houses the masterpieces of Botticelli, Raphaël, Titian, Arcimboldo, Veronese, Gauguin, Matisse, Vlaminck, Modigliani, and Lucas Cranach. Much of the work first shown here has found its way into other museums of Paris, including the Jeu de Paume, the Orangerie, and ultimately the Musée National d'Art Moderne and the Musée d'Orsay.

  • I highly recommend the guide of the Musée du Luxembourg, Fabrice Callet, very pedagogue and sympathetic, who made us discover this Wednesday, March 20, 2019 many facets of the painters Nabis. Thanks to him, Bonnard, Vuillard, Denis, Sérusier, Vallotton, Roussel and a few others have (almost) no more secrets for us.

  • Very good and professional staff makes this museum a special. All i saw was amazing and very good. Very useful place of this museum give you possibility very fast visit it on your way to job or to home. All persons of staff very kind and available for requests personally. I recommend this museum for really interesting resting.
  • The rooms are small, so try to go when there's not a lot of people for maximum enjoyment :) Right next to the gardens for a nice walk afterwards. If coming for an art exposition, get your ticket online for less waiting time ! Enjoy :)
