  • Even if this museum is small, it contains splendours for those who know how to stop there. The reduced collection invites you to contemplate the works of Delacroix. Of course, we may regret that there are not more paintings but the strolls in the garden (in which there is a trunk full of authors who influenced Delacroix) are worth the visit.

  • sorry for the lovely staff and the décor in a beautiful setting, but I don't understand the term museum! there is nothing to see 3 tiny rooms, a workshop and a garden! what paintings... nothing transcendent especially for the price 7 euros.it could be free for so little! my advice if you are in the neighborhood, go to the Furstenberg square entering the courtyard of the museum, you will have the atmosphere of the place and continue your way!

  • Very good museum but it is very small. It shouldn’t take you more than an hour and a half to do it. Pretty garden
  • Small but comfortable and the yard is beautiful. Would be a nice choice to spend your afternoon here.
