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

Beautiful, very well done Museum, with a focused in depth single artist exhibit. After you have done the large museums, this lovely. And Angelina Cafe out front is charming.

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

This museum is now closed for renovation till September 14. I had this planned for the end of the day for my tour of Monparnasse. A long wander in the Jardin de Luxumberg eased my disappointment. If you check the museum's website, you need to look closely for this rather important bit of information. Enjoy your visit in September. I... More

My wife and I had never been to the Musée du Luxembourg until recently when we saw the “Masterpieces from Budapest” exhibition. When we entered the museum, we were each given a brochure with a simple map laying out the type of art displayed in each of eight rooms of the exhibition. Other reviewers have complained that the museum is... More

The current Budapest exhibition is overpriced. Budapest galleries have lent this museum only a small number of artworks, but this museum charges visitors 12 euros for this exhibition. The Louvre is only 3 euros more expensive but has many more exhibits to see. If you are on a tight budget, you'd better skip this exhibition. Those artworks themselves are of... More

Went for the temporary exhibition of the Chefs d'oeuvres of Budapest. The paintings were very well disposed and lit. The information was quite self explanatory on the history and the painting. Shop with enough publications on the event. 90 minutes were enough to see the exhibition.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
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.
