Best Small Museums in Paris



Description:

You could spend years of your life at the Louvre and never see everything their collection houses or you could beat back the crowds and stand in line for an hour at the ever popular Musée d'Orsay, but though these museums are certainly worth the visit, it is also worthwile to spend two or three days and hit these eight smaller museums which make most lists of the best smaller museums in Paris. The museum de Maillol is world renknowned and housed in an 18th Century house. The collection here was donated by Dina Vierny, Maillol's muse and popular artist's model of her time. If you lean towards sculpture, try the Musée Rodin situated not far from Invalides which houses a host of Rodin sculptures and his own personal art collection. For real Parisian charm make it point to see the Musée de la Vie Romantique where one part of the main exhibtion which tells the story of Geoges Sand and her many lovers including Frédéric Chopin is always free -- use the money that you save and spend a few euros in the charming garden cafe after.
