Musée de la Vie Romantique

This museum is particularly precious for its rose garden, a little heaven of quietness tucked away from the busy streets of Paris. The perfect place, from Spring until the end of Summer, to sip hibiscus iced-tea while reading your favorite novel or writing postcards to your friends. Home of the portraitist Ary Scheffer, this 19th-century hôtel particulier—Hôtel Scheffer-Renan—saw a lot of famous artists such as Delacroix, Géricault, George Sand, Chopin, Rossini, Dickens… It is today a museum dedicated to the works of the painter Ary Scheffer himself as well as the ones of neighbor and friend George Sand.
Free permanent collection. Temporary exhibitions from 3.30€ to 9€.
