We enjoyed the Rubens exhibit. Learned a lot about his life and his painting of many royal families. We felt that it was a little highly priced. It took us less than an hour to see the entire exhibit. The museum only features one special...More

Great exhibition on (Rubens' political portraits) beautifully presented. Really friendly staff and reasonably priced. The Angelina café outside has the thickest hot chocolate I have ever tasted! A really refuge on a wet New Year's Day (thank you MdL for being open!)

Rubens is often derided for "corpulent women" and "preening princes"--as the curators of this exhibition are agile in admitting. But he's much more interesting than that--and indeed I prefer his landscapes, not on show here. The princely portraits are enormous, and the information presented here...More

My wife wanted to see the Rubens exhibit. It was a fairly easy walk from our hotel on the Rue du Rivoli and easily accessible at the entrance to Luxembourg Gardens. The art was obviously amazing but the museum - being small was very packed....More

This exhibition is on from 04/10/2017 until 14/01/2018 and it is really worth visiting if in Paris during this period. Rubens does not need explanations but admiration. A must for all art lovers of Rubens' portraits of the Europen Royal families all connected by blood!

I went there for an exhibit on Pissarro. Surprisingly, it wasn’t too crowded. If you haven’t pre-purchased your ticket, then you have to wait in line until you can get in. I waited only 5 mn which wasn’t bad at all. The exhibit was nicely...More

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
