My wife, our 6-year old boy, and I all enjoyed an evening visit to this little and little known, but very worthwhile, museum. We went on a cool breezy evening and the gardens were truly enjoyable, with the monumental sculptures which one normally does not get to see up close. Bourdelle is an artist with a tremendous sense of force.

During our recent stay in Paris, my partner and I went to see the exhibition "Balenciaga: L’Oeuvre au Noir” at the Musée Bourdelle and we were left enchanted! The Musée Bourdelle is situated in a quiet street near the Montparnasse tower and it was home and studio to Antoine Bourdelle who was a prolific sculptor follower of Rodin. The place... More

Nice little museum in Paris. Although the artist's work didn't caught me, the temporary Balcenciaga dress exhibit is worth a visit

I went during the Balenciaga exposition, but I gotta say this museum is really good!! If you are under 18 years old, it's free.

This small museum is a manageable size and in a lovely building. The exhibit I went for was very well done. This and the other Paris-city museums are great additions to a morning or afternoon, because they are all over the place, and small enough to do in a short period of time.

If you like Bordelle, this museum is a must. Otherwise be prepared for large-scale sculptures and a thorough life history. Set in a charming neighborhood. Off the beaten Path.

This quiet museum in Montparnasse had been on my list of places to visit for some time. It's easy to reach by metro and well signposted. Bourdelle was an illustrator, painter and sculpture who, at one stage, worked alongside Rodin. The museum is set in and around his former studios and garden. It is low key but well worth a... More

Paris abounds in artist's ateliers, however this has got to be one of the most amazing. How did I never hear of this exciting museum before? This place has it all: you will exit with a complete appreciation of Bourdelle and his processes. There are many different parts to visit, both indoors and out. Don't miss any of them. And... More
