Eugène Delacroix (1798-1863) was a fascinating man, a great painter, and a typically intellectual French hero. Baudelaire called him "a volcanic crater artistically concealed beneath bouquets of flowers." He came to epitomise the French aesthetic of romanticism and to embody this important artistic movement.

Dedicated to his life and work, the Musée National Delacroix is situated in a lovely square on The Left Bank. Delacroix moved here in 1857 to be close to Eglise St-Sulpice in which he was painting at the time.

Much of his early work is housed here including a number of small oil paintings, pastels, sketches, and lithographs.

The Musée National Delacroix also houses much of Delacroix’s personal belongings including memorabilia from his trips abroad and letters to and from his contemporaries. It is quite fascinating to wander among his work and living quarters and to get more of an idea of how he lived.

The Musée National Delacroix is a lovely exploration of this great painter’s life and death, of his brilliant work, and workspace. The Paris Pass allows you access to this great museum.

The best idea ever! No line ups, subway passes, museum passes! Having the Paris pass was a terrific! We weren't familiar with Paris and by having the 2 day hop on, hop off pass, it enabled us to get the lay of the land first! The subway pass was terrific as you go can anywhere! We took a beautiful river boat cruise down the Seine! The best part of the pass was getting into all of the museums without lining up!! The line ups were really long and it was really hot, so walking to the front and just going in paid off royally!!

Made Paris fun and easy to navigate!! With only 4 days to spend in Paris, the Paris Pass was awesome. It really cut down on wasted time trying to navigate from one experience to the next. I think we were able to see much more with the Paris Pass. The Hop On Hop Off bus is a terrific idea as well.
