Musée Eugène Delacroix

A delightful little museum in the former apartment of French Romantic artist Delacroix, who lived here until his death in 1863. An additional bonus is the beautiful Place Furstenberg – one of the most romantic squares in Paris and famous for its Paulownia trees and handsome buildings.
