Description

The Musée de la Vie Romantique is located in the house of the painter Ary Scheffer, built in 1830. Situated in Pigalle, in La Nouvelle Athènes, the museum recreates a harmonious historical setting evoking the romantic period. The ground floor is devoted to George Sand: portraits, furniture, and jewellery from the 18th and 19th centuries. On the first floor, Ary Scheffer's paintings are surrounded by contemporary works. Two annual temporary exhibitions are organized as well as concerts, readings and activities for children. In the museum's garden, the tearoom Rose Bakery, a real haven of peace, is a great place for a tasty snack.
