A New Love in Paris: Musée de la vie romantique

May 09, 2019

Paris is famous for its big-gun museums and galleries, and rightly so. But away from the obvious touristy spots, a particular, lesser-known jewel has caught us mid-croissant – introducing the divine Musée de la vie romantique.

The Louvre, Musée d'Orsay and Centre Pompidou are all famously mobbed in the summer months, so steal yourself away from mayhem with a jaunt to the lovely Musée de la vie romantique. Allow a few hours to browse this divine ode to  Romanticism – no, not cupids and hearts silly, but the C.18th art and literary movement centred on individualism, nature and nostalgia. 

Why we've fallen for it?

This lesser-known trove of artworks and curios makes for a peaceful and thought-provoking wander. Afterwards, take tea in the shaded secret garden cafe to drink in the full aspect of this pretty shuttered manse.
