The Museum of Romantic Life: A small piece of paradise where time stands still

This is a beautiful and timeless location away from hectic Parisian life, a little corner of paradise that few tourists visit just a 10 minute walk from the Relais Monmartre.


This museum is located on Rue Chaptal in the lower part of Pigalle, which was given the name "New Athens" during the first part of the 19th century and where a community of prestigious artists belonging to the Romanticism movement was formed.

Sitting at the end of a delightful paved driveway bordered by tall trees is the Scheffer-Renan Hotel and a garden that is replete with roses in the summer months. The house which is home to the museum is in an Italian style and seems to have been preserved by time.

Choose a beautiful sunny day for this visit that will hopefully leave you with very romantic memories.

This town house, built in 1830, was the home of the Dutch painter Ary Scheffer. He played host here to luminaries such as Chopin and George Sand, Gounod, Dickens, Stravinsky, Ernest Renand, Delacroix, Rossini and Turgenev, and the house was a true source of inspiration for Romanticism in Paris.

The ground floor houses a collection of paintings, drawings, sculptures, furniture, jewellery and objects from the Nohant estate where George Sand lived. The writer paid regular visits to her neighbour Ary Scheffer. 

The ground-floor living room has been restored in the style of the Nohant estate belonging to George Sand
To be here is to be truly immersed in the private world of the author, who seems to express herself so well here. We then come to the "Little blue room" where we find, among other things, some of George Sand's watercolours that she called "dendrites". The novelist became fascinated by watercolour towards the end of her life.

On the 2nd floor we find works by the painter Ary Scheffer and some of his contemporaries, such as the philosopher Ernest Renan, who is represented by part of the library.

It is time spent in the garden that will leave you with particularly fond memories of this gentle and tranquil spot. Tea, drinks, savoury and sweet tarts and salads are available at reasonable prices to convince you to extend your stay in this timeless place.

These places where time stands still are few and far between in Paris - you can't afford to pass up the opportunity to visit.

Enjoy your visit!
