Always admiring the detailed tiny brushstrokes of Pissaro, but who knew of his life, his extensive periods, what a talent! The exhibit was well appointed and explained his different life phases along with the related artworks.

nice exhibition for those who like Pissaro. though the museum is small so can be overcrowded quite quickly. it is easy to find by the Luxembourg gardens tickets can be bought in advance if you don't want to queue for a ticket

What a wonderful exhibit of everyday life! I learned so much about Pissarro's work and family life. Afterwards, you can enjoy the Luxembourg Gardens and have tea sandwiches, coffee and dessert at Angelinas... all in the same location.

This showing of Carmine Pissarro's works and life in Normandy made us appreciate his talent and accomplishments. When his works are buried among the many other great impressionists, he disappears. Alone you see the wow factor. The many Pissarro oils exhibited here made me want...More

Pissaro exhibition is the best, most interesting collection of his works that I have seen. Well set out, with a story to tell about the development of his style, it is even better than at Marmottan. The fantastic bonus is that, with the exception of...More

This is one of the best single artist exhibits I've seen. Everyone in the museum seemed just so happy and blissed out by the paintings. Don't miss it!

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented

We bought the tickets on line via the website and didn't encounter any problems, we noted on the day that the queue was short so buying in advance may not be absolutely necessary.
