We step in Bourdelle Museum by chance. Although it is not one of the top museums in Paris, we found this little museum full of charm and amazing art works. We were lucky and arrived at the time when a guided tour started. The guide was so passionate with his narratives and stories, we loved it! It's a very local... More

I discovered this little museum and found it extremely interesting and pleasant, especially the wide range of rather big statues exhibited in the lovely little gardens. It is a very peaceful place full of atmosphere, undoubtedly because Bourdelle had his studio and an apartment there which can be visited. The entrance to the museum is free.

This museum was a good find, not far from Gare Montparnasse. It is free to visit. There are many fantastic sculptures to see. There is a garden with sculptures as well as halls and rooms with sculptures. I particularly enjoyed seeing the artist's studio. I bought a book of his work as a souvenir.

Bourdelle was a pupil of Auguste Rodin, so it is fitting that this museum has a feel similar to Musee Rodin, with the artist's works being pleasingly displayed indoors & in garden settings. "Hercules the Archer" is the sculptor's best known piece. "The Dying Centaur" leaves one feeling uncomfortable.

Not particularly impressive unless one is specifically interested in the works of Antoine Boudelle. Most visitors to Paris are limited in time, so unless you just happen to be nearby. not a big miss. The museum is free, although the reception would have you believe otherwise for a minimum donation.

As a fan of Rodin, this museum was obviously a must-see. It's absolutely gorgeous. The gardens are absolutely lovely and the studio etc are just lovely and feel very intimate. A very quiet museum even on Saturday - do not miss out as the scale of the sculptures are astounding!
