Initially housed in the Palais du Luxembourg, Musee du Luxembourg was the first French art museum to be opened to the public--in 1750. As one of the leading exhibit spaces in Paris, it houses the masterpieces of Botticelli, Raphaël, Titian, Arcimboldo, Veronese, Gauguin, Matisse, Vlaminck, Modigliani, and Lucas Cranach. Much of the work first shown here has found its way into other museums of Paris, including the Jeu de Paume, the Orangerie, and ultimately the Musée National d'Art Moderne and the Musée d'Orsay.

Very good and professional staff makes this museum a special. All i saw was amazing and very good.
