Musee National Jean-Jacques Henner Reviews
We bought a joint ticket for Musee Gustav Moreau ( excellent by the way) and Musee Jean-Jacques Henner. Painters with very different styles. The Musee jean-Jacques Henner is very small but worthwhile.... more »
This is one of the lesser-known museums in Paris. The art of Jean-Jacques Henner is unique. Amazingly, we had the whole museum to ourselves and very much enjoyed our time discovering this... more »
Quiet and not too crowded museum. The venue is more interesting than the paintings themselves. But it is my personal opinion. This workshop-type house has French ceiling and old wooden staircases which create a home-like atmosphere. A peculiar spot in Paris.
Beautiful building, free for under 26, feels like being in the home of this not so famous yet very talented painter! If you are tired of mai stream museums in Paris try swinging by this one!
