The Musée de la Vie Romantique or The Museum of Romantic Life, stands at the foot of Montmartre Hill in the IXe arrondissement, 16 rue Chaptal, Paris, France. It’s a small museum hidden in a quartier called Nouvelle Athènes famous for all the romantic writers, musicians, actors and painters that formed the elite of the Romantic mouvement in the 19 century.
George Sand and Frederick Chopin used to visit Ary Scheffer, one of the prominent artists of the time and owner of the house.
When I looked at the entrance I didn’t expect to find at the back, a paved courtyard of an 1830 hôtel particulier facing two twin-studios, a greenhouse, and a small garden with a nice coffee shop.
It is a lovely place to visit and take pictures. I chose the Fisheye Camera and a redscale film (ISO 100) for my first visit and I had good fun experimenting with light and different points of view.
If you’re looking for a quiet afternoon in Paris, away from the crowd of tourists in Montmartre, this is the place to go!
