Musée de la Vie Romantique

A while ago I made a quick stop at the Musée de la Vie Romantique16 rue Chaptal, 75009. I am not sure why, but I expected it to be a museum of romance in the modern sense of the word. What I found was a museum that was dedicated to the 19th century era of French Romanticism. The main floor is filled with a variety of mementos of George Sand, a writer and leader of the Romantic movement, while the upper floor contains a number of paintings and sculptures from that time period.

Although I did enjoy the museum, the picturesque garden with a teahouse was the most appealing part of the visit for me. It was a perfect spot to enjoy a drink away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

P.S. The teahouse is open from March to October and the museum is free of charge for all permanent collections.
