Museum of Romantic Life (Musee de la Vie romantique)
The building that is now home to this museum originally belonged to painter Ary Scheffer (1795-1858) and his nephew, the writer Ernest Renan. After their deaths, the place became a celebration of their lives and their circle of intellectual friends, which included Chopin, Delacroix and George Sand. The museum's main room (devoted entirely to Sand) exhibits a selection of the novelist's personal belongings, including a collection of watercolors, lockets and jewelry. Temporary exhibitions on 19th-century artistic and literary life are organized on a regular basis in Ary Scheffers studio.

The courtyard is peaceful and beautiful with a stunning array of plants of flowers, in the midst of which coffee can be enjoyed. The museum is a fascinating insight into the lives and love of George Sand and Chopin and the exhibited paintings are well worth viewing. Overall, a lovely place in which to relax for a few hours in an otherwise busy city.
