Musée Bourdelle

Museum in Montparnasse & Southern Paris

Monumental bronzes fill the house and workshop where sculptor Antoine Bourdelle (1861–1929), a pupil of Rodin, lived and worked. The three sculpture gardens are particularly lovely, with a flavour of belle époque and post-WWI Montparnasse. The museum usually has a temporary exhibition (adult/child €8/free) going on alongside its free permanent collection. You can rent an audioguide at reception (€5).
