Housed in a 19th century mansion, the museum is dedicated to the work of the painter Jean-Jacques Henner (1829-1905). Its collections tell the story of Henner’s life, from the early days in his native Alsace to his stay at the Villa Medici after his Prix de Rome and finally to Paris where he was a successful painter and one of the most important of his time. The many works from Henner’s studio provide insight into how a successful painter would work during the Impressionist period.


The museum welcomes groups and external tour guide every day except Tuesdays, under the following conditions:

« Singing/Musical fragments/Requiem 
Three legends mirrored by paintings »

To listen to the three programmes one after the other, there are three possible times: 14h, 14h45 and 15h45.

Looking back on two years of renovations:
2016 will be remember as an important milestone in the history of the museum.
Marie-Cécile Forest, director of the Jean-Jacques Henner Museum
