In 1885, Antoine Bourdelle chose to live in the Montaparnasse district with tirs many artists'workshops; Jules Dalou, Eugène Carrière and Jean-Paul Laurens were his neighbours.
At the end of his Life, the then-famous Bourdelle envisaged, "as did Rodin" his prestigious forefather, à museum which could house his whole work.
Following his death in 1929, his wife Cléopâtre, his daughter Rhodia ans his son-in-law Michel Dufet ensured that this work was widely exhibited.
Thanks to the generosity of the sponsor Gabriel Cognacq, Cléopâtre Bourdelle donated the workshop and à large part of his collection to the City of Paris.
The Bourdelle Museum was inaugurated on the 4th of july 1949.
Since it was designed around the apartment and the preserved workshops, it has retained the original charm.

The Bourdelle museum is not accessible to people with reduced mobility.
Note that the museum will be closed during the summer to work for access to disabled pe
rsons.
