Neighbourhood of art and culture
The Hôtel d'Aubusson is located in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, in the 6th arrondissement. The neighbourhood's artistic and cultural vocation has lasted since the 17th - 18th centuries. Philosophers, the writers of the "Encyclopédie", revolutionaries, students, and many more met there and exchanged ideas, gradually turning Saint-Germain-des-Prés into a privileged meeting place for intellectuals. After the Second World War, this centre of cultural life in Paris saw artists, jazz musicians, singers, scholars, journalists, and more, take over the fashionable cafés and clubs.
This exciting atmosphere can still be seen in the neighbourhood and has forged the very special identity of the Left Bank of Paris: literary cafés, piano bars such as the Café Laurent, art galleries, publishers, antique dealers, young fashion creators have already chosen to establish themselves there. A bohemian atmosphere reigns over the narrow streets around the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, as well as the Sorbonne in the nearby Latin Quarter.
Things to see and do in the neighbourhood:
- The Delacroix Museum: it occupies the apartment and studio where the painter lived from 1857 to 1863 and organises exhibitions around the artist's work.
- The Maillol Museum: discover the sculptor's work. Thematic exhibitions are also organised here.
- The Rodin Museum: sculptures, sketches and other masterpieces offer you the chance to discover the artist. An exceptional collection which, in particular, includes The Gates of Hell and The Thinker.
- The Cluny Museum: a short walk from the Sorbonne, this museum houses one of the largest collections of medieval art in the world.
- Luxembourg Gardens: treat yourself to a relaxing break between the fountains and flowerbeds. The gardens regularly play host to exhibitions, in particular photographic exhibitions, presented on the railings which surround them.
- The Odéon Theatre
- The churches of Saint-Sulpice and Saint-Germain-des-Prés

BEYOND STARS. The Mystical Landscape from Monet to Kandinsky Until June 25th 2017
Connecting with an order beyond physical appearances, going deeper than material realities to come closer to the mysteries of existence, experimenting with losing oneself in perfect unity with the cosmos: these quests are all characteristic of mysticism, the spiritual phenomenon that exists alongside all religions, in all continents.
