At Gridskipper I read some nice walk . While the weather is still nice and the indian summer gives you a happy feeling just before winter comes in, have a stroll in the lesser known museum gardens in Paris. Everybody knows about the Luxembourg Garden and the Tuileries, they are nice, that’s true but maybe you’re in for something more exclusive : 

- Jardin du Musée Bourdelle, 18, Rue  Antoine Bourdelle, 75015 Paris,  dedicated to the artist Antoine Bourdelle — is located at the foot of the hideous Tour Montparnasse, and is a surprising oasis in a junky area.

- Le Musée Galliera, 10, Av. Pierre 1er De Serbie, 75116 Paris, The 19th-century Musée Galliera in front of the Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris puts on temporary exhibitions devoted to fashion. Its garden is a great spot.

-Le Musée de la Vie Romantique, 16, Rue Chaptal, 75009 Paris,  The charming garden at the Musée de la Vie Romantique is a nice place to take a break and sip a nice cup of tea.

- Musée Cognacq-Jay Garden, 8, Rue Elzévir, 75003 Paris,  A small hidden museum on a side street in the Marais, the Musée Cognacq-Jay — whose permanent collection is composed of 18th-century objects, the garden is only open for the public in summer.

- Musée Carnavalet Garden,23, Rue De Sévigné, 75003 Paris,  The Musée Carnavalet is dedicated to the history of Paris, and its landscaped courtyard garden in the heart of the Marais is a beautiful place to escape. 

- Musée du Petit Palais Garden ,Av Winston Churchill, 75008 Paris,  The interior garden of the Petit Palais, Paris’ museum dedicated to beaux-arts, was renovated in 2005. Have a drink in the cafe/restaurant under one of the palm trees.
