The Maison de Gainsbourg opens its doors to the public
Published on , in Paris
Awaited by fans since the death of Serge Gainsbourg in the early 90s, the opening of his house on the Rue de Verneuil to the public will finally take place on September 20th. Nestled in the elegant streets of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, the house stands out due to its graffiti tagged walls that perfectly embody the rebellious spirit of the creative dynamo. Visit it during your break at the Hôtel Le Six!
An immersion in the world of Serge Gainsbourg
Leaving the Hôtel Le Six, go down the Boulevard de Raspail and, in about twenty minutes, you’ll reach the Rue de Verneuil, where the refuge of the great singer-songwriter, actor, composer, and director awaits you. This house, which he acquired in 1969, quickly became both a place of inspiration and creation and a hub of family life. His daughter, Charlotte, has kept it just as it was when her father died in 1991. Thus, each detail and object, including books, photos, clothes and even bottles in the fridge, suggest that Serge has only briefly stepped out…
To extend the experience
While visiting the house is an emotional and informative experience, the museum located a little further along the street offers the opportunity to see numerous documents and other artifacts linked to the multi-talented creative. Manuscripts, clothes, jewellery, and photos illustrate the long and rich career of the man who so often divided public opinion. To finish your journey, don't forget to stop at the bookstore and then at the bar, just to get a little closer to the very special world of Serge Gainsbourg.
From September 20th, don't miss the opportunity for an exciting and moving visit to the Maison de Gainsbourg and its museum. Your stay at the Hôtel Le Six will give you a fascinating immersion in the 6th arrondissement and the legendary district of Saint-Germain-des-Prés!
