American history buffs and New Yorkers should stop here to pay homage to Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi, sculptor of the Statue of Liberty. This museum is located in the house where he was born in 1834. The display focuses on his masterpieces, especially the Statue of Liberty, with scale models, plans, and documents linked to its construction. A reconstruction of Bartholdi’s Paris apartment, with furniture and memorabilia, gives insight into the artist’s life and inspirations. Also of note are rooms dedicated to paintings of Egypt that Bartholdi amassed during his travels in 1856 and another with a fine collection of Jewish art.
