Musée Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Montmorency | History
€2.6 - €5.1
The Jean-Jacques Rousseau museum is located in Montmorency, in the Val-d'Oise, France. It is set in the small house where the Mont-Louis Jean-Jacques Rousseau lived from 1756-1762.

Jean-Jacques Rousseau fled Paris, "city of noise, smoke and mud," to find a place close to nature. Thanks to Madame d'Epinay, he moved April 9, 1756 at the Hermitage of Montmorency, then shuffling with his hostess must move elsewhere: Jacques-Joseph Mathas, tax attorney in the same locality the property of Mount suggests -Louis, a small rural house in poor condition but modest rent. Rousseau and Thérèse Levasseur settle 15 December 1757. He is in his garden a good place to develop his "system" philosophy, particularly in his "dungeon" gazebo in the garden he made his firm work to write the prying eyes of the two occupants of the "House of Wives."
