Le Musée de Montmartre, Paris

(500+ reviews on the web)
History Museum Museum
Le Musée de Montmartre occupies two historical buildings, the Hotel Demarne and the Maison du Bel Air, and is home to the works of many famous artists and writers, such as Renoir. The painter created his great works "La Balançoire" and "Le Bal du Moulin de la Galette" here in 1876. As you explore, you can relive the "boheme artistique" of Montmartre, the spirit of its celebrated cabarets, and the important history of the mount itself. Outside, a charming garden has been renovated to resemble Renoir's paintings for a bit of living art. To visit Le Musée de Montmartre on your trip to Paris, use our Paris trip builder.

  • If you are interested in the arts community in Paris during the late 19th and early 20th century, you will love this. It is full of history, artifacts and art. For me, it was enough that Auguste Renoir lived and worked there but there is so much more. My only criticism is that the rooms are very small so it can get pretty crowded. You will like it best if you go early or off season. They also have a great little cafe.
  • The art isn't very interesting bit the pictures taken of the painters ams their time on montmarte are worth going. The gardens are also very nice but tends to get crowded. Price is 9€ and there is also a cafe in the garden.
  • such a quaint neighbourhood and an equally charming museum. Definitely worth a visit!
  • Relaxed atmosphere. Interesting collection
  • A gem in the heart of Montmartre. Charming with beautiful exhibitions, lovely gardens. A heaven of a museum
