Musée de Montmartre, Paris

4.4
#24 of 148 in Museums in Paris
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. A visit to Musée de Montmartre represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Paris trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Do not forget that MONTMARTRE has often provided the framework for french filmmakers and international we remember Amélie Poulain of course, but there are others: "Moulin Rouge", "French Cancan" of Jean Renoir, "The gates of night" of meat "Boulevard" by Julien Duvivier with Jean-Pierre Léaud, young, which reminds us of the Antoine Doinel of Truffaut that he too much turned in the eighteenth arrondissement... All this reminded us nicely to the Museum of Montmartre: excerpts from films, posters, photos, a dress of Leslie Caron for "Gigi"... the expo is rich in documents and its scenography is very nice.

  • The Museum is located in the historic mansion of 17 century "Rozimon", which was built for actor Claude Rose (whose nickname de Rozimon). In the Museum, four permanent expositions: the story of Montmartre, the period of the Paris Commune, the exhibition "Gala Montmartre" and "Bohemia of Montmartre". While still undergoing temporary exhibitions. If you like this area and you are imbued with his spirit, then this museum is for you. Adult tickets cost EUR 9.50, children up to 10 years free of charge. Open daily until 18.00, closed on Monday.

  • My 8 year old son and I escaped our hot apartment nearby and came here one afternoon in June 2017. I saw lithographs I'd examined in high school art, and seeing them in the place the artists lived was...  more »

  • Lovely experience! The story of Suzanne Valadon gives a good impression of what Montmartre must have been back then. The movies exhibition was also quite interesting. Best part about it are the gardens though. Since Montmartre is very crowded it is very relaxing to be able to sit on the grass in a quiet environment immediately nearby!
  • What a great surprise this was! We went because we read about a exposition they were having and so we stop by just to see that and not expecting much else.. But were very happy to find that the museum itself it well run and exceptionally set up. Very informative about the history of the area and all the colorful people that make/made it up.
  • The museum is nice, but when I visited it an important part was closed due to a private event: the gardens. No one warned me about this (there was only a sign among other signs that I did not see). When I inquire about this they said the garden was not a part of the exhibition (even though it is clearly featured as such on the outside) the guy I talked to was rude and did not care at all about my complaint. I left the museum with a bitter taste u wished I had gone another day to visit the gardens, but these people seem to think that this kind of info is not relevant for a foreigner that may not come again to Paris. A real shame.
  • A nice small museum, its collection is valuable to the local area, but not of international importance. There is a cafe and a toilet.
  • So big, can spend days here! Go there with a painting in mind and try to find it on your own!

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
