Musee de Montmartre, Paris

4.4
#24 of 142 in Museums in Paris
Musee 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 Musee de Montmartre represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Paris trip planner to plot your vacation.

  • Beautiful old house restored into a museum that brings Montmartre's artists of old to life. There are a few studios, made up as they would have been at the time. The audio tour is decent, but I preferred to just look at the paintings, despite not being able to read the signs with them (I don't speak French). You're not allowed to bring backpacks in but they have a drawer at the desk that I believe is free.
  • I happened upon this place after researching the area. My favorite museum I have visited during my whole trip!! Everyone should visit this hub of artistry
  • Have to say one of the best museums I've ever been in. Gallery style plus immersive, don't worry at the slow start, stay with the full experience, take your time and you won't be disappointed.
  • Wife dragged me here, SO glad really enjoyed it very informative lernt a lot of local history and what a great setting staff always there to help and answer questions ! Highly recommend it great place to visit
  • I would definitely recommend stopping by this museum if you are in Montmartre! I enjoyed learning more about the history of the area and walking around the grounds. I went during an exposition on Montmartre in cinema which I really loved. The exposition will be going on until 14 Jan 2018. I went in mid Nov so the garden wasn't as lush but there was no crowd.
