Musée de Montmartre, Paris
Categories: History Museums, Museums
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 Musée de Montmartre on your trip to Paris, use our Paris trip builder.

Lovely and quiet while being very informative. Great to get an impression of what it was like to be an avant guarde artist. Very interesting history of the monmartre area too.
I planned to visit this museum but I had no idea it is so good and much bigger than I expected. To visit the whole of it, have coffee in the museum cafe, have a rest in its beautiful garden and do the shopping in the museum store you will need at least half of a day. But it will be great time for sure especially if you are an art lover.
What a great surprise. Make sure to take time to visit this place and spend a few hours. It was not busy and have a lot of great stories to tell about the place.
9.50 for a smallish museum, small garden. Only for Renoir fans
We went there especially because we wanted to visit the gardens, but they were closed and the lady at the receptions didn't mind letting us know before paying the ticket. When we asked for explanations she behaved very rudely and told us she was not there to give information. We wasted our time and money!
