  • The Museum was visited in the middle of the street from the Montmartre Museum, is a very nice atmosphere. I also was interested in painting and be drawn into the atmosphere. You can feel the world if it goes because it is like a usual residence Museum accidentally likely to overlook is it seems.

  • I love museums non-cliche. It's been a while since I avoid the massive crowd of Louvre, going pry places that flourished outside the common places of interest, the type have to. I love the work of Gustave Moreau for a long time, this Symbolist once impressionists, which is keen to continue painting the way you believe, against the current of the schools. I was there in July this year, in the lovely rue de la Rochefoucauld, à côté rue Tour des Dames. That beautiful! A museum installed in the House of the artist who does not defenestrou the House of the artist, but added to it. Don't miss the period ambience, the objects, the japonnaséries and the chinnoiséries, the pictures, the furniture. Fascination with the spiral staircase that leads from the domestic environment to the museum itself, where you can see the wonderful work of this unknown artist and deep, which announced the Surrealism and knows how to be deeper than this. The Paris non-cliché expects flanêur's soul in the Gustave Moreau Museum.

  • What an honor to visit the homes of this powerful painter, what joy to admire his works so strong! But what a pity that no preservation or beautification effort be made: the Museum lights are terribly poor, some paintings are not even visible as a result of the reflections of the Sun and the contrejours, others went off in the shade; and carved wood frames, heavy old dust, are sadly tarnished. This place does not respect Gustave Moreau, neither his work nor his audience. What desolation...

  • A very interesting, inspiring museum devoted to a single artist. The house itself is of interest - the upper floors devoted to the studio space are well-lit and magnificent, but the lower floors are darker and art is not well-lit.
  • Reasonable entry, fantastic display upstairs of semi-finished works. So quiet on a Saturday too!
  • Super unfriendly staff! They make you feel like you're a terrorist only by visiting with your backpack. They keep speaking very fast in french to foreigners, so you can barely understand. I always wanted to visit the museum but I left after being treated so bad.
  • Must love Moreau. Hot and no ventilation.
  • If you love Moreau's paintings, you must visit this place.

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.
