In the oldest house on the hill of Montmartre lived fourteen personalities, among whom Renoir, Valadon, Dufy and Poulbot. Take a step back in time to the glory days of this independent and bohemian quarter through original works by Utrillo, Toulouse-Lautrec and Willette at the Montmartre Museum. The gardens and the atmosphere have a rustic feel to them, making this is a very special site in the heart of Paris.

Stopped in on our way through Montmartre. The museum has so many different areas and rooms. I love that the apartments were turned into a museum, rather than having a special museum built. It was amazing to see Renoir's gardens. There is also an area dedicated to Montmartre in film; the Amelie section was great!

A must visit when walking on the cobbled streets of Montmarte! Don't miss it! A real gem of information, the presentation is thought as a real life experience with quotes from the people who lived there and background music to create the atmosphere form the times past. The recorded tour is included in the admission fee and you have to... More

My friends and I were surprised by the creativity of the exhibits at this museum. There are many short videos, mostly from commercial films, that are in some way related to the area. The expositions are in two buildings and are quite extensive as they continue over three floors each. There isn't much art. Or at least there isn't much... More

I love Montmartre and have been there several times, this is the first time I learned about the Musee de Montmartre from our B&B host. Its a delightful place, and brings history alive of the time when artists lived and worked in this area. The gardens and art exhibits are very nice, the little museum with a historical movie was...

This was an ad hoc stop on a quiet morning stroll which surprised me pleasantly. For me the highlights of the visit were the fabulous gardens Jardins Renoir and the ateliers Valadon- Utrillo with the interesting history. Not as crowded as the more favorite must-see museums.

Set in an historic artists' home on the "back" side of Montmartre, this little museum tells the story of Montmartre's past. It is located on a quiet hillside to the northwest of Sacre-Coeur, surrounded by charming gardens (including a small vineyard!) Although I wouldn't consider it one of the "must see" sights for the first-time visitor to Paris, it is... More

It's a bit out of the way, but worth the effort. It tells the story of artist associated with the Montmartre. Area focusing on the life of Suzanne Valadon. The Renoir garden is a pleasure to hang out in. There is a misleading Trip Advisor report, A must visit for Monet lovers. It reports one of the latest Monet collections.... More

This is an interestingly laid out museum in Montmartre. It occupies several houses. Part of it is a tribute to the artists who made this part of Paris famous, and there are are numerous paintings on display by painters who lived and worked in the area ( including some who actually lived in houses in which the museum is housed)....

The Montmartre museum is located in a series of interconnected houses overlooking a garden and vineyard; even in January the location is memorable. I visited here during my second day in town, wanting an overview of the area before setting off to explore individual sites. Admission is a very reasonable eleven Euros. The tour starts with a five minute introductory... More

Staying in Montmartre

Neighbourhood Profile
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
