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.

I was bummed out because I wanted to see some of Suzanne Valadon's paintings at the contemporary museum which was undergoing renovations while we were in Paris, but instead we happened upon something even better - the Musee de Montmartre. This is a great experience...More

Le Musée de Montmartre is a cozy little museum that transmits beautifully the historical and artistic importance of Montmartre. When we left, as we strolled by the streets, we imagined Picasso, Renoir or, of course, Toulouse Lautrec walking by and hanging out in the same...More

This is not a museum of Impressionist paintings but rather a museum of the Montmartre neighborhood and the lives of the artists there. Located just a few blocks away from the crowded, tourist oriented Place du Tertre you'll find the Musee de Montmartre on a...More

A hidden jewel within the tourist trap that is Montmartre — charming. The artworks recount the history of Montmartre, once a thriving artists area. Includes lovely garden spaces to hang out in, making it particularly appealing in sunny weather.

This museum is a little gem and the garden an oasis of calm, unlike the Basilica du Sacre Coeur just a few yards away. Very interesting history of Montmatre and its annexation as part of Paris around 1880. Lovely garden with a little cafe to...More

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...More

Dear Balázs D, Thank you very much for your message. We will be happy to welcome you again at the museum. Best regards. Team Musée de Montmartre

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

This museum is open every day of the year from 10 to 6. This information is readily available on their website.
No online ticket sales. Did you get your tickets at the museum or buy them in advance? If advance purchase, from what source? We are gong in mid September. Thanks.

no need for advance purchase. very small museum... 2 hours is plenty. take the funicular down and then watch for pickpockets and scam artists (3 card monte, etc....) Area is known for tourist crimes.
How do you buy advance tickets for Musee de Montmartre? Where can you buy the tickets? Do you have to enter at a certain time when buying tickets?
