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.

A small museum by Parisan standards. Quantity does not always mean quality and this museum proves it. Worth your time. The back garden is a real treat, you can see why the great painters flocked to this hilltop. Nice small gift shop.

After you've toured the square, take a 5 minute walk down the side street to visit this charming museum. Not too much art, but an interesting studio of the artist mother of Utrillo.

the museum reflects the atmosphere of the Montmartre area with his night clubs and night life with all the girls dancing, flirting and more. The Can Can Music sounds everywhere. Especially interesting: the life and work of Suzanne Valadin (1865-1938). She was born in this...More

We attended a garden party at Montmartre. The place was beautiful. We toured the grounds as soon as we arrived. It was simply wonderful to have a wine picnic on the lawn. This was a highlight of our trip.

This is not a mandatory activity by any means; it is on the smallish side and there are arguably much better attractions while visiting Paris. But if you have the time, this is a nice museum to visit, particularly if you are attracted to art...More

Stunning place to visit, even in the rain. We spent four hours walking round trying to take in everything. Art from people who stayed in the area and started lots of new movements. There's also lots to learn about the changes the area has gone...More

Literally great museum. It is like time travelling to the last century and taste the places and the stories of all the most famous french artists. Strongly recommended, but not for super short holidays in Paris, since other museum like the Musee d'Orsay are more...More

Not sure why one would attend this Musée to many other great ones in Paris! Very light on content in spite of the past artists who came through these doors.

After a visit to Sacre Coeur, we wandered down the streets of Montmartre following the path advised by TripAdvisor which takes you past this museum. To begin with you get the sense that the museum is quite small, but as you move around the rooms...More

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
