Owner description: 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.

This has to be a must see if in Montmartre. We have walked past this museum in the past when visiting Paris but are so glad we didn't dismiss it this time. This is a great museum with so much history seeping out of every inch of the house and garden. If your interested in French painters then you will love this museum. Renoir resided here in 1876 and painted some of his most famous pieces here. The vineyard, at the bottom of the 'Renoir' garden, still produces nearly 1000 bottles of wine every year and the money goes back into projects within Montmartre. All in all a fab little museum that leaves you feeling nostalgic for Paris in the late 1880's.

For those interested in the history of artists in Montmartre, as well as the village itself, this is a do not miss attraction. The lives of the artists in the village are set in the larger spectacle of the Paris of their time, giving additional depth to visits to the larger, better known art museums of Paris.

This was a lovely museum from the gardens outside with the surprise of a vineyard at the bottom of the garden. There was an exhibition of cartoons about Picasso's time in Montmartre and his love life which was very interesting. Great audio guide included in the price which was very informative. It was great to see how many artists made this area their home and the impact they had on the art scene.

This is a lovely small museum with beautiful gardens and a view. I am a Toulousse-Lautrec fan so I really enjoyed it.

This was a lovely museum with an exhibition of cartoons about Picasso's time in Montmartre. The garden outdoors was beautiful - especially to see the setting of Renoir's painting of the Girl and the swing. Very good labels and audio guides took you back in time to when Montmartre was a hill covered in vineyards and the favourite spot of many artists.
