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.

cute and small, an old house where many artists had lived and we can see the place, their paintings and also admire the courtyards and the garden of the house!

If you have an afternoon spare in Paris, this could be the place to spend it. Montmartre is a wonderful area of Paris, with a bunch of great cafes (away from the tourist trap of Place du Tertre), multiple windmills, ateliers, a vineyard, the cemetery of Saint Vincent and the Musee de Montmartre. The museum has recently had a renovation... More

Le Musée de Montmartre is an amazing, fascinating little museum that was once the home of Renoir. It is a little oasis of history and charm, with wonderful views.

This was the first time that I have visited this museum. We did so on the recommendation of a friend and we weren't disappointed. It was wonderful to walk just 500 yards or so away from the crazy bustle of the Sacre Couer and step into this beautiful oasis of art. The museum has been recently refurbished and tremendous thought... More

This museum was once the house of Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Maurice Utrillo. They had lots of impressionist friends that visited them here. It also contains three beautiful gardens that inspired them. There are great views of the Montmartre district from the house and the gardens. Some of the famous pieces of art housed here are old posters for the Moulin... More

If you are fighting your way through the crowds at Place du Tertre and Sacre-Coeur, and looking for somewhere interesting but quieter I would really recommend this lovely little museum. Its just 2 roads down hill Northwards from the Place du Tertre. There's not much in the way of signage to it and, maybe because of that, there were no... More

This museum was such a pleasant surprise. It offered some interesting history, which we enjoyed, but the grounds, and the house itself were the true gems. After visiting many many museums on our vacation, this little museum was very refreshing and fun to explore.

If you're a fan of the impressionist movement this is a must see. A hidden gem that's well worth the visit, that housed several famous names in it's day. Pretty gardens and a free audio guide too on top of the admission fee. Some very famous pieces in there, a lot of Toulouse-Lautrec at the top of the house and... More

Museum entrance is €9 and includes an audio guide. The museum houses the history of Montmartre, change of the neighbourhood over time, works and information of famous artists that worked and lived in Montmartre. We visited the museum on the fifth day in Paris after visiting the other larger art museums (Orsay, Louvre, Orangerie & Pompidou) – it was the... More

This is a small museum right in Montmartre, that you can visit in an hour or two if you are really into old posters, Renoir's paintings, what "made" Montmartre what it is today (and I'm not talking about the tourist attraction nor the wandering artists)! It costs 9 euros for entrance, which is about $12.00 - unfortunately no senior discount,... More
