Took a little while to find this museum since the Parisians I asked have never heard of it. Entry is included with the Museum Pass. There are no detailed explanations. The only other visitors consisted of a French tour group. There are wooden boxes with huge laminated papers (12" x 24" or so) that describe some but not all of... More

This classic museum depicts an inspiring story of Gustave Moreau. Situated close to the metro line 12,the storied building consists of 3 floors.As you go up the stairs from the entrance, the 1st floor tells us the daily life of the artist. Moving to the 2nd & 3rd floors one has to admire the huge collections of finished & unfinished... More

Only 4 small rooms in the house museum part, thousands of his works in the art gallery part. No explanation at all about the objects or pieces of furniture, only about the paintings and drawings. Some very impressive paintings.

This is a somewhat interesting museum, set up by the artist Gustav Moreau. His house and atelier and gallery are preserved as when he was alive. If you like his work, you will love this - it is full of his works. We unfortunately are not fans of his style. One thing of interest is his atelier. It was very... More

Wonderful small museum, the studio and apartment of the artist. They are closed for the lunch hour on certain days of the week. We went in the morning and found the artist's apartment is only open in the afternoon. We went out and had lunch and went back later. The apartment really rounds out the experience here, so best to... More

Gustave Moreau painted mythical and religious scenes, His home is rather eclectic. It is most famous for the staircase which leads up to his studio. Many of his major works are on display. If you are interested in his watercolors you need to ask a guard who will open the drawers containing the paintings.

I am a big fan of Gustave Moreau art, so I was expecting a lot from my visit. I was not disapointed at all. The museum is the Parisian house of the artist, with his studio. A wonderful atmosphere. There is not so many paintings but we weel the spirit.

Here in on place you can see sketches, partially, finished and finished canvases of a under appreciated artist. The repertoire and quantity of work overloads the senses. In addition in side panels along the wall, fold out panels have thousands of studies and details drawn by the artist in preparation.

A delightful little museum. It was interesting to see Moreau's home - you enter through his apartments, containing lots of self-portraits and paintings/prints that he collected during his lifetime. Then the top two floors are huge galleries full of his wonderful, crazy paintings, mostly based on myths and legends. The paintings are stunning, detailed and beautiful. And it is easy... More

Of interest to those who appreciate the effort that goes into producing a work of art. Fascinating collection of his sketches show the artist's study of the human and animal form prior to committing paint to canvas.
