N48°52.667' E2°20.053' The first floor may be deceptive entering this museum. It’s full of small rooms with small paintings wall-to-wall. Not very impressive, but it gives an inside in the daily living of the painter and sculpture. During our visit in June 2014, the huge open atelier on the second floor and the gallery on the third floor came as... More

I've been to Paris many times, but this is the first time at the Musee Gustave Moreau. It's a bit out of the way, closest to the St. Georges metro. Once you take a short walk (with a good detailed map) you'll enter Moreau's world: his cluttered flat and two floors of his work. Yes, you're in a rush with... More

Located in the home of the painter, the real attraction is the atelier. I am not a fan of his painting but his drawing are wonderful. The drawings are behind curtains and displayed in the most wonderful display cases. You can sit an admire the fine drawings for hours. It is a wonderful experience.

I happen to be a fan of this artist's work, but none the less, I was speechless. It is a small museum, but I will remember my visit there for the rest of my life. If you are an art lover, a must see.

A spectacular staircase, impressive studio space, personal effects make it worth a detour. The walls are covered with mostly unfinished paintings. You decide if you like them.

The Museum Gustave Moreau presents the historical apartment – where the famous painter lived – and the Atelier. The apartment preserves the style and feeling of a nineteen century residence. Of course, the most interesting part is the atelier, where a remarkable collection of paintings is present. Despite some works are unfinished, they still represent a magnificent overview of the...

Visiting the Gustave Moreau studio and home is a welcome and wonderful diversion from touristy areas of Paris. The house is on a quiet street neat Montmartre, so understated that you may not realize you have arrived. Wandering through the charming living quarters is nice, but visiting the artist's studio upstairs is wonderful. The day I visited there were maybe... More

This is an interesting little museum tucked away in a side street, but is quite easy to find, using a tourist map. It is approx. 10mins walk from St Georges station on the Metro. There is a reasonable entrance fee and there is a surfeit of art to browse. The rooms on the first floor are set up - presumably... More

I had not heard of this artist and went to the museum on the strength of some of the reviews here. I was not disappointed, the little apartment he used is crammed with his collections and gives an appreciation of a Paris apartment of a rich person of the time. The study and his works upstairs are amazing, what a... More

Located at 14, rue de la Rochefoucauld,in the 9th arrondissement,this museum was originally Moreau's dwelling,transformed into the current utility.

Its a wonderfully warm and charming museum showing the obsessive collector's nature. there is a... More
