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. It contains his drawings,paintings and water colours as well as his sculptures. Your nearest Metro stations are Saint-Georges ,Trinite-d'Estienne d'Orvis. Entry to museum is 7.5 euros. Its a wonderfully warm and charming museum showing the obsessive collector's nature. there is a... More

This museum is off the beaten path but is a great find if you appreciate great artists. Housed in Gutave's former home the house is to be appreciated as much as the art.

While not a Moreau enthusiast the opportunity to view paintings in this residential museum was a great opportunity to see how the artist and his family lived. The diversity of paintings was interesting but the real treasures seemed to be in the small cabinets with sketches and smaller works. The architecture of the building was great, particularly the spiral stair... More

So much more than a studio /home. Not just "how and where this remarkable artist lived," but a stunning display of his works, including sketches and studies on paper in special frames that a visitor can leaf through without touching the works. I would put this in the top 5 attractions in Paris for any art lover. It is an... More

This superb museum sits in an area of Paris that has other stunning architecture around it - we went with no expectations - the first floor was beautiful but felt a bit like we were going to see a repeat of other Museums like Monceau and Carnavalet ... (which we love) but as we climb the stairs to Moreau's studio... More

This museum is located in the home of Moreau which is beautiful with a winding staircase and huge studio. The paintings provide a great introduction to Moreau and there are many sketches that you can look at as well. The museum is small but not crowded and well worth visiting - even just to see the inside of a true... More

7.5/10 museum which has maintained the artists apartment and large studio on 3 separate floors, and turned it into a thoughtful celebration of his work and life. Personally not a huge fan of his work but still worth a visit for the decor and ambience. Only 5 eur, and free for resident Parisiennes.

Loved this little museum....his home and studio. I was not a fan before, but now am. When I visited, only ten other people in entire museum. I think worthwhile.
