An amazing houseful of Moreau's work, much of it unfinished, in the actual home in which he lived. Even the toilet looked as if it might be authentic - and you can't beat that for an immersive experience. One warning - if you're anywhere near closing time, start at the top. I only glimpsed the best bit, as "closing time"... More

We bought the 4 day Paris pass-which is a great deal- if you jam those four days with as many attractions as you can.(Tiring, though!) Musee Gustav Moreau was one of those museums I wouldn't have gone to without the pass giving me free admission. It was a quirky venue, complete with spiral staircase, floor to ceiling art and interesting... More

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.

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
