About
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.

A magical gem hidden in the heart of Montmarte, so cozy, peaceful and quiet. The atelier of S. Valedon was spectacular and well preserved. You can feel the atmosphere of the times of La Boheme

Great Introduction to Montmartre and its History
Feb 2020
We visited the museum at opening as an introduction to the Montmartre neighborhood. It is located near the top of hill and may be challenging for some people to get to. It is also near the Sacre Coeur and Dali Musuem, and can be paired with visits to them.
The museum had a nice collection of period art, posters and other historical material describing the history and significance of the Montmartre neighborhood.
The museum did a good job of explaining the cultural importance of the Montmartre to Paris. This museum is a great introduction and overview of Montmartre.

Experience the studio of Suzanne Valadron
Jan 2020 • Solo
I was so thrilled to find this museum. A lovely walk behind the cathedral, quintessential Parisian streets.The museum is in the home of Suzanne Valadron and other artists over time. Her studio is preserved and you can wander in the house to see it as it was. I was excited to learn of her as a woman artist at that time. And, she is the mother of Maurice Utrillo.

Just ok
Jan 2020 • Family
The Montemartre Museum was just ok. You will see Renoir’s first studio & some nice areas to take photos of. But that’s just it. The Renoir Garden was closed as there were no flowers. For me, this can be skipped for those planning a tour.

small but interesting museum
Nov 2019
A small museum with gardens and artist studio that shows various aspects of the history of Montmartre.
Not only the artists history but also the social history and the attractions of "no Paris decency rules" etc. The part of the commune uprisings was very informative, I knew nothing about and made a note to look more into it at a later date.The displays of the cabaret like Chat Noir was cool. Gardens and artist studio was nice. Worth the time I spend there.

A very unique and interesting small museum in the heart of Montmartre
Aug 2019
We enjoyed this visit very much the museum had an interesting display of works and artifacts. Situated in Montmartre it was also easy to access other places of artistic interest. There is a pleasant seating area surrounding a tea room that also provides light snacks.

Visit to the "most charming" museun in Paris
Nov 2019
Just behind the Place du Tertre and the Sacré-Coeur Basilica, there is museum about Montmartre, its history and the artists who lived in the area. The museum has a permanent collection and archives that it uses on a rotating basis, and it also welcomes other temporary exhibits. Therefore, it is not possible to describe exactly what will be on show at any given time. Exhibits, actually, are a bonus. The place itself is worth every minute you can spend there. it is a renovated set of houses that have stood there for many years, with lovely inside gardens. It is enchanting. The area around the museum is the oldest part of Montmartre ... The only negative is that part of this area has become EXTREMELY touristic which can be annoying.
