Sigmund Freud had a print or copy of Moreau's Oedipus and the Sphinx in his Vienna office and I thought the original would be here. There are drawings of the famous duo, but the original is in New York City. There are hundreds of other Moreaus here and my wife, who disliked this museum, said there were so many because... More

I always make it a point to visit the small, out-of-the-way museums of Paris, and although Gustave Moreau is not one of my favorite artists, I found his home, and the museum it has become, very attractive. The paintings and prints are clearly labeled, and it was interesting to note that the artist devoted several works to a very compact... More

Some great paintings - some very large format in a wonderful older home that has been turned into a museum for the artist. Takes less than an hour of your time and is well worth it.

There are more Japanese who come and visit this exceptional museum than Westerners.....the art reflects the life of the artist who managed to cut himself from the world and paint heroes and heroines from time gone by....the mystical touch of his work is highlighted by his attention to detail....and colour....and dimension (often monumental) helps create a feeling of awe when...

This is an excellent museum. It has the apartment and the lofts of Gustave Moreau, excellently curated and restored. You not only can see what a lovely 19th/early 20th century Parisian townhouse was like, and reproductions of his and other artists' quarters, you also walk through two large lofts, which contain hundreds of Moreau's works in progress. His imagination and... More

We have been already in every big museum in Paris. That's the reason we deceided to give a try to the house of the painter Gustave Moreau. The house is amazing, no wonder his father was a famous architect, the stairs between the 2 and 3 floors out of this world. His paintings are huge, dark, full of simbols, and... More

Me and my husband really enjoyed our visit here. We stayed for about over an hour to view and reflect on the paintings on the walls. There different sizes with different stories. Heartwarming place. Walking from our friends place to the museum took for about 30 mins walk and the moment we arrived at the museum, we were so delighted... More

While I had heard of Gustave Moreau, I must admit I was not all that familiar with his work as I am not a big fan of symbolist art. We went to the wonderful museum with our friends in Paris and quite enjoyed it! He was very important to 19th century French art but this place was the result of... More

Moreau's symbolist paintings look unique. Do some research before you plan your visit. If you like this style of painting, this place might be to your taste. If you don't like this style, it'll be a waste of money and time for you to visit this gallery. I'm not into symbolism art, and I dislike religious topics, so I just... More

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.
