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

What a wonderful introduction into the life and home of a wealthy artist. The rooms were abundant with paintings, sketches, sculptures. The furniture of the time is in place; there is a real sense of beauty in furniture and furnishings. The art becomes more colourful as one ascends; the final spiral staircase being sublime. To see so much artwork of... More

Perfect alternative to blockbusters museum such as Louvre or Musée d'Orsay. Not so far from them and on your way to Montmartre you absolutely have to stop by this museum. A rare beautiful time capsule. Take your time here, this place hides secrets to be discovered. Beautiful paintings by the father of symbolism, who certainly influenced all the surrealists that...

This is an absolute gem in Paris. Gustave Moreau was an intriguing and extremely talented painter within the Symbolist movement. His home, curated by the artist himself, has some stunning interiors crammed with his beautiful paintings. The centre piece of the house is the spiral staircase, which links the upper floors. The museum has really nicely designed interactive cupboards where... More

Was recommended to visit this lesser known museum and was very glad we did! The museum is the former dwelling of Moreau and it's located very centrally in the 9th. It's displays magnificent paintings, drawings and sculptures in a small but perfectly sized Parisian house! Worth a visit for sure!!

A house in Paris. Home and studio combined. Glimpses of the man behind the artist made more real in this intimate setting. Sensuous nudes and better known works wait to be discovered in such an understated but powerful location.

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.
