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.

This museum is incredible! All you need to know about Montmartre history is in this museum. So many different and inspired exhibitions. Such a pretty garden. The atmosphere is relaxing. Absolutely worthwhile!

This museum is a genuine 'hidden gem'. Situated down a backstreet behind the Sacre- Coeur and set on the hillside, the beautiful gardens have a spectacular historic view of Paris. Inside the exhibition is fascinating not only displaying many fine paintings but also mapping out...More

I don't know how I've been coming to Paris for forty years and never been here. But inspired by a book on the artists of Montmartre (Picasso, Chaim Soutine, so many more) I looked this up and decided to give it a go. Didn't have...More

The museum can easily get overlooked in this sidestreet on the Montmartre hill (although it is signposted), and this is exactly what we did on our previous visits. We are more than glad, however, that we finally came across this gem of a museum, which...More

This easy flowing and homey presentation offers a historical look at the old party town of artists, derelicts, and carousers of the lower class Montmarte hill and it's displacement by the construction of the Basilica Sacre Cour. Also of interest was the exposition of filmography...More

Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy
