The art, the history, the buildings themselves — all embody the ethos of Montmartre at its prime. FYI: this is not included on the Paris museum pass. Also the stairs and configurations of some rooms will be a challenge for those with mobility issues. If...More

This is a real treat from start to finish. The buildings themselves hold stories of artists' lives but the exhibition on 19th century Paris cabaret is superb with some fabulous artifacts. The van Dongen exhibition during 2018 was wonderful and enormously informative. If you can...More

Small interesting museum, giving insight in the atmosphere and history of Montmartre at the end of the 19th century. Wander around the garden and have a glass of wine at the small cafe. It is an oasis of peace in the busy touristic area.

It is located in one of the oldest homes in Montmartre, that have had many well known artists live within it's walls, including Renoir. It gives a good pictorial history of the district, along with actual furnishings of the period. There is a short video...More

It is a well done museum about a specific era in the history of Monmartre, not really an Art Museum. Yes there were some good pieces from that time but it was more about the area and a few particular residents. That being said we...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
