I was utterly delighted and thrilled to have found such a treasure, especially as I had been unsure what to expect of the Museum. When I went on 9 March there was only one review in a language I don't speak! Moreau, and indeed this...More

If you are a fan of Moreau's painting, you will be thrilled with this small museum. I am not, and found his work dreary at best. However, the museum is housed in Moreau's home, which is very interesting to see. If you have done all...More

After you've been to the big museums, this is a pleasant place to try something different. Nice collection in a classic manor house from the mid 19th Century.

The fact of being his own house gives it all the nice atmosphere to browse through all his sketches, and his gigantic paints hanging on the wall. We've been there 4 times already and there's always something we hadn't seen the first time. Highly recommended!

This is a flat-like museum filled with symbolism artworks. The working hours are 10h-17h, but even if it is small it's not crowded and you can go at any time without fear of being squashed by other visitors.

the museum is located in the nice house where moreau lived in Montmartre. There are lots of paintings which are installed very near to each other. It gives an overwhelming impression: too much paintings in a place which is too small for that. The works...More

If you like smaller museums, you’ll like this one. Very nice property and collection with no lines at the ticket counter. Set aside two hours at least for the visit. Truly a must see

The artist Moreau decided to convert his home into a museum, and created several large-scale paintings specifically to fill the rooms. And filled they are... The paintings are not really my style (too dark and too much pathos), but the history of the place makes...More

Nestled on a small street high on a hill stands the Musee Gustave Moreau. I am admittedly a Moreau fan and I suspect one would have to be to venture forth and see the collection cum home. The sublime painter of the surreal subconscious mysterious...More

If you are a fan of Moreau, nothing can beat this place for its artifacts of his life. It's also a glimpse into life in Nineteenth Century Paris as this is a typical good house.

It is also the artist's residence and studio. I always love to visit museums that were converted from the artist's residence because they are not designed with the security as the top priority, but more focused on displaying the art in the best light. This...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood 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, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
