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.

I can't say enough about this beautiful little gem in Monmartre. It's just off the beaten path, a few steps beyond the artists and cafes behind Sacre Coeur. It was our third trip to Paris with our kids who are now teenagers, and we needed...More

What a magical place! To walk among the building and grounds that were once inhabited by Renoir, Suzanne Valadon, and Maurice Utrillo was a thrill. When you're up in Valadon's apartment, make sure to look out the window to see Le Lapin Agile over the...More

While the entry fee is high (11 Euro), this museum is worth the visit. Situated in a house that was most famously occupied by Maurice Utrillo and his mother Suzanne Valadon, the museum is something of an homage to old Montmarte, the rural community that...More

A Museum dedicated to the artist community that used to thrive here. The gardens where Renoir painted, and a beautiful collection of paintings.

I was bummed out because I wanted to see some of Suzanne Valadon's paintings at the contemporary museum which was undergoing renovations while we were in Paris, but instead we happened upon something even better - the Musee de Montmartre. This is a great experience...More

Le Musée de Montmartre is a cozy little museum that transmits beautifully the historical and artistic importance of Montmartre. When we left, as we strolled by the streets, we imagined Picasso, Renoir or, of course, Toulouse Lautrec walking by and hanging out in the same...More

This is not a museum of Impressionist paintings but rather a museum of the Montmartre neighborhood and the lives of the artists there. Located just a few blocks away from the crowded, tourist oriented Place du Tertre you'll find the Musee de Montmartre on a...More

A hidden jewel within the tourist trap that is Montmartre — charming. The artworks recount the history of Montmartre, once a thriving artists area. Includes lovely garden spaces to hang out in, making it particularly appealing in sunny weather.

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
