Montmartre Museum (Musée de Montmartre) Tours

Montmartre Museum (Musée de Montmartre)
Housed inside the Bel Air House, the oldest building in Paris's charming Montmartre area, the Montmartre Museum offers a stunning permanent collection of art from some of the neighborhood's most celebrated and prolific artists. The Renoir Gardens here are equally worth visiting, with a beautiful pond and meandering pathways.
 
The Basics
Montmartre became a hot spot among Parisian artists in the 1870s and into the 1880s, when some of the area's original cabarets opened. This compact museum, housed where Renoir painted works such as Bal du Moulin de la Galette, celebrates the neighborhood's legacy. Here you'll find a large collection of artwork from Montmartre's heyday, along with beautiful gardens inspired by the works of Renoir.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The museum is a must-visit for anyone with an interest in art and/or Parisian history.
  • Separate garden-only tickets are available for those who don’t want to venture inside.
  • Only the temporary exhibition space is wheelchair-accessible.
 
How to Get There

The museum is located in the Montmartre neighborhood, in the 18th arrondissement of Paris. The closest metro stop is Lamarck–Caulaincourt on line 12; you can also take the metro to Abbesses and then walk to the Montmartre Funicular (or take stairs to the top). Petit Train de Montmartre, a tourist train that plies the neighborhood, also stops right in front of the museum.
 
When to Get There
The museum and gardens are open daily from midmorning to early evening from October through March, with extended hours from April through September. Doors shut 45 minutes before closing time. Evening visits are also available on Thursdays in July and August; these include a 45-minute introduction and a glass of wine.
 
Special Exhibits
Along with its permanent collection, the museum offers temporary exhibits throughout the year, listed well in advance on its website. Past themes have ranged from the works of specific artists, such as sculptor Georges Dorignac and expressionist painter Bernard Buffet, to special exhibitions featuring selected works from private collections.
Address: 12 Rue Cortot, Paris 75018, France
