Gustave Moreau Museum (Musee Gustave Moreau) Tours
Read MoreShow Less
French Symbolist painted Gustave Moreau (1826-1898) spent the last years of his life alone in a small provincial house he’d purchased in 1852. Since he had no family to pass along his artwork to, he decided to bequeath his estate and all the paintings and drawings found within to the state of France.
Today, this former private home serves as a museum for Moreau’s work. Set up by Moreau himself and opened in 1903, the museum showcases the artist’s private collection of family portraits, souvenirs and personal mementos on the first floor and his paintings, inspired by fantastical scenes from Greek mythology and the Bible in the light-filled studios on the top two floors. Six rooms on the ground floor, previously closed to the public, were recently opened after extensive renovation and offer a look at life during the nineteenth century.
The Musee Gustave Moreau is accessible via metro stops Trinité, Saint Georges and Pigalle. It’s closed on Tuesdays.
Address: 14 Rue de la Rochefoucauld, Paris, France
Hours: Closed on Tuesdays Monday, Wednesday, Thursday: 10am - 12.45pm and 2pm - 5.15pm Friday, Saturday, Sunday: 10am - 5.15pm
