The cultural heritage of Paris would not be quite be the same without the artistic place and the artworks of Montmartre. Enjoy a parisien stay near the Montmartre museum, and and marvel at the collections and gardens that surround them.

The Montmartre Museum

A magical place

In the heart of the Montmartrois village, a place of timeless charm and with the sweetness of the ancient way of life making the whole world dream, there is a historic establishment to see : the Montmartre museum.
It houses the Bel Air House, the Suzanne Valadon’s workshop, the Charpentier room and the Hôtel Demarnen.,

Without a doubt, it is one of the oldest houses on the Butte : la Maison du Bel Air was built in the 17th century ! Many famous artists, such as Auguste Renoir or Raoul Dufy, used to live there.

The site is surrounded by old buildings, and offers a breathtaking view over the water tower square Claude Charpentier. Its neo-Byzantine style also reminds us of the Sacred Heart, of which we can see the top of a tower.

This magical setting gets us in the mood! The atmosphere is unique and timeless. It feels like being in the gardens of a castle in the countryside, while we are in the center of the 18th district of Paris !

The original effervescence of the Montmartre district

This establishment aims to trace the history of the emblematic eponymous district. You can admire paintings, posters, drawings, works… In other forms that reflect the creativity of artists who once worked there in their studios.

You can also experience the excitement of the old Montmartre district!
Thus, before discovering the permanent collections, you will be invited to attend Suzanne Valadon’s show, screened in the Charpentier Room.

Then, you will have the opportunity to explore the House of Bel Air. There you can find a room dedicated to French Cancan.

The theater, circus, dance and song have also occupied a major place on the Butte in the 19th and 20th centuries. If you want to know all the secrets of this place, you should book the guided tour with a speaker, organized only on weekends.

The gardens and Café Renoir

It would be a shame to come to the Montmartre Museum without enjoying the majestic character of the Renoir Gardens. From this green space that makes you forget the tumult of Paris, you can enjoy a panorama of the Clos Montmartre vineyards, and the vast north plain of the capital.

Another place worth a visit … The Café Renoir, where you could read or simply chill, under a glass roof of incredible charm.
