What to expect

One of the city’s most delightful museums, the Musée Montmartre is tucked away in a leafy setting in Montmartre, just a few steps from the Sacré-Cœur and the Place du Tertre.

Housed in the Hotel Demarne and the Maison du Bel Air, the museum offers an insight into the district’s artistic past and colourful life. It shows paintings, posters, illustrations, and photographs of artists who had an impact on the place, particularly those who once lived within its walls like Suzanne Valadon, Maurice Utrillo, André Utter or Renoir … This ticket gives you access to the museum, but also to the apartment studio of Suzanne Valadon, the wonderful Renoir Gardens and the cafe for a relaxing break. 

Temporary exhibition Auguste Herbin:

The painter Auguste Herbin is the best-kept secret of the modern art adventure. Yet he played an active part in all the creative breakthroughs of the 20th century: fauvism, cubism, abstraction. The man who lived at the Bateau-Lavoir for eighteen years achieved, in his ultimate style, a plastic alphabet with universal appeal.
The Musée de Montmartre is the first Parisian museum to devote a retrospective exhibition to Auguste Herbin, in the town where he created all his life. It retraces the painter's seven creative periods: postimpressionism, fauvism, cubism, monumental objects, new figuration, first and second abstraction, often with never-before-seen works. Here, Herbin regains his rightful place in the history of modern art, and presents us with first-rate works from each of his creative periods.

Excellent small museum

Excellent small museum- we learned much about the history of the area and the artists who worked there and of their art. There were no barriers so you can look closely at each piece. Interesting special exhibition also in progress at the time of our visit
