Walk and visit to the Montmartre museum

The Musée Montmartre is one of Montmartre's most romantic and authentic landmarks. Formed by the union of 3 buildings and several gardens, it was here that many artists such as Auguste Renoir, Émile Bernard, Raoul Dufy, Suzanne Valadon and Maurice Utrillo stayed. The museum includes the gardens and its café, the permanent exhibition and the temporary exhibition.
To reach this romantic and cultural site, we're going to take a route that's just as charming as its destination. Follow the trail!

We will be at the exit of the Lamarck-Caulincourt station

We climb the steps

At the top of the steps, you can stop for a coffee at Ginette's.

We cross the Place Constantin Pecqueur square and climb the stairs to Rue Grirardon.

We're coming up behind Place Dalida, which we mentioned in another walk.

We turn left onto rue de l'Abreuvoir, towards the Montmartre Basilica

We pass the Maison Rose

And finally to rue Cortot

And here we are at the Musée de Montmartre. The walk has already half transformed us into Montmartreans

The gardens of the Montmartre museum

We suggest you start your visit by exploring the gardens.

Time stands still

Garden where Auguste Renoir worked

Suzanne Valadon and Maurice Utrillo's painting studio can be seen

We then approach another garden with the small café on the left. Here you can take a break and read a book if you wish

Descending the steps to the lower garden, you can see the Clos-Montmartre vineyards, where wine production is celebrated every year during the grape harvest festival in October

The permanent exhibition at the Musée de Montmartre

The permanent collections plunge us into the history of Montmartre, starting with the effervescence of its painters' studios. They also present the atmosphere of its cabarets, from the Lapin Agile to the Moulin Rouge. One room is dedicated to the French Cancan, while another features shadow theater, the dreamlike decor for which the Chat Noir cabaret is famous.

Temporary exhibitions at the Musée de Montmartre

Most of the space is devoted to temporary exhibitions, whose scenography and research work are of a very high standard for a private museum.
As their name suggests, these exhibitions are temporary, and the one we saw, "Surréalisme au féminin?", ends on September 10, 2023. We invite you to discover the current exhibition here:  https://museedemontmartre.fr/en/expositions-et-evenements/

Jane Graverol - Le sacre du Printemps , 1960

Jacqueline Lamba - The blonde woman, 1930

All in all, this walk and tour are typically Montmartre and filled us with vitality. We highly recommend the experience.
