XIX - Le Musée de Montmartre


Painting by Jean-Marc Guéroux

The legendary house at 12 Rue Cortot, where Renoir painted “Le Bal du Moulin de la Galette” and “La Balançoire”, was home to Suzanne Valladon, her son Maurice Utrillo and Suzanne’s lover André Utter, but also Francisque Poulbot, the painter and benefactor of the children of Montmartre, and Raoul Dufy.

Its setting above the vineyards of Montmartre, as well as its peaceful gardens, make the museum the most relaxing and romantic place in Paris. The entire museum team, down to the guardian, has a true passion for the Butte. Their love of Montmartre can be seen in the atmosphere and administration of the site.

Here, amidst the stars of Montmartre art (Toulouse-Lautrec, Steinlen, Charles Léandre, Willette, Valladon, Utrillo), you can attend a concert by young artists of the Butte, such as Tom Gé, or renowned virtuosos such as the pianist Mario Feninger.

The museum is just small enough to feel like a home, rather than an exhibition space, while offering the works of the most prestigious artists of Montmartre.
