Montmartre Museum (Musée de Montmartre)

12 Rue Cortot, Paris, 75018

The Basics

Montmartre became a hot spot among Parisian artists in the 1870s and into the 1880s, when some of the area's original cabarets opened. This compact museum, housed where Renoir painted works such asBal du Moulin de la Galette, celebrates the neighborhood's legacy. Here you'll find a large collection of artwork from Montmartre's heyday, along with beautiful gardens inspired by the works of Renoir.

The 10 Tastings of Paris With Locals: Montmartre Private Food Tour
We had our tour with Olivia and she was amazing!! She was very knowledgeable about the history of the area and was able to answer many of our curiosity questions. She was easy to hang out with, talk to, and most importantly she did an awesome job on the tour.

The 10 Tastings of Paris With Locals: Montmartre Private Food Tour
Nella was wonderful. She gave me an insight into the richly historical area of Montmartre. It was so relaxing to sit down and taste the excellent cheeses she had selected. I even had a chance to drink European expresso (which I never liked) but enjoyed it when Nella suggested the “ correct” way to drink it. I highly recommend this private walking/ eating tour. It was a lot of fun.
