Tel: +33 (0)1 48 74 38 50
The museum, installed in the painter’s family home, was a project conceived by Gustave Moreau (1826-1898).
The apartments on the first floor form a small sentimental museum displaying family portraits and works given to Moreau by his friends Théodore Chassériau and Edgar Degas. The second and third floors are taken up with huge studios, containing hundreds of paintings and watercolours. The walls are covered with over four thousand drawings that give a broad perspective of the techniques and subjects of the undisputed master of French Symbolism.
A unique house-studio in Paris, the Musée National Gustave Moreau has managed to retain all the magic of its original atmosphere. It is located in the heart of Nouvelle Athènes, in the 9th arrondissement at the foot of Montmartre.
