The Montmartre Museum, located in the heart of the village of Montmartre, is a cultural center that brings together people from the world of art and literature for lectures and concerts.
In this way it carries on a tradition that began with the construction of the building in the 17th century.
It was known as Maison Rosimond as it was owned by Rose de Rosimond, a famous actor who was part of Moliere's troop. It is the oldest house in Montmartre.
The house and its lovely garden has retained the rural and picturesque charm of the area.
It has been the home and studio for many illustrious personages in the art and literary world including painters Auguste Renoir, Maurice Utrillo, Susan Valadon, Raoul Dufy, Francisque Poulbot, composer Erik Satie and writer Leon Bloy.
The Museum has exhibits of archeology on the local area including displays of local history including scale models of the neighborhood. There are also paintings, letters and photography from the period. The furnishings are also of interest.
There is a book store which offers selections of artists works and local history, guides in English and Spanish. Being in the center of Montmartre, there are cafés nearby to enjoy a rest and a refreshment afterward.
