I had some concern about this museum because it gets, in some places (including even a few on Trip Advisor), some mediocre reviews. I think those critical of the place miss the point. Yes, the museum contains art by various artists that lived and painted...More

Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy
