Fodor's Review

In its turn-of-the-20th-century heyday, the building—now home to Montmartre's historical museum—was a studio block for painters, writers, and cabaret artists. Foremost among them were Renoir (who painted the Moulin de la Galette, an archetypal scene of sun-drenched revelers, while he lived here) and Maurice Utrillo. Recapping the area's history, the museum has a charming permanent collection which includes many Toulouse-Lautrec posters and original Eric Satie

scores. An ambitious renovation that will double the current museum's space and revitalize its lovely gardens is due to be completed by the end of 2014. The museum remains open in the meantime.
