Musée Gustave Moreau

Why should people go there?
Besides being a beautiful and quite intimate museum with a large and interesting collection (Gustave Moreau used to live and work here), this is also where you will find Paris’ most famous staircase.

What’s a must have?
Need I say it? Of course you have to see that unique staircase.

When is the best time to go?
This is still somewhat of a hidden gem and during most weekdays you will be able to have it almost to yourself and if you’re lucky get to see art student at work.
