American Friends of Musée de Montmartre
The Musée de Montmartre focuses on exhibiting the works of artists who lived in the Montmartre neighborhood of Paris in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
The goal of the American Friends of Musée de Montmartre (AFMM) is to raise awareness among Americans and provide additional financial support (on a tax-deductible basis) for the Museum’s activities. The AFMM supports exhibitions, educational activities and additions to the permanent collection of the Museum. The AFMM receives contributions through a 501(c)(3) organization, the King Baudouin Foundation.
A word from the AFMM's President, Jacqui Michel
"I am honored to be the inaugural President of the American Friends of Musée de Montmartre (AFMM). The AFMM celebrates the spirit of the artists of the 19th and beginning of 20th century in Montmartre. This period embraced bohemian lifestyle and intellectual curiosity and resulted in significant contributions to the development of modern art, literature and music.
The AFMM holds special events both in the United States and in Paris.
We promise interesting programs for art and history lovers as well as Francophiles. Please join us as we forge friendships and bonds both in the United States and in France."
Jacqui Michel, President

About the Museum
In the heart of Montmartre, this charming and atypical Museum is settled in the old houses of the neighborhood. The Museum’s buildings are surrounded by gardens and were where many renowned artists worked (e.g., Auguste Renoir, Emile Bernard, Raoul Dufy)... You can also see the studio-apartment of Suzanne Valadon (the first woman ever admitted to the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts).
The permanent collection presents the rich history of Montmartre, the excitement of its workshops and the atmosphere of its famous cabarets, from the Lapin Agile to the Moulin Rouge. The collection includes paintings, posters and drawings by Toulouse-Lautrec, Modigliani, Kupka, and Steinlen among many others. The Museum also has an area dedicated to the Chat Noir cabaret, with an exceptional collection of zinc panels used in the cabaret’s shadow theater and paintings by Steinlen that decorated the Chat Noir.
Each year the Museum puts on at least two special exhibitions.
