Musées Jean-Jacques Henner et Gustave Moreau

Le musée national Jean-Jacques Henner est installé dans l’ancienne demeure du peintre-décorateur Guillaume Dubufe, hôtel particulier de la plaine Monceau abritant aujourd’hui l'œuvre du peintre alsacien Jean-Jacques Henner. Il propose également une programmation riche et éclectique promouvant les jeunes compagnies, accueillant chaque année un artiste en résidence.

Le musée national Gustave Moreau ouvre ses portes en janvier 1903 au cœur du quartier de la Nouvelle Athènes. L'accrochage, resté inchangé depuis, est celui que l’artiste et son légataire universel Henri Rupp ont imaginé. Sur quatre niveaux, la maison-musée dans laquelle sont conservées près de 25 000 œuvres dévoile les multiples facettes du maître symboliste.

Depuis le 1er janvier 2024, les deux institutions proposent un billet unique. Un billet d’entrée acheté au musée national Gustave Moreau permet d’accéder librement au musée national Jean-Jacques les 72 h suivant la visite du musée national Gustave Moreau et réciproquement.

Offre adhérent : tarif réduit pour le billet unique (6€) et les activités culturelles des musées Jean-Jacques Henner (concerts : 10€, visites thématiques / promenades et lectures : 8€) et Gustave Moreau (concerts et spectacles : 12€) pour tout adhérent à la Carte Blanche des musées d'Orsay et de l’Orangerie.
