Musée Edith Piaf | A tribute to “The Little Sparrow”


In this small private museum in the 11th arrondissement, an enthusiast has carefully collected objects belonging to the great French singer Edith Piaf in order to pay tribute to her and introduce The Little Sparrow to younger generations.

In private with Edith Piaf

With his association Les Amis d’Edith Piaf, Bernard Marchois, an unconditional fan of The Little Sparrow who was lucky enough to meet her in his youth, now offers visitors the opportunity to visit a museum dedicated to her in order to discover this French star in an intimate setting with many collectable items. Located in an apartment in which Piaf lived for a year at the beginning of her career, the museum can only be visited by appointment.

Exceptional pieces

The museum houses both paintings of the artist as well as objects which belonged to her, such as letters written to her sister, clothing and other personal belongings that allow the singer of La Vie en Rose to come back to life. This song and many of her other successes helped to shape the future of French songwriting. Among the objects that have been collected over 10 years by the curator of the museum, you can also discover boxing gloves that belonged to Marcel Cerdan, the great love of her life, celebrated in song in Hymne à l’Amour and Mon Dieu after his death in a plane accident on his way to be with her. Musée Edith Piaf 5 rue Crespin-du-Gast 75011 By appointment only from Monday to Wednesday from 1pm to 6pm (free of charge) Tel: +33 (0)1 43 55 52 72
