The meseum is located inside a normal apartment, the same one Edith lived in when she was 18 years old. It was founded by her fans, and for many years did not charge for entry.
The museum, whose background music consists of Piaf's voice, is a sort of temple to the singer. It has an impressive collection of photos, shoes, bags, and gloves that belonged to the diva, alongside her famous black dress, and endless fan letters written to her throughout her lifetime. These letters are full of love, that filled people's hearts with warmth and love in very tough times.
