HistoryEdit

The station opened on 30 September 1913 when Line 8 was extended from Charles Michels (then called Beaugrenelle) to Porte d'Auteuil. The Line 9 platforms opened on 8 November 1922 with the opening of the first section of the line from Trocadéro to Exelmans. On 27 July 1937, the section of Line 8 between La Motte-Picquet – Grenelle and Porte d'Auteuil, including Michel-Ange – Molitor was transferred to Line 10. The station is named after the streets of Rue Michel-Ange (named after the painter Michelangelo) and Rue Molitor (named after Marshal Gabriel Jean Joseph Molitor).
