The station opened on 5 November 1910 as part of the original section of the Nord-Sud Company's line A between Porte de Versailles and Notre-Dame-de-Lorette. On 27 March 1931 line A became line 12 of the Métro. It is named after the nearby Notre-Dame des Champs Church on the Boulevard du Montparnasse and is designed by the architect and engineer Gustave Eiffel.

The station reflects the style of the Nord-Sud Company. The entrance is original. Like most stations on Line 12, the original tiling on the platform, originally by Boulenger & Co., was hidden behind a metal sheath (carrossage) for forty years. This was removed in 2008, and the entire station was retiled in a replica scheme approximating the original Nord-Sud decor.
