I don't know how I missed this museum on previous trips to Paris, but I'm glad I found it this time. Having been to the Orangerie and the Musee d'Orsay, I thought I'd seen the best of the Impressionist museums, but this one has a wonderful selection of both Monets and other artists. Many of them I'd never seen before,... More

It has been a bit since I visited this museum, but a French friend took me there and I thoroughly enjoyed the many paintings of Claude Monet at the Musée Marmatton.

This museum is a short bus ride from the tourist heart of the city but it's worth a trip if you like Impressionists. It has the Monet painting "Impression" that gave that name to the movement. There is a big underground gallery with larger works underneath an old mansion.

An intimate museum, with a an entire circular room filled with Nympheas, as well as paintings by contemporaries of Monet, whose work he admired. Bijou

This museum has expanded since we were last there, and nicely shows some of the the foundations of modern art.. The paintings and the articles from this period are very interesting and well-explailned. Always enjoyable..

This wonderful gallery is a short walk from La Muette metro station, in a beautiful part of Paris. I was delighted by the park on the way, where elderly Parisians in their tweeds strolled hand in hand and little French scouts were out having a lovely time! I had to queue for a while on a Sunday morning, but perhaps... More

This was our second visit, the first being about 12 years ago. It is an excellent collection of impressionist works and more, all set in a lovely French mansion house. It's size makes it all very accessible and a relief for many, no doubt, after the sheer scale of galleries like the Louvre. The basement of Monet paintings such a... More

We had a family apartment within walking distance of this lovely museum, and went often. It is in a beautiful home that belonged to a military leader who was a friend of Monet. It has a terrific collection of impressionist paintings, displayed in this lovely and creative home. There is glass block in places in the floors to allow natural... More

There is a lot more in this museum than just paintings, although I would prefer more paintings. They have furniture, housewares, and a few sculptures on display. I visited solely for the Monet paintings and to see the Impression, Soleil Levant. The upper room has a number of paintings by Berthe Morisot and the lower basement area contains paintings all...

If you are a fan of Monet then this little museum is well worth the trip to western Paris. Aside from the largest collection of paintings by Monet, the house itself is a lovely mansion museum.
