An excellent museum in a quiet area (at the edge of the Bois de Boulogne) not very far from a Metro stop, with none of the hordes at, say, the Louvre or d'Orsay. A relaxing walk along a park gets you there. Nice lunch spots nearby, too. This museum gives the most comprehensive look at Monet's work anywhere. (See the... More

A special intimate museum in which you are surrounded by Monet paintings including the painting that gave its name to the Impressionist movement "Impression of a Sunrise"

Fantastic collection of Monets in period house with beautiful interiors. Well worth the visit even though a little way out on edge of Bois de Boulogne.

I don't usually review tourist attractions but I happened to be looking at these reviews and noted that no one called attention to the progression of Monet. This is a fabulous place to see how Monet's vision, often of the same scene, changed not only with season and time of day, but in painting the same subject over longer periods... More

If you love impressionism paintings and Monet in specific you shouldn’t miss this museum. Slightly off the beaten track but more than worth the detour. You can easily get there by metro, or even walk there from the Eifel tower (20 min) or bike there like we did. The museum currently (Feb ’15) had a special exhibition on paintings showing... More

In addition to the original contents of the house, the museum boasts the personal estate of Claude Monet and a large donation by the heirs of Berthe Morisot, in addition to works of other impressionists, donated over the years. If you enjoy the impressionists and want to avoid the chaos of the Orsay, this museum shouldn't be missed.

I spent a really lovely moments in this museum which allow to see the inside of a XIXth century house and, at the same time, admire the painting of Monet, and especially Impression, soleil levant, in front of which I spent half of my visit! Amazing moment and visit!

The Marmottin is on the edge of central Paris but easily accessible. Downside is it is a late opener. Upside is that you get a very interesting upper floor of Impressionists including some lovelyBerthe Morissots. You think: 'Nice, but what's the fuss about?'. Then you go downstairs. Wow! Monet at his late best. A Must see in Paris.

Musee Marmottan Monet is situated near a park with pony rides and originally was a hunting lodge of the third Duke of Valmy, 1883. In addition to a fabulous collection of works by Monet and other artists of the Impressionist era, there are special, short term exhibits. We saw "La Toilette Naissance de L'Intime" that closes le 5 juin, 2015.... More

Staying in Trocadero

Neighborhood Profile
Trocadero
This is the neighborhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendor, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
