Hot tip. Book your tickets in advance on the internet. The queue is long and slow moving. Once inside, the exhibits are great and the current collection really interesting as there are lots of impressionist paintings from private collections. The draw back is that these are really popular so the area where these are exhibited is very crowded. We had... More

This museum is based in an old hunting lodge in a well-off area of Paris. The core of the collection is a donation from Monet's son and is displayed in the basement. Unfortunately at the moment there is a special exhibition so half of the Paris upper middle class is visiting along with school kid groups. The ground floor is... More

This museum, in the original collectors house, is definitely worth a visit. The house is beautiful, with furniture and pieces of art he collected that are extremely interesting. In addition there is a wonderful collection of paintings by Berthe Morisot and - until early July 2014 - a unique exhibition of impressionist paintings from private collections all over the world....

Curated solely with works by Monet previously owned by friends and family of the artist, Marmottan is located in the 16th in a beautiful old mansion complete with garden. Unlike the Louvre which could take days to cover, this gem requires under two hours even if you are a slow browser. Perfect for the art lover without the energy or... More

The museum contains the largest collection of Monet’s works, his son Michelle donated them to the museum in the 1970’s. Many of his sketches are really amusing to see, they were done by a younger Monet before he started his forma training. The musée also contains works from other impressionist artists as well. At the moment there is a special... More

If you do you wait less. This doesn´t end here after paying you get in such an over cowded place... More

Really a special opportunity to see a temporary exhibition of impressionist artworks from private collections within the magnificent works of art by Monet. A small museum worth the visit!

A wonderful museum with interesting history. Be sure to check the website before you go as there's currently an impressionist exhibit which is not separate from general museum admission, so you'll wait in a long line if you don't have tickets. (I didn't have them but arrived about 30 minutes before the museum opened and was able to get in)... More

Not very near a Metro station, but a nice walk through the Ranelagh gardens and be prepared for very long queues to get in. Marvellous 1st Empire Interiors and great Impressionist collection.

About a 45 minute wait to get inside and once inside it was a bit confusing because of the ropes for the exhibition but overall it was excellent. The best pieces are located downstairs in the basement.
