At first sight, the museum looks like a beautiful town villa. After visiting the ground floor and first floor - beautiful decorated rooms, great art - you wonder where the Monets are. And then, after going through a good temporary exhibition - you discover the huge basement rooms where the Monets are shown in a beautiful way. Temporary exhibition about... More

We had the opportunity to see the private collections in May 2014 and we were also 'wowed' by the Monet's that are present here. My spouse suggested that travelers might start at Giverny first before visiting the Marmottan and l'Orangerie, to better understand Monet. We faced long lines on a weekend and didn't have a good sense of where to... More

I missed seeing this museum on my last trip to Paris and was glad I made the effort. Mass transit is available, but I took a cab there. Next time I will take more time and listen to the audio, but I had a luncheon reservation. There are some wonderful treasures here...do go.

About a 20 minute and easily navigatable walk from the Eiffel Tower, this musee is worth a visit. This little Musee is a brilliant one. The Monet's are prolific and beautifullynset out and the setting is delightful. This intimate museum is well worth a visit as is a walk along the streets of Passay, the route you take to get...

This is not just a Monet museum as the the furniture and decor is just superb. The actual Monet's were such a thrill. I have always loved his work so to see so much of them up close was a real thrill. You can't take pictures even without a flash, not sure why, probably so they can sell the book... More

This originaly private collection , held in a beautiful 19th cent private mansion. No crowds , only paintings and architecture. Most of the Monet's paintings from his hous in Giverny were transferred to this museum. Lots of water lillies. Lot of room, lot of light, green and silence around. Little bit far from the downtown but if have time or... More

A little out of the way (although accessible by Metro,) but definitely worth it. There's a great permanent exhibition on the ground and first floors which cover Impressionists other then Monet and some medieval art that was donated to the museum. There's a wonderful room dedicated to Morisot. The museum is in an old mansion, and some of the 19th... More

To surround oneself with the works of Monet's life was extraordinary. More than 130 in this collection, the largest inthe world. It made the murals at L'Orangerie anticlimactic for me. What an amazingly, beautiful museum.

This is a bit unfair, because this year is a major anniversary for both Impressionism and this museum, and they had an unbelievable exhibit for the Soleil Levant which started it all. Great exhibit with superb scholarship. If I moved that out of my review, I still would give this museum a good review for the tremendous collection of Monet... More

Small, not crowded, great works of many artists, especially lovely works of Monet and Berthe Morisot, and many of their collegues.
