We arrived one minute after the last entry and they would not let us in. Asked for manager and he said no. Terrible customer service!

This is a relatively small museum. It houses mainly the work of Monet and some other impressionist paintings. To my surprise I found the illuminations and the paintings from the first empire quite intriguing. Since I am an art lover, I enjoyed the visit. However if you are not a fan of Monet, I am not sure if this is... More

I took metro line 9 La Muette.The signs direct you towards the museum thru park Ranelagh.it is a nice walk. It is closed on mondays. It cost 11 euros and 3 euros more for an audio guide. There are 3 floors of artwork. The monets are downstairs. There were paintings by other artists such as morisot. I was not impressed... More

The house and exhibition are very nice, not only Monet but you will certainly find many of his wonderful pieces. Travel there by regular bus, it is a very enjoyable trip. After the visit, wander around the neighborhood, I had a feeling of being local as it is a residential area

What a treat this museum is. Almost entirely dedicated to works by Monet, many of these masterpieces will keep you coming back time and again for appreciation in depth. I have always admired Monet, but this trip to France with visits to this museum, the d'Orsay, the l'Orangerie and a day trip to Giverny opened my eyes to the incredible... More

Who knew that this small, lovely, boutique museum would have the most amazing collections of Monet anywhere. It is staggering beautiful.

This is a Monet museum on the western outskirts of Paris that displays many Monet paintings that were given to the museum by Monet's son. It is worth a visit.

This is not as crowded as other more well known museums but far more enjoyable if you are a fan of Monet. The bottom floor was filled with his paintings and one can sit while listening to the audio explanation. Once you have visited the Lourve and Orsay this is a gem not to be missed.

If you like Monet, this is the place to see! What an amazing collection. And the toilette exhibit was also really interesting. The audio tour was good but the explanations were very long.
