A great museum with a wonderful collection of the later impressionists, including marvelous paintings by Monet that were done at the end of his life. Fabulous setting in a mansion that gives one the sense of 19th-century life in Paris. Not to be missed.

This amazing museum in a gorgeous mansion in the 16th arrondissement is a MUST for Monet lovers. Gorgeous, huge paintings mostly from Giverny. I am in awe every visit. It is a 10 euro Uber ride from the 2nd arrondissement or take metro to La Muette stop and walk through a lovely park.

A stroll through a park from the Metro brings you to this gorgeous mansion with a beautiful collection of Monet's water lilies. Charming and intimate. Lots of nearby small cafes and restaurants nearby. This is a peaceful place and a good way to see exceptional art without trudging for miles in marble corridors.

We always return to this museum when visiting Paris. It is not well known, but if you like Monet's works this little place will give you a good sense of his work.

Took the subways here and it was worth the trip to get away from the lines and crowds at other Monet museums. The walk from the subway to the museum is lovely as well. I love small museums and this place was perfect.

The museum is a real revelation for the visitor. You don't have to be an expert in art to appreciate this wonderful collection. The intimacy of the museum is a bonus for those wishing to admire the genius of the impressionists.

This museum, a bit off the beaten track, is not as crowded as it deserves. Except for wonderful temporary exhibitions, I saw one of the importance of Napoleon's sisters for his ambitions of building an empire, there are permanent exhibitions of Monet paintings which you cannot take your eyes from. And a nice museum shop!

We love this museum, feel like we need to bring it to peoples attention since it's not centrally located. Wonderful art, and even more fun when there is a special exhibit showing. Try to have the time for this place, quite nice, Salida1048

My friend and I wanted to see the special exhibit temporarily at this museum and went for that, but we also found the permanent collection quite compelling, especially the 64 Monets donated by the artist's son. Huge canvasses cover the walls of a purpose- built addition. Many but not all were large works, and many but not all were of... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed viewing the artworks and particularly enjoyed walking through this lovely building. The numerous artworks were a joy to behold. We arrived early on a Saturday morning in early January 2016 - it was not crowded at all.
