The Musee Marmottan is a fantastic museum with an incredible collection of impressionist artwork, including the largest Monet collection in the world, including the definitive piece that gave the entire genre it's name, Money's Impression, Sunrise. You'll also see all 3 of Monet's works that were on display in the first impressionist exhibition, as well as a diverse collection of... More

We had wonderful memories of our previous visit to Musee Marmottan Monet three years ago and on our last day in Paris this time decided to return. We were unaware that a three month display of beautifully presented information and pieces relating to Monet's Impression Sunrise had commenced just two days ago and what a treat this was - including...

As the title says, we actually visited the Marmottan in 2012. It is a really wonderful museum with a most gracious presentation of the work housed within. It is located in the 16th arrondissement off the beaten tourist path. It is near the nice Jardins du Ranelagh, and is housed in an old mansion giving the museum an air of... More

When I was there, they had a special exhibit, bringing in more works by Impressionists, so maybe I'm tainted. I think this is the best art museum in Paris (if you like Impressionism). There is so much from all the artists, but especially Monet. It is just wonderful, and a little off the beaten path.

This is a museum which has three parts: First Empire art, furniture and objects d'art; 2) medieval sculpture and manuscripts; 3) Monet, Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. While the first two parts are engaging to an extent, they do not hold a candle next to part three! We started our walk through the mansion on the main floor, second floor and basement,... More

Not to be missed - world' largest collection of Monet's work. Many charicatures and other interesting Monet works in addition to his later impressionist paintings. Yes, many water lillies as well. Friendly staff, pleasant gift shop And clean toilet facilities. All in all, very worthwhile to spend time here and return often

Missed by many, this museum houses some of the very best Monet's and impressionist paintings. There was a special exhibition from private collections from around the world. Stunning. Cancel your trip to Giverny. LOL.

We never miss visiting this museum when we are in Paris. It is a bit out of the way in the 16th but it has the most amazing collection of Monets you can find. Sure the Orangerie has the Water Lillies but Marmottan has a larger collection and you will not be disappointed.
