This museum has the largest Monet collection of them all in a wonderful and elegant mansion and best of all it is off the beaten path. It is in a residential neighborhood where the bus tours and masses of tourists don't come which makes this a very pleasant place to visit. In addition to over 100 Monet paintings there are... More

I probably expected too much of the Marmottan also called the Monet Museum but still : 1- they make you wait even if there is nobody, still do not understand why??? 2- when you know that Monet loved the light, the sunshine and large windows, I never imagine they would have the nerve to have this collection of paintings...in the...

This is a excellent collection of Impressionist and other art. Buy a ticket in advance to avoid to the queue at the Museum.

I went during the extended hours on thursdays and EVERYONE had the same idea, it was absolutely jam packed. the paintings and the halls and rooms are beautiful and I esp. liked the monet paintings downstairs but upstairs in the exhibit hall was monstrously crowded and you could not enjoy the art for all the jostling

I wanted to see Monet´s Sunrise but when i got to this lovely museum, a little far from the beaten track, was muchh much more. And not only paintings but also furniture fantastically displayed. Plus the staff is really nice and friendly, wich makes a difference in Paris too. Another discovery was the surrounding area, really pleasant neighborhood.

It is a mansion and a museum. Lots of Monets and contemporaries. A little out of the way, but worth the effort for any Monet fan. Don't miss a trip to Giverny if you can get there either.

Take the time to visit the Marmottan and the pretty area of Passay while you do. Good restaurants close to the metro stop (La Muette) But the Monet's are what you come to see. The collection owned by his son and given to the public. Lots are late paintings and are not ones everyone knows. See the original "Impression" that... More

This museum has the largest Monet collection of them all in a wonderful and elegant mansion. Because the museum is located near the Bois de Bologne, there are no crowds and in addition to the Monets (over 100 of them), there are other impressionists represented, as well.

This is a jewel of a museum and one that should not be missed if you like Impressionistic painting. We went when they had an exhibit of 100 impressions paintings from private collections. It was wonderful. We just didn't have time to spend as long as we needed because the museum closed about 2 hours after we arrived. We will... More

We loved the walk through the park to the museum and loved the museum. A great addition to our trip after seeing the Orangerie, the Orsay and Giverny.
