No lines, no crowds: perfect! It's easy to access by subway. The Monet paintings are fantastic. Strongly recommend a visit

This great little museum showcases a lot of Monet's paintings but what I most appreciated was the side by side by side layout of the same object to really highlight how the light and time of day impacted how Monet depicted that object.

"Hidden gem" is a cliché so I'll avoid that. :) Wonderfully-sized museum -- Was able to check it out with two young (10 and 8 yrs old) kids in tow relatively quickly. The scope of the Monet works at this museum was fantastic -- sketches/caricatures that he had done, paintings of Monet by his friends/contemporaries, and many works from over... More

We visited on a Thursday afternoon around 2pm in July (after the special exhibit). There were no lines and no crowds. Some of the areas were under renovation. Nevertheless, the artwork on the lower level is stunning including Soleil Levant, the piece to give Impressionism its name. It is unbelievably beautiful in person. Nice gift shop with a good selection... More

A beautiful quiet museum near the Eiffel tower with 60+ Monets in a beautiful gallery which is not crowded. Forget fighting through the Musee d'Orsay come here first and actually have the space to stand back and view the pictures properly not through the back of people's heads. On the way stop off at the Boulangerie and Patisserie au Flute... More

This is a lovely museum in a non-touristy neighborhood. The collection of Monet paintings is incredible (particularly the room with the different water lily paintings), and the building itself is beautiful and charming. A must for any fans of the Impressionists!

We found our way there easily by Metro but be warned....there is likely to be a queue for entry and we regretted not buying a lunch/snack for eating on the queue as there is no coffee shop inside just a gift shop. However that was our only complaint....we loved the works and displays and sure there were some tour guides... More

It was easy to reach by metro and a stroll through a park and I was there. An absolutely superb small museum with an exquisite collection of particularly stunning work by Claude Monet and Berthe Morisot. In fact according to the museum they have the world's largest collection of works by Monet! What I most appreciated was the lack of... More

If you like Impressionists, you'll love the Marmottan. A fantastic collection of the work of Monet and others housed in a wonderful French mansion. The room with the Water Lily collection is a highlight... a real treat to see so many canvasses next to one another so one can compare and contrast them. The exhibition Prive in 2014 was outstanding.... More

My friend and I waited in the rain this past Sunday afternoon. Once inside and dry we forgot about being wet. What a great showing of art through out the beautifully decorated former hunting lodge. If ever in the area or want something to do on a rainy day this will not disappoint.
