I can't believe I missed this museum the first two times I was in Paris. This is a must for Monet fans. The museum contains other art, but the basement rooms of Monet's work alone are worth the trip. The art is positioned so one can sit at an appropriate distance to get the full benefit of some of Monet's... More

The basement with Monet's pieces in is very impressive and beautiful. The rest of the museum is not as impressive, the lighting is not good for several of the pieces and thus they cannot properly be appreciated. An exhibition on middle age art was interesting but once again, little information and poorly illuminated. No photography is allowed.

Take the time to visit this museum. We took a taxi although I can't remember how much it cost, maybe 30 euros from our hotel. The basement is full of Monet, just lovely! Well worth the money.

FANTASTIC out of the way museum full of Monet in the basement. Lovely Manet upstairs. I was overwhelmed by this gem in the 19th. Not a lot of big crowds either, but then again I was not there in high season. I loved this museum: intimate but FULL of good things to see including "Impression Sunrise" --the painting that set...

a great collection of Monets, and worth the trip (it's off the beaten track) Recommended for serious art lovers - no glitz and glitter.

Situated in a nice suburb some distance from downtown, this small museum probably does not get the attention it deserves. Easy to reach by metro and then a short walk through a park. The downstairs gallery in this converted hunting lodge was designed to display wan amazing collection of Monet works, mostly from his later years at Giverny. Check out... More

This museum is in a private home and the paintings are those of Claude Monet's son. The regular collection had many Monet's I was not familiar with and that was nice, The best part though, is it's current exhibit on the toilettes of the past and old mores vs. new mores.

I first visited the Musee Marmottan when I was a student at the Sorbonne in the '80s, it was my first introduction to the Impressionists and Monet and I was absolutely enchanted and entranced. Some 32 years later that magic is still there... The Marmottan is a somewhat little-known museum in the tranquil Passy quartier and houses the single largest... More

We visited the day before we went to Giverny, and were very pleased with the range of Monets that we saw. The museum is set near a beautiful park, and was not overcrowded.

The exhibition - L'Histoire de La Toilette - on at this lovely museum in the 16th arrondissement when we visited, was an added bonus. It was a delightful collection of images outlining the development of the depiction of women and their "toilette". The permanent collection of Monet, including the Waterlilies, but also many of his other paintings, is always worth... More
