If you plan to see Monet's house and garden in Giverny, Musee Marmottan is a must to see in advance. While the scale of Water Lilies is impressive at l'Orangerie, Monet's paintings at Marmottan are exquisite. While this museum is a little off the beaten path, it is not difficult by Metro - either the Boulainvilliers or La Muette stop... More

Beautiful paintings of Monet and the history of his life....also some Renoir, Morisot and others. Very affordable museum....just a little out of way but easy to find. On your way, stop at Trocadéro!

For a second-rank Paris museum, the Marmottan has quite a nice collection of works by Berthe Morrisot, and a very good cross-section of Claude Monet works, with many studies or smaller paintings of his Giverney water-lilies. The present temporary exhibition focuses on Impression: Sunrise, the Monet painting of Le Havre harbor which gave the Impressionist movement its name. The exhibit... More

Take the Metro to the Mouette station. From there, signs will show you the way. After entering the grand house, you see art from the time of Napoleon. The best part is upstairs where the paintings of Berthe Morisot and Claude Monet are. The museum has the biggest collections of each of these painters. There are paintings of Monet with... More

A gem of a museum, that often gets overlooked by visitors because its tucked away in the the 16eme. Great exhibition on now -- Monet: Impression Soleil Levant. A must see if you're a fan of impressionism. The permanent collection is stunning

Do not miss this museum in the 16th arrondesmont. Far out but you will not be disappointed with the special show on Monet and the permanent Monet collection. Loads of never before seen Monets without the crowds at the major museums.

Worth the trip just to see "Impression Sunrise". The other Monets are fabulous. Don't forget to go upstairs to see the Morrissot,etc.
