“Lots of Impressionists, far, too far off the beaten path.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

I had not visited this museum, so I made the effort, it wasn't a good idea. We walked way farther than I was happy to do, missed many of the paintings I went to see (they were on loan). Unless you're really tired of what the Jeu de Paume and the Musee D'Orsay have, skip this one. Be prepared to either spend too much on transportation or walk far too much to get to it.

“Awestruck”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The Marmottan is a wonderful, human-sized museum with the most incredible collection of impressionists paintings. A wall just dedicated to Monet's Waterlilies series will mesmerize you. A sheer treat for the eyes!

“Great little museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

It was a smaller museum with some great paintings and without the long lines at some of the other larger places.

“all things monet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is an incredibly comprehensive collection of Monet paintings. You will learn so much about his creative process, his artistic development and, surrounded by so many of his works, feel as if you are actually breathing in the beauty of his art. This museum can change you at a deep level.
There was another exhibit consisting of northern European art which simply made me appreciate Monet even more.

“Monet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2013

it's always nice to see Monet's work from time to time in a very nice setting. The museum is small and don't take to much time
