“Wonderful find in pretty neighbood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

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.

“Little known treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

The Marmottan Monet museum is less well known that other illustrious Paris art galleries, but is well worth a visit, especially when there is a good exhibition on. Easy to book tickets from UK and avoid waiting in a queue.

“A hidden treasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

Not visited by the hordes because it's not a national museum, Musee Marmottan features the works of Monet, left to his last direct heir and other impressionist works. It is well worth the 10 euro entrance fee. Situated near a large park within walking distance to the L'Arc de Triomphe this museum gives you the space and time to learn and reflect upon the art it displays. This was one of our favorites of Paris.

“An oasis of calm in a bustling museum filled city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

I've visited here during the week and on a Saturday, both times in the afternoon. There were no queues through the week and only a short queue of about six people on the Saturday. The museum feels calm and peaceful and the impressionist art is beautiful! I personally loved the Berthe Marisot collection, but of course, Monet's work was extremely impressive too. There is so much to see here, including the actual building itself. Definitely worth a visit. I paid for the audio tour and would recommend spending the additional 5€. As a side note, if it's a nice day when you visit, nip into a boulangerie, grab a pastry and sit in the park nearby. It's so idyllic.

“Really all about Monet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

This museum has more Monets than any other. This collection was left to the museum by his son. If you like Monet, this is the place for you.
