It's a little out of the way, but so worth going there. You should plan it on the day you go to the Eiffel Tower. The house is gorgeous and the paintings are the most beautiful, mostly Impressionists. Monet and Morisot especially. Google images. You'll be blown away.

If Monet's work is your thing then a visit here is a must. Buy tickets in advance if you can only for the fact that they only had one person working when they opened at 10am and even though we were perhaps 5th or 6th in line it still was a slow process, but not a show stopper. A great... More

A great experience for any lover of the impressionists. Intimate, quiet and unhurried. You can linger over up close brushstrokes or take in whole paintings with clear views from the benches.

We enjoyed our visit to this quiet museum very much. It's a bit off the beaten path, but it's worth the extra effort to get there. The highlight, of course, is the collection of Monets displayed in a perfect setting, with plenty of room for viewing them from different perspectives. The day we visited, there were few other people there,... More

My Parisian friend who works at the Louvre recommended I check out Musee Marmottan, and I was glad I did. I have discovered the artistry of Berthe Morisot and more should know her beautiful paintings. Also Monet, Munch and Hodler - lots to see and was fairly easy to get to by Metro. Only 11 Euros, so worth going to... More

This is an excellent museum full of Monet's paints, palettes and masterpieces. You get a chill realizing you are actually seeing the paints he used!

My wife discovered that this smaller museum was full of impressionist paintings, so we took the Metro and walked a bit - the museum is a slow 15 minute walk from the stop. We really enjoyed ourselves! I can't quite figure out how they did it, but they completely hollowed out the basement of this building into a beautiful exhibit... More

We saw an excellent exhibit of Hodler, Munch and Monet paintings. Their permanent exhibits include quite a few works by Berthe Morisot. Text in all the exhibits is good and illuminating.

We have visited this museum in the past but really loved the special Holder, Munch and Monet exhibit - worth the visit and worth the auidio guide of 3 euros. The next floor is full of wonderful Monets take your breath away. The museum is in an old fishing lodge and the Monets were donated by Jules Monet so they... More

Great place to see a lot of Monet's paintings, although a large part of them are water lilies. Just a few non-nature themed works. Don't forget to visit the upstairs, for female impressionist Berthe's work. The special exhibit gave some interesting comparisons between Hodler, Monet and Munch and shows one or two real gems!
