Fabulous Monet collection with some beautiful works by Berthe Morisot. Easy to get to by the #63 bus and or the metro. We also walked back to the Rive Gauche from the museum. It reminded us of the Phillips Gallery in Washington DC with its size and do-ability. No camera pictures allowed.

A large (largest?) collection of Monet works and other impressionist art in a beautiful setting. Other collections of stained glass and other artefacts have arrived since I first came here to make it a more varied visit, but being slightly away from other better known galleries and museums means it's not usually too busy and you can take your time,...

A very manageable museum, specializing in impressionist art. (Plus they also have Napoleon's bed -- So SHORT!) I learned about impressionist artists I hadn't known, and then was delighted to spot their work in other museums later in our trip. This museum is a bit out of the way, but worth the adventure.

Off the tourist path, but so worth a visit. The Monet collection alone is worth it, but you will discover a lot more upstairs. Has more Monet's than anywhere else. Quiet, not busy. Skip the Louvre and come here. Only takes about an hour to see it. But you may be enthralled by the Monet's and just sit and look.

This was a beautiful museum. I went for the Monet's, but enjoyed the other artwork and artifacts too. It was very quiet on the August day I went. I took a bus out to the museum (the Paris bus system is very easy!) and then walked back to find some Eiffel Tower views.

Great 18th and 19th century paintings, with Claude Monet as the main artist on display. Besides The focus on The impressionist movement, the museum features several paintings from the 18th and early 19th century, which pave the way for the later movements. The colours of the impressionist paintings and the audio-guides make it pleasant for teenagers.

Lovely museum with over 100 works by Monet, including 94 oils. There are other Impressionist works as well. Location is an issue, as it's quite a haul from most other sites.

Not on everyone's list of attractions in Paris but if, like me, you are a follower of the impressionists then this is the place to visit in West Paris. Not easy to find but persevere and you will be rewarded with all the glories of Monet's genius and lots more besides.

This was a return visit after about 10 years to this most select corner of the west end of central Paris. The nearest Metro stop is La Muette on Line 9 then its a walk under the trees of a pleasant park down to the museum. The logical route around the building was disrupted due to some rearrangements ongoing during... More
