One reason to come here is to admire a beautiful mansion from another era; another is to look at the art. The peaceful neighborhood around La Muette is in itself a destination for the Parisian tourist who needs a respite from the concrete jungle. Although this museum is often described as a destination for fans of impressionism, the bulk of... More

Best collection of paintings by Claude Monet in the world. This collection never travels. You can only see these paintings here. If you are an art lover in Paris you must visit the Musee Matmottan Monet. No photography allow. You can only see these amazing work here. Many of the painting are from the end of his career. They were... More

The Marmottan is a refreshing change of pace from the often overcrowded Louvre, Orsay, and Orangerie; we didn't have to wait to get in, and found the setting peaceful and altogether delightful. The Monet gallery in the basement is spacious and well-lit, and has a wonderful selection of his paintings, including the pathbreaking "Impression, soleil levant" of 1874...also some of... More

It's takem me years to get to this lovely museum! Wish I had done it sooner but so glad I did. If you want to see some beautiful art and just can't face the Louvre or d'Orsay, get yourself to this gem. It's a bit out of the way but so worthwhile!

We visited this museum with difficulty as were initially unable to find a taxi driver that could locate it despite showing them a map with the name marked on it!!! This place is amazing, with the largest Monet collection in the world ( allegedly!) Housed in a small stately home it is well worth a visit. The purpose built extension... More

Not far off the Metro line, this is a fantastic museum. One Sunday we had a bit of time before a dinner and we found our way here for a Monet exhibit. The museum was about to close so we decided to just visit the gift shop and come back. Happily we did. Take the audio guide. It gives you... More

This is a great museum for impressionism and there are several murals, painting by Monet. It is an old mansion that is out of the way and not very crowded. A great find.

A museum of two halves, downstairs includes some of Monet's better-known masterpieces while upstairs is less interesting unless you like Napoléana. There is also a room devoted to some interesting Medieval devotional art and another to Berthe Morisot, although her best work is elsewhere. It's a much more pleasant museum to visit than many others in Paris (fewer crowds, closer... More

This museum is small but packet with superb art. The Monet wing is an outstanding complement to the installation at L'Orangerie. I only regret that it took us about five visits to Paris before including it on our itinerary.
