Upon entering this regal mansion you are catapulted into Paris of 100+ years ago. The collection of Monet, Moriset, and various friends are stunningly presented in an informal setting. The basement has rotating shows and is modern but the upper floors feel like you have stepped into royalty for dinner and are perusing the paintings before sitting down. After being... More

I would highly recommend Musee Marmottan for anyone who enjoys Monet and Impressionist paintings. There are two floors of Impressionist paintings and a very large selection of Monets to view. I would highly recommend this museum.

Visiting Paris without getting in touch with Monet seems impossible. If you want to immerse yourself in his art go to Musée Marmottan Monet. BE EARLY or buy in advance. The queue is long if you don't The art is wonderful, after visiting the Orangerie it was even more impressive. Seeing some pieces unfinished it gives a good impression of... More

A terrific collection of Monet paintings, off the normal tourist track. Purchasing tickets in advance can save a lot of time waiting in line; we got there at opening, and walked right in, past maybe 50 people waiting to buy tickets.

Maybe it was due to heavy rain, but the day we visited, it was necessary to queue for over an hour to get in. We've been before without any queue so it's my thoughts that it was the rain made everyone go there at the same time. If you see a queue do be patient it's well worth it. On... More

Musée Marmottan Monet ordinarily houses the largest collections in the world of paintings by Monet and Morisot. But, to mark its 80th anniversary, it has assembled a large collection of other Impressionist paintings as well, borrowing primarily from private collectors. So, this is a unique chance to see many of these paintings. It may be possible to purchase tickets on... More

Though its not included in the Paris Passport, this private collection in a beautiful home is worth a visit if you like impressionist art. It will only be an hour or two for the full visit but it feels very special. A hidden gem!

The Musée Marmottan Monet is a small treasure trove of art in one of the most art-loaded cities in the world. Any one of the permanent collections is worth a visit for its own sake. The illuminations collection is amazing as is the collection from the First Empire. But, the collections of Claude Monet and Berthe Morisot are ultimately the... More

This was my second attempt to get to this museum. I tried one very wet morning to get in but everyone else had the same idea and I couldn't be bothered waiting. But yesterday I went on a beautiful sunny day and there was no queue. An excellent museum, lots of brilliant works of art. A very pleasant way to... More

This visit was my first to the Museum Marmaton Monet, but it won't be my last. I immediately liked the museum and its architecture. The rooms of the museum are lavishly decorated and one could image what it had been like as a private house. The impressionist exhibition was hung in the relatively small rooms on the ground floor.
