“My Favorite Museum in Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

A bit out of the way, but worth every minute, this museum has a wonderful collection of Claude Monet's works along with several of his contemporaries. Museum is well lit and comfortable and the inside is modern. I particularly like the size as its not so overwhelming as the Louvre or the Mentropolitan Museum of Art. And its not crowded!

“A secondary museum”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2012

Marmottan has lost most of its appeal since the greatest paintings of Monet were transfered out to Orangerie -- it still has a few good paintings, and above all the famous "Impression" from which the name "impressionism" emanated.

“One of the great gems of Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2012

For Monet lovers, skip the Orsay and head straight for the Marmottan. You won't be disappointed. On the contrary, some people who don't know what to expect are simply overwhelmed by the wealth of Impressionist works, especially Monet.Small. manageable in size and sublime in content.
