You can take the metro to La Muette and reach the "Musée Marmottan Monet" by a pleasant walk through a small park. We visited while there is a temporary exhibition of Camille Pissaro paintings which runs until 2nd July 2017. This alone was worth the entrance fee. Downstairs there is a room full of Claude Monet's famous waterlilies and upstairs... More

My wife loved this museum. In her top three after D orsay and Rodin. In a different but unique part of Paris near a nice park. Be sure to get the audio guide.

I love this museum. Its small and inimate and jam packed with Monets you don't typically see. Its a nice complement to Giverney.

This is one of my favourite museums in Paris, first because it is mostly about Monet et second because it is rarely overcrowded. Pick an early or a late hour and you can have the nympheas almost to yourself! Or stand in front of Impression Soleil Levant forever...

We went close to the museum by mtro and it was a nice little walk along a pretty park, nice to sit down. The Museum itself is not to big but an ablolutely "must" for Monet-lovers

Musee Marmottan is the perfect size art museum. It has space for special exhibits--the current one is of Camille Pissarro. It is excellent. The lower level has an extensive collection of Monet's work. Some of the pieces show early attempts at water lillies and other subjects. These may not be his best works but they are interesting and intriguing nonetheless.... More

The Metro stop on the outskirts of Paris is La Muette. This museum is not mobbed with people - a good thing - but has a unique collection in a beautiful setting and is certainly worth a visit. The Marmonttan work dates from the 17th century. There is a world class collection of works by Berthe Morisot. And the "largest... More

Most travellers don't get to this museum - and I, for one, am grateful. You can walk around the incredible Impressionist art, including an entire room of Monet's lovely flowers, without the crowds. It's in a residential neighborhood but near the Metro stop are a couple of good cafes for a bite.

I was jet lagged when I visited but the museum is in a very pretty mansion reminiscent of the Frick. An impressive numbers of Monets and quite a diverse set of other mainly French paintings.

Thank Alix M
