If you are a Monet fan, the largest collection is on the Marmottan. Nice house and a great place to see some great works. The current exhibition explores Monet, Hodler and Munch as contemporaries who dealt with much of the same elements, styles and subjects.

This museum was one of the highlights of our Paris trip. It had many great paintings and was not busy at the same time! We saw paintings by Monet we always wanted to see, as well as many wonderful paintings that were totally new to us. Especially the Morisot paintings were stunning. A must visit for any fan of Impressionism

Claims to have a lot of Monet, which it does, but they are not really his first class collection. Some very nice pieces here otherwise that make it worth a trip if you are on that side of Paris. I thought there were way too many people in the Munchen special exhibit and the passage ways were so narrow that... More

Museum devoted to Monet and colleagues. Quite a small museum, well set out with some nice exhibitions. Tricky to get to, best to go by bus or walk from metro. If you like impressionist paintings this museum is not to be missed.

While there is plenty of art not related to Monet, this museum has an entire floor devoted to the artist, and is a must visit for anyone who likes his work.

It's the largest collection of Monet on earth. What further recommendation does anyone need? OK, it's also in a lovely area in a beautiful old mansion -- with lots of exquisite furniture to view along with the Monets.

This private home contains fascinating art and furniture with Monet's "Nenuphar" ( Water Lilly) series in the basement. A gem, small, and off the beaten path, located in a tony residential neighborhood with a park.Good shopping and cafes nearby in Passy.

We had a small wait in line, I could not find where to buy tickets in advance, but clearly it is possible because some people showed up with tickets and went straight in. The best part of the museum is the basement with all the water lilies. The house is gorgeous. It is a bit out from most of the... More

One of our favorite places we visited. More Monet's than you can shake a stick at. And "Impression Sunrise" is so stunning in person that you can see how it sparked it an entire artistic movement.

Even though hidden and not as popular a name as the Louvre. This is a hidden gem in Paris. We visited the museum in June 2012, getting a little lost in the neighbourhood along the way to find it. There ar so many beautiful portraits of Monet's. This museum was a old mansion and a relative decided to house his... More
