Monet's paintings = amazing!

I'd call this a 'bite sized' museum in comparison to the likes of the Louvre etc. If you want to sample some art, but not go crazy I would recommend this spot. In my opinion... read more

How lucky me and my French friend felt to have visited this stunning art gallery/museum. It is stuffed full of impressionist art as well as very high quality French Napoleonic furniture. The museum is situated in a former 'hunting lodge' which has been aggrandised to make a beautiful residence on the edge of the city. The works of art are... More

Can't believe that I only heard about this museum whilst in Paris this year. It's been open for 20 years now and is absolutely fabulous if you are a Monet lover. I counted 39

Great and overwhelming display of Monet's works on lower level including some of his masterpieces. Beautifully displayed in a wonderful setting to sit or stand and enjoy and absorb a master of impressionist art. We were enthralled and stayed and stayed and stayed and left only because we had to. Remainder of museum is interesting, especially the Berthe Morisot

I had not heard of this museum until my most recent visit. We had just visited the Orangerie and then the Musee D'Orsay and we were tired but decided to ride the Metro out to Passy to view this museum - the best decision, it is a wonderful museum if you love Monet's art. There was no queue when we... More

Second visit. Wish I could have gone a bit later in the month when the Pissarro exhibition starts. Amazing furniture on display as well as ceramics to look out for. Lovely Morisot collection, plenty of early 19th century landscapes and portraits.

If you love Monet's art you will love this myseum. Monet's only son, Michael gave his father's paintings to this museum and they will take your brath away when you get to the bottom of the stairs and there they are. Truly a fabulous collection of his work.

There are plenty of Musees in Paris, but this one is smaller, more manageable and houses some wonderful pieces, not least some gorgeous Monet Nympheas (Water Lilies) beautifully hung in a lower ground floor where you can sit and admire the fabulous colours in relative comfort. Musee d'Orsay has Impressionism in spades, but this collection of Monet's works came from... More

For the traveler who does not wish to be overloaded with art and museums, this is the perfect cultural attraction. It's an amazing opportunity to see some stunning Monet's mainly based on his garden at Giverny but also some London fog scenes. I have long been a Monet fan and was enthralled to see this collection - the colours are... More

This is a great museum to visit. You do not have to fight the crowds and you can walk thru and enjoy the wonderful art at a leisurely pace. One of my very favorite places to visit.
