  • In a beautiful neighborhood this little jewel of a museum has a wonderful Monet Collection. There two famous paintings on loan which was a disappointment but the bonus of Morisot’s paintings gave us a lift. The audio tour could have included a few more pieces. The gift shop was exceptional but the lack of air conditioning shortened the amount of time one might spend there. Thankfully it was cool where the Monet’s were housed!
  • We visited this museum the last time a bit after it opened about 45 years ago if I got my facts straight. We were fans of the impressionist style then and are even more so now; especially Monet. If you are a fan this is a must see! The have added a lower floor that provides the perfect setting for viewing these wonderful works of art. It is located well off the beaten path but well worth the time and effort.
  • Beautiful collection of Monet’s artwork. Many pieces by other artists as well. Getting there we took the metro and then it was a nice quiet walk to the museum, with a park near by. The museum was far less busy than other museums I’ve been to in Paris (in July), so if you’d like to take your time and have almost uninterrupted viewing I would recommend this place. I was a little disappointed by the audio tour, when there was commentary it was great but so many piece didn’t have an audio component so it felt like we didn’t get to use it as much as we would have liked to. The museum is a perfect afternoon activity. We liked that it didn’t take all day and you don’t get as overwhelmed by all the prices. Nice variety of artists.
  • Difficult to rate this well after visiting D’Orsay and l’orangerie. About 30 pieces of Monet’s works here on view - many appear to the sketches or studies for his master pieces (which makes sense as these were kept and then eventually donated to the museum from his son). Helpful if you are interested in the originals and technical aspects of how he created his work. Less engaging for the casual observer.
  • This is my second visit to this museum. It is moderate in size and well organized. I especially like museums such as this because I can see things thoroughly without becoming exhausted. Also because it is a bit out of the way, it is not overrun with people. Of course the Monet collection is great but I also really enjoyed the. Morisot works,
