Home to the largest collection of Monet's works in the world.
A former hunting lodge in the heart of the 16th arrondissement, the Musée Marmottan Monet is worth a visit if only for its charming exterior. Add to that an exhibition of a hundred impressionist masterpieces drawn entirely from private collections, and the museum becomes a must-see for any visitor to Paris.
Having started life as a Duke's hunting lodge, then acquired by Jules Marmottan in 1882 as a space to display his private collection of decorative arts, the Musée Marmottan was able to grow as an art gallery thanks to several genrous donations in the second half of the twentieth century. The Museum is now the largest collection of Monet's artworks in the world, including highlights such as Impression, Soleil levant and several of his Nymphéas. Visitors can also see several beautiful pieces by Berthe Morisot and others from the Impressionist movement.
