If you love fine art and Impressionism, the Musée Marmottan Monet is for you! Here's what you need to know to prepare for your visit to the museum.

Less well known than the Musée d'Orsay or the Musée de l'Orangerie, the Musée Marmottan Monet is also home to many Impressionist treasures. Nestled in the 16th arrondissement, near the Ranelagh Gardens, this temple to art honors Claude Monet, and many of his fellow 19th-century painters... But that's not all! This museum is full of surprises, so come and discover them.

Like the Musée Cognacq-Jay, the Musée Marmottan Monet was the brainchild of a collector with a passion for art. Paul Marmottan was an art historian born in 1856. His first taste was for the Empire style, which he used to redecorate and furnish his mansion on Avenue Raphaël. By enlarging the house, Paul was able to exhibit the collections of his father, who was fascinated by the Middle Ages and Renaissance painters.

On his death, without an heir, Paul bequeathed the entire estate to theAcadémie des Beaux-Arts, which transformed the mansion into a museum in 1934. Works by artists of the second half of the 19th century gradually found their place within these walls. Several bequests and donations enriched the collections. These included the bequest from Michel Monet, the youngest son of the famous painter. He donated many of his father's works to the museum. Today, the Musée Marmottan Monet boasts the largest collection of works and objects belonging to or created by Claude Monet.

The institution houses numerous paintings, sculptures, illuminations, stained glass and photographs, including works by Berthe Morisot, Jean Fouquet, Eugène Boudin, Paul Gauguin, Giovanni Benzoni, Édouard Manet, François Xavier Fabre, Gustave Caillebotte, Jean-Baptiste Camille Corot, Marc Chagall...
