The Musée Marmottan Monet is an art museum mainly dedicated to artist Claude Monet and other works from the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist movements. The Marmottan’s large collection is the result of a substantial donation made by Monet’s son in 1966.

If you want to learn everything there is to know about the art within the Museum, we recommend getting a private tour with a licensed guide, which you can book here .

Among the 100 Monet pieces housed here - which make the Museum the one with the largest Monet collection in the world - the most important is perhaps 1872’s Impression, Sunrise . The reason for the painting’s fame is that it inspired the name of the whole Impressionist movement.

Aside from the numerous Monet canvases, the Marmottan Museum also holds many other pieces by key figures in the Impressionist and Post Impressionist movements, such as Degas, Manet, Pissarro, Renoir, Rodin, Gaugin, Signac, Sisley, and Morisot, and even some Modernist works by Chagall.
