Tours at the Musée Marmottan-Monet

Impressionism and Beyond

Musée Marmottan: Monet, Impressionism and Beyond

1.5-hour tour.

Please note that as of summer 2014 this tour is no longer available.


Because the Marmottan boasts the largest collection of Monet paintings in the world, it remains the Paris mecca for many of his devoted fans. But the museum is really three significant collections in one: 1) Napoleonic art, furniture and objets d'art; 2) medieval sculpture and manuscripts; 3) Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. This tour explores all three parts of this intimate museum, but with a particular focus on Monet. We follow his development from Impression, Soleil Levant—the painting that earned the movement its (originally derogatory) name, to his late waterlily canvases. These divine hymns to color are installed in a special chapel-like circular gallery, an aesthetic highlight for many visitors to Paris.

Rates. €80 for individuals, or €70 per person for parties of two or more. Includes price of admission. €20 surcharge to guarantee that your party has a one-on-one tour with your guide, without other parties. (No tour, however, will ever be larger than four people).

It Made the Best of Our Time at the Grand Palais

"Having a friend in Paris who will help you skip the long line at any exhibit or museum is only half the fun of working with Paris Muse. The best part is having a knowledgeable guide whose insights add immeasurably to the experience. Our recent tour of the Matisse-Picasso exhibit at the Grand Palais would not have been the same without Ellen's help. Her ability to interpret the exhibit, while also welcoming our opinions, not to mention her sure-footed route through the show and around the crowds, made the best of our time and added tremendously to the experience. We almost hate saying nice things about Paris Muse....we'd like to keep the secret to ourselves!"
