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).

All the spots, away from the crowds

We wanted to let you know what a terrific time we had with Inge last Thursday. She had just the right tone and approach with our 8 year old son and made our visit to the Louvre enjoyable and achievable. We all feel it was a highlight of our trip, which is funny since we weren't originally going to even go to the Louvre because of the crowds. But Inge just took us right on through and placed us in all the right spots.
