Tours at the Musée Marmottan-Monet

Impressionism and Beyond

Musée Marmottan: Monet, Impressionism and Beyond

1.5-hour tour.
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).

Truly a Great Asset

My husband and I had the most delightful Louvre tour yesterday with Elisa. Our time spent with Elisa was perfect. She was knowledgeable about the art and very enthusiastic about our individual learning. It was one of the highlights of our trip to Paris and we want to thank you for providing such a professional and personable young woman as our guide. She is truly a great asset to your company and we will certainly recommend Paris Muse to our friends who will be traveling to Paris.
