Expert of Napoleon's period, Paul Marmottan was a collector who completely transformed his private mansion to make us look back to the old days. Transformed into a museum, this place attracted many donors across time.
The Marmottan-Monet museum is now a reference for every lovers of Monet, Berthe Morisot and other impresionnists. But there is also a motley collection inside: 300 medieval illuminations, Italian and Flemish primitives, and of course, furnitures and works of art of Napoleon's empire.

From what age is the tour recommended?
Marmottan museum can be appreciated by anyone loving art. Some children can focus on a very artistic topic at 8 years old. Otherwise I prefer to recommend this tour for teenagers and adults.
How long is the tour?
A 2 hours tour is enough to see the whole museum. But if you only want to appreciate the collection of Monet's paintings, only one hour is necessary.
Is there a day we cannot visit Marmottan museum with a guide?
Marmottan museum is closed on Mondays and on some public holidays (January 1, May 1, December 25). Also, guides are not allowed in the museum when the entrance is free: every first Sunday of each month and Bastille day (July 14).
Is the museum crowded?
Marmottan museum is generally quiet, due to the distance with central Paris and the fact it is still a museum off the beaten track.
Is this visit wheelchair accesible ?
Yes, Marmottan museum has easy accesses for wheelchairs.
Good to know
There is not much air con in France, including in museums. Don't overdress in summer and get a fan if you can.
As the museum isn't very large upstairs, it is more comfortable to limit the number of participants in case of large groups (15 instead of 25).
