Come face-to-face with Monet’s masterworks in this spectacular, too-often overlooked museum on Paris’ western fringe. It holds the world’s largest collection of works by Claude Monet, including many of his beloved Waterlilies (Nymphéas) as well as the masterpiece "Impression, soleil levant," the painting that gave Impressionism its name. The museum also boasts a comprehensive collection of works by Berthe Morisot, the most important of the female Impressionists.
The stunning collection of Impressionist and Second-Empire art here is well worth the visit, but the building itself and the story behind it make it truly remarkable. You'll visit outside opening hours for a rare opportunity to discover the stately mansion without crowds or lines, with a storyteller who brings to life the compelling tale behind the building and the art.
