The Marmottan Museum

Last Sunday, my roommate and I took the metro out to the 16th arrondissment to go to the Marmottan Museum. We arrived right when it opened at 10am and explored the museum. The Marmottan holds one of the largest collections of Monet paintings, many of the Nympheas or water lilies. The museum also holds a temporary exhibition of modern art by Marie Laurencin. The inside of the museum looks like an old aristocratic house with ornate doors, windows, and furniture. The art complements the interior design of the museum to showcase the works in a pleasing way. After we finished looking at the paintings, we went to the gift shop. They had beautiful post-cards of the Monet paintings and magnets and posters of the Nympheas.

This is a picture of Nympheas by Monet, displayed at the Marmottan Museum.
