Monceau is a station on Paris Métro Line 2 near the Parc Monceau on the border of the 8th and 17th arrondissement of Paris.

Rotunda, Parc Monceau, built as part of the Barrière de Chartres of the Wall of the Farmers-General

The station was opened on 7 October 1902 as part of the extension of line 2 from Étoile to Anvers. The station and the park derive their name from a village in this area that was annexed by Paris in 1860. The Barrière de Chartres, a gate built in 1790 for the collection of taxation as part of the Wall of the Farmers-General, was at the same location.

Close to Parc Monceau is the Musée Cernuschi (Asian art music) and the Musée Nissim de Camondo (museum of furniture and other household furnishings), and Musée national Jean-Jacques Henner (dedicated to the works of painter Jean-Jacques Henner).
