  • The Museum was built to house the huge panels that Monet painted at the end of your life in the gardens of Giverny. Here one can admire and understand how much Monet chased perfection for portraying on screen colors so different that I could see throughout the day and throughout the seasons in your House at Giverny--a genius in search of perfection. Magnificent!

  • Great small museum without crowds or long lines that pairs well with a morning at Musee D’Orsay. Included in the Museum Pass. Seeing the rooms filled with wall length water lily paintings by Monet is ...  more »
  • If you don't know them, she must necessarily have seen the water lilies, the special hanging of large images can dip one in the water lily ponds. Class

  • Truly stunning. You just have to see not only the museum but a small lake close and picnic area as well as enjoy a lakeside environment. There are also several trees along sidewalks that you can enjoy and walk through. The museum is absolutely stunning with the water lilies paintings. It was a unique experience.
  • The Location: Metro #1, 8 & 12, "Concorde". About few minutes walk to the museum. The Admission: 9 euro (included in the museum pass) This entirely refurbished museum houses Monet's Waterlilies and over 144 paintings! The Waterlilies has own special viewing room. The painting is just beautiful~ The size of the painting, the detail of the painting.... impressive!!
  • Absolutely loved this museum. It was very calm/relaxing inside compared with other museums and some great pieces of impressionist/post-impressionist art (probably not somewhere to go if you do not like these styles). Monet’s Waterlilies are spectacular. We were able to get 2-for-1 entry with our Eurostar tickets.
  • We love this museum! It’s just the right size for my art loving 3 year old to enjoy without being too overwhelming. The park and gardens outside were a plus.
  • One floor is just the water lilies painting. You either love it or think has had done better works. For those on limited budget or time, skip this museum, there are better. 30-60mins is plenty of time here. Included with museum pass
