  • This one-of-a-kind building is the ideal place to view the Monet works that cover the curved, flowing walls as well as the works of other impressionist and post-impressionist artists.  more »
  • Monet exhibit is very good. Huge paintings in a very special setting. No waiting using the museum pass.  more »
  • I have fulfilled the dream of seeing the murals that he painted Monet. A beauty amazing, why wait for a life learns to view it. The Impressionist room is in the basement of an extraordinary level, with works by Renoir, Cézanne, Pizzarro, Modigliani and Picasso among many others is a museum that should not see any lover of Impressionist art

  • 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
