A wonderful museum of Impressionism in a quiet setting. It’s not too overwhelming and there are no massive tour groups, which was a welcomed break. My personal favorite when visiting Paris.
Impossible to explain how they could fit so many Monet masterpieces and other fantastic impressionist artists and tie them together through their art and relationships. Parking was easy. Even though it's small compared to other museums and galleries give yourself minimum 3hrs to let your eyes and senses savor the colors and details that gently take you back in time.
This is a must see museum. It is well done with a flow that works. As it’s off the beaten path, it’s not as busy as other museums. Truly a wonderful artist that offers amazing views from his mind
Breathtaking. Marvelous. Memorable. The display of Monet masterpieces is beyond description. Curated in a cool and quiet space below the main floor, it's a perfectly modeled space to thoughtfully and completely revel in the works of Claude Monet. Patrons are nearly silent as the artwork subsumes any need for words or chatter. The spacing given to each piece allows them to breathe, yet they all tie together as one. It's simply the best art museum experience of my life. The upper floors of the impressive home contain a vast display of masters from other artists. Stepping thru from room to room gives one a sense of what it must have been like hundreds of years ago to live in a nobleman's Parisian home. This is a must see for any visit to Paris.
The perfect place to visit a solid collection of Claude Monet's work. Contains a few renditions of his Nympheas series. Good audio guide. Really enjoyed this museum even though it's a bit out of the way.
