  • Beautifully displayed artwork of impressionist masters both well known and some lesser known but important artists of the time. Busy but not impossibly overcrowded as some museums can be. Mediocre...

  • Cute museum. 1 story reserved for Monet's exhibition and another reserved for other artwork (like Picasso and Renoir etc.). Food is available on site. For those who want to see Monet's paintings: The exhibition is supposed to be observed IN SILENCE! Most visitors do NOT respect this, and there is a lot of chatter (it's even written on the wall to please respect Monet's wish to be quiet!), therefore 4 stars.
  • Not the biggest museum I’ve visited, but nicely laid out and had some gorgeous pieces of art. The Monet meditation rooms are lovely. If only people in those rooms read the signs that suggest keeping quiet…
