The sheer size of the Water Lilies was amazing. It covers two entire rooms. On this rainy Wednesday morning though, the crowds were too large to fully enjoy the piece. Downstairs is a full sampling of French Impressionist artwork which should not be missed.

This is a wonderful exhibit of some of Monet's waterlilies but you need to get there very early before the crowds to fully experience it.

My favorite thing to do is stroll through the park from the Louvre to the Museum (about 15 - 20 mins). Then to simply sit in the rooms with these beautiful pieces by Monet is time well spent.

The backbone of this museum is the Monet Water Lilies but this museum has so many other wonderful paintings to offer. It is a short walk through the Tuilleries Garden or across the street from the Place De La Concorde. If you plan on visiting several museums get a museum pass to skip the lines.

A really beautiful experience...seeing the Monet waterlilly paintings. The bookstore is excellent . The orange trees were outside this late spring day... I suppose they move them in in the winter..but where ?

I loved the set up for Monet's Water Lily Pond painting, oval, white, relaxing rooms, where you could sit and just appreciate the beauty of his work. More art work is downstairs, Picasso, Renoir...many more.

it is unlikely that you will find a Monet collection like this elsewhere. It is also displayed in a way that allows you to just sit and look. Not a massive gallery which is great. You can feel a bit underground but I guess that is to stop light affecting the paintings

A fabulous museum with the Monet's you can't resist. Sit, relax and wonder at this fabulous space where you can lose your tensions and marvel at the serenity created here. Allow yourself a little extra time ..... you'll want to linger.

This is one of my favorite museums in Paris. I'm a Monet and impressionist fan so you'll like it if this artist and others resonate with you. It's small enough that it doesn't take hours to see and you can spend the entire day soaking up the art if you'd like. Like the location as well. Stroll through the Tuileries,... More

Can you imagine a 360 degree mural of Monet's water lilies? You will fend them there. There is other art, of course, but that's what I came to see.
