try to enjoy an early morning arrival at this pleasant little museum boasting a variety of ad hoc exhibitions with material from the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay and others.

I enjoyed the large Monet 'Les Nympheas' - no photographs though which was disappointing. The room in which the giant panels are displayed is perfect. The rest of the museum was a little disappointing but that is probably just down to artistic taste.

If you are a lover of the art and of the impressionists, you need to go and see for yourself, it is huge in every sense of the term!

This is a smaller museum, but we came to look at some of the larget Monet water lily collections. It is well worth it. So beautiful and serene.

We took our teenager here, the first art gallery she has been old enough to appreciate. Not too many paintings or artists. A good intro to Monet and Cezanne.

It hard to explain, but it was a spiritual experience sitting quietly, amidst the hubbub, surrounded, engulfed by and embedded in Monet's liquid, blue-green luminescent images.

Visited this late on an afternoon and not an 'arty' type was impressed with all the paintings in this museum, however, on it's own this could seem an expensive museum to visit at 9.50 euros, better looking for a deal with the Musee D'Orsay

If you like Monet, well, this is a small diamond, in the fantastic Paris. Having it separate from Louvre may seem strange, but it deserve a separate space and a more quiet environment. I like this place!

If you have a Museum Pass, don't miss this museum. If not, I'm not sure it is worth it, especially given the Impressionist collection as the d'Orsay. However, if you have an hour to spare...

Many paintings I had never seen before of these two masters. It's a bit out of the way, but I will return again on my next Paris visit...
