I didnt realise that the Clos wasnt part of the House and Gardens until I came here to write a review. Its closeby and definitely worth a look. We could hear a loud cacophony of sound while we were walking around the gardens and we wondered what it was. Surprisingly, it the small frogs in the Clos. They make a... More

Everything was wonderful. We loved everything about the gardens and the house. Since 500,000 people visit a year I guess their a reason. It is so beautiful

I discovered several American Impressionists that I had never seen before and really enjoyed that part of the exhibition, but the permanent collection was very disappointing. If the American collection had not been there, there would have been no point in going to the museum.

This review should, ideally be read alongside my review of Monet's House & Garden, where I am critical of the ticketting & guiding system. We reached this garden through a drab underpass beneath the road that separates it from the House. The paths are fairly narrow and the crowds at 1030hrs were already fairly congested. This meant progress was fairly... More

We took the morning train from Gare-St-Lazare to Vernon Station,only 45 minutes,from where a shuttle bus delivers you to Giverny. The carpark, one of five, removes any allusion about sharing this quiet hamlet by yourself. Sixteen,giant tourist- transporters have already disgorged their occupants.....oohhh,what the hell,you are here,are you not?.......yes,it is a very popular spot! This is the home of the... More

This palce is so incredible! We took the train from Paris and it was worth while. This is a serene and wonderful place. The staff is freindly and helpful. You should know enough french to communicate with train station staff as in my personal experience not all ticket sellers speack english. Beware of the bus drivers from the train station... More

We visited in October 2012 and we're very impressed especially as this was an additional price to what we paid to get into the gardens. If you don't go in, you can still walk around and see the additional gardens near the museum.

garden & house of Claude Monet There are two parts in Monet's garden: a flower garden called Clos Normand in front of the house and a Japanese inspired water garden on the other side of the road. The two parts of Monet's garden contrast and complement one another. Very true and correctly put. I have very much appreciated them both.... More

Although most of this small museum's galleries were closed for installation we were still able to view photographs of Monet's Gardens and House in the downstairs gallery (and it was free!).
