“Monet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Two rooms showing Monet's water lilies is a gem. Unique experience. Peace in the world of chaos. The work and space are unique.

“Always a highlight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

This is a more intimate experience than the Musee d'Orsay, yet the Paul Guillaume collection gives the visitor a wonderful taste of impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces. Of course, Monet's awe-inspiring Nymphéas are a highlight, perfectly displayed in the oval rooms designed specifically for these iconic murals, with input from Monet himself.

“Must See!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Museum pass, museum pass, museum pass! Bypass all the lines at most of the major museums.
Just the Monet displays are worth the visit alone. Fantastic.

“Wonderful waterlily rooms!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

The rooms designed especially for Monet's waterlilies are divine. There are also other beautiful impressionist works. One of the top museums in Paris after the Louvre and the d'Orsay.

No photos allowed ... my dislike.
