This is a museum with limited artists represented but if they are your choice and you are interested then it is very interesting. Monet is not my favourite having spent many hours in other galleries viewing his work but there are a good number of...More

I think you can access without entrance fee (the shop anyway). Cafe lovely, great panoramic window and view and food good. Shop small.
