    Claude Monet’s works and story never cease to enthrall
    Léon Monet exhibition; art works from the collection of Claude Monet’s brother, including by Claude Monet, Siseley and others. An excellent exhibition, with the posdible exception of a couple of works by one family member which were litttle better than children’s paintings. A minor point, because the rest of the exhibition was really worth the effort. There is nothing to compare with seeing the original works, the brush strokes, the use of colour (especially white) and the overall composition. 14€ adult entry.

    A broader, secondary view of the Monet family and Impressionism
    We come to Paris regularly and usually include a date with the Impressionists at the Orsay Museum. This exhibit was focused on the broader Monet family, not just Claude. Several works loaned by other museums filled out the exhibit, as did sketch books, family portraits and the works of other artists. My ability to read French is limited, so I was hoping to find explanatory panels in English. Nope. The exhibit is very professionally conceived and executed, but I consider it peripheral and not for visitors looking for high points.

    Temporary exhibit of Monet was excellent. It was well lit, not crowded and educational. The location is in Le Jardin de Luxembourg which makes for a very enjoyable stroll. Great art combined with a beautiful garden. Highly recommended.

This is a relatively small expo (about 5-6 small rooms) with entrance ticket of 13 eur. It is devoted to feminist artists of 20-30s. The quality of art was below par in my opinion. So go only if you are interested in the development of the feminist movement.

It’s the first exhibition in France focusing on the decorative and ornamental arts of the Nabis. Some of the works on display were monumental and very impressive.

The museum is usually very crowded. I therefore went there shortly after it’s open in order to avoid the crowds and to my delight my efforts paid off.

Not to be missed.

This museum only houses special exhibitions --no permanent collection. Whilethere, we saw a lovely Pissarro show that is well worth the visit. The setting is lovely and charminng and the chance to finish a visit in the cafe hosted by Angelina just adds to the magic. Go. Enjoy the art. Enjoy the pastries. And then, enjoy the gorgeous gardens. You're in Paris. Everything is beautiful.

This might well have been a thoughtfully curated exhibition, but who knows?

- Bought timed tickets, but it took 10 minutes to reach the entrance.
- Cloakroom full. Everyone had to keep/carry their winter coats. Bags, including backpacks, stayed with visitors, making an already small space even smaller.
- Almost impossible to get into even the first room: completely blocked with everyone stopping to read the one board with the introductory spiel right at the entrance.
- Why are tour groups operating in such a small museum? One guide and her group of about a dozen stopped all flow.

In such a hot crush, it was all but impossible to see the exhibits or read the accompanying texts on the walls.

There are too many other well managed exhibitions in Paris this winter to waste time on this one.

The queue was horrendous and as visitors left the same amount was let in. Having prepurchased tickets is the best option and highly recommended. The display is wonderful and Mucha is a genius. The highlight was being able to take photos inside and although there were crowds you were able to take them with ease. The gift shop was filled with Mucha items for sale which was also very nice. Finishes on the 27th January 2019.
