The Monet lily ponds alone are worth the price of admission. They are now superbly displayed and very well lit. You can sit and soak in the subtle colours. But do not miss the other permanent modern art paintings. They are of high quality - the Cezanne portraits of his wife are remarkable. The audio guide is very good.

Huge lines to get in on a Saturday in January - if you are in Paris to see lots of museums, you may want to get the "multi pass" at the Paris tourist bureau. It gets you access to a bunch of museums - AND it gets you in via a seperate/faster line. There were maybe a hundred in line... More

There was an excellent exhibition of post depression American artists such as Hopper, Grant & O'Keefe.

We visited this museum as part of our off days in Paris. The museum has famous paintings to represent lilly pads. Its a really peaceful museum with an amazing display of art. Great place for art lovers.

I entered this museum mainly to see the waterlilies of Monet, but the other painting collections were also too good. Do include this in your paris trip.

Tried visiting on a Sunday afternoon but was frustrated at the huge line so gave up. Returned on a rainy Friday afternoon and no queue at all. Yes, the 2 rooms showing Monet's "water lilies" are stunning. It feels so familiar. You know these works. You've grown up with them but nothing can prepare you as you enter those rooms.... More

the Monet pictures are great. A few too many art students using the chairs for their sketching. The basement exhibitions are cool. And the history of the building is also fascinating

The second time going here, and the huge Monet lily paintrings are as spectacular as ever. Lots of other exhibits of artists of the period on other floors too, and a nice cafe.

Love this place purely because of the natural light that seeps through from above. The displays that they have downstairs are also random, interesting but on the whole great.
