This small museum shows temporary exhibits focusing on less-well-known artists from the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist periods. When we visited, the featured painter was Henri Manguin, a Fauvist, and the exhibit was extensive, informative, and visually very attractive. Don't expect to see a lot of works...More

If you decide to visit the Impressionist Museum check first to make sure it's an exhibition you want to see. These are not Monet's paintings. We like Manguin and enjoyed the exhibit. There were no lines to purchase tickets and there were very few people...More

Although the museum is small, it is well laid out and quite interesting. The grounds are very pleasant.

An engaging exhibition in a purpose built gallery. Not the history of impressionism I was expecting but very interesting.

Nice supplement to the Monet visit, but not up to same level. Exhibit is mostly not permanent and not very large. Still worth the visit.

Very nice building and rooms but currently hosting an exhibition about a fairly boring and pedestrian french painter - Manguin I believe - but the restaurant is very nice
