You can see paintings from various important artists besides Monet. The museum is not so big. Many paintings have an explanation and you can learn more about the impresionism.

Nice garden and interesting museum definetly worth the visit if you come to Giverny. I would not advise the café, awfully expensive.

While in Giverny on August 12, I decided to visit again the Musée des Impressionnismes. I liked it and each time, I'm enjoying the visit. This time, there was an exhibition "Reflets d'une collection" of paintings of Reiji HIRAMATSU and photographs of Bernard PLOSSU. A lot of people might be disappointed as they are expected a museum full of Monet's paintings. This is not the case. There is only 1 painting of Monet "Nymphéas avec rameaux de saule",

In 2009, the Musée des impressionnismes Giverny replaced the Museum of American Art which was managed by the Terra Foundation for American Art between 1992 and 2008. Housed in the same building, the Musée des impressionnismes Giverny is a public institution for cultural cooperation (EPCC) which invites visitors to discover the Impressionist artistic movement in all its diversity, including its influences and its sequels.

Two temporary exhibitions punctuate each opening season of the museum from the end of March to the beginning of November. In addition, a permanent presentation, Around Claude Monet, allows visitors to contemplate masterpieces from all over the world and to better understand Impressionism.

It's a small museum with a total of about 80 paintings of various painters (Signac, Luce, Boudin, Auburtin).

after the bad experience in the house and garden of Monet, we were hoping for the museum, but were disappointed again, as the collection is really poor.

We were quite disappointed about our visit to this museum. We visited it at the beginning of July and we were done in thirty minutes as the collection is quite small. Quite enjoyable but the price of the museum is too expensive. The garden was not interesting at the time of our visit. Only worth doing if you have spare time in Giverny.

I am always happy to support museums, but this collection was stunningly small and unremarkable. There was an exhibition of Japanese paintings that was far more interesting than the regular collection. The gardens were ok, and free.

The building and the gardens are very impressive and we enjoyed the cafe however we found the exhibition at Vernon's gallery was much better. It is a good idea to buy a joint ticket with Monet's house and garden here than you beat the queue there.

The museum is just down the street from Monet’s home. It has a nice collection of art and the works are well displayed.

If you are looking to do something extra - then this is a nice visit. But, I would spend my time at Monet’s estate and throughly enjoy that - if you are limited on time.

Not really that interesting especially if you've just toured the any of the fabulous art musuems Paris has to offer. When I visited they had only a single Monet painting on display in the basement area. Recommend skipping this one.

Dear Chics_Beach_Bill, Thank you for your message. We are sorry that you were disappointed at our museum. Each of our exhibitions presents between 80 and 120 works of art. As we are a museum of Impressionisms and not a Claude Monet museum, we do not have Monet’s paintings on display all the time. In 2020, our first exhibition, "Plein air. From Corot to Monet", from March 27 to June 28, will present several works by Claude Monet, Joseph Mallord William Turner, Camille Corot or Eugène Boudin. We suggest that you should come back to discover this exhibition. Best regards, The staff of the musée des impressionnismes Giverny

Not far from Monet Gardens. Nicely laid out art museum. Artists change from time to time. Be sure to get an audio tour.
