Owner description: This beautiful museum, once a railroad station, now houses a staggering collection of Impressionist art, as well as other items created between 1848 and 1914. In 2011, the museum is running a renovation of the top floor (impressionist gallery). Only ground and medium floor are accessible. The top floor will re-open on the 20th of October. Meanwhile, some impressionist masterpieces are not visible.

“Starry Starry Night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

Buy your tickets on line before you go or risk spending half the day lining up to get in.
Loved the museum layout and all it had to offer

“Great Museum”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

Perfect size museum! Spend the day enjoying beautiful artwork and not be overwhelmed. Cafe and restaurant located inside are great for a quick break to recharge and move on to the next exhibits. Sad part is no pictures are allowed to be taken. They offer tons of postcards, posters, books and the like in the gift shop if you need a memento to take home.

“Fantastic Impressionist Art”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

Loved the building, particularly liked seeing the work of the Impressionist Artists, The restaurant was usual standard for a lot of Art Museums however it is on the 5th floor so not the easiest place to find

“Excellent gallery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

The resturant behind the clock supplied good food if some what simple faire. The immpressionist paintings excellent and worth the addmission money alone. The only draw back was the hour wait in the rian to clear security. Do visit

“Wonderful use of old railway station”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

Superb museum & art gallery, plus restaurant with views over city from balcony. Reminders of the film Hugo with the large station clock through the face of which you glimpse the cityscape.
