“Great for visiting a museum in under an hour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Yes, it can be done! This is a lovely treasure of a museum and can be seen in its entirety in under an hour. We thoroughly enjoyed seeing Claude Monet's Water Lilies. The other works were a bonus and included Guillaume, Renoir, Cézanne, and Picasso amongst others. Museums can be a challenge especially when the beautiful weather calls to be outdoors. However this museum is a must see and can fit easily into a sunny or rainy day.

“Well worth your time in Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Every piece of art was beautiful! This museum is a manageable size - not overwhelming like the Louvre - and you will want to see everything in it.

“Great, but too crowded”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Coach tours dump masses of tourists off here. Go early if you don't want to engulfed by masses of people.

“My what big lilies you have”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2013

Go here to see Monet's lilies, stay to see a surprisingly large range of wonderful paintings on the lower floor.

“Amazing Monet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013

This is a museum you need to visit if you like the Impressionists as the paintings by Monet will not travel to other museums. They were designed specifically for the building and are exquisite.
