Apart from the good collection of Monets water lilies there is also much more of worth to see. Nothing to dislike and lots to like

I really enjoyed this gallery. It's a manageable size, and not too busy. We went on the first Sunday of the month - which meant there was no entry charge - a saving of €9. Upstairs there are the 8 Monet Water Lilies, whilst downstairs there was an Emile Bernard exhibition - which closes in early January. I was not familiar with this artist (my ignorance) and was pleasantly surprised. There is also the The Walter-Guillaume Collection - various artists. There is a small gift shop, but unfortunately no coffee shop. I'll definitely visit again.

This selective collection is a must see, starting with the rooms housing Monet's water lily paintings. They have the power to transport even a group of 7 and 8 year old students. The balance of the collection is a delight as well and well worth the hour or so to view it.

I would highly recommend this gallery to all visitors to Paris. They have a small, manageable collection containing the most fantastic works of all the artists that we have come to know as being synonymous to the art revolution in Paris. such artists as Renoir, Van Gough, Picasso, Matisse, Cezanne and Monet Well set out, easy to walk around and photograph. Excellent two hours!

Don't overlook this smaller museum in one corner of the Tuileries near Place de la Concorde. The oval rooms dedicated to Monet's water lilies are spectacular. I am a fan of Marie Laurencin's work and there are 5-6 nice pieces along with some other great impressionists here. There is currently a great Emile Bernard exhibit until Jan 2015. I didn't know much about him previously, but I really enjoyed learning about his work and appreciating his talent. I don't think there is a cafe in this museum, so make sure you've eaten. There is a complimentary coat check.
