We love impressionist art. This was hands down the least interesting impressionist art museum that we have ever visited. Spend extra time in the gardens. That is fantastic!

Dear PebbleBCritic,

We are sorry that you were disappointed with our museum. At the time of your visit, the exhibition showed rarely seen impressionist drawings from a private collection, one of our mission being to get people to discover works or things they do not know when it comes to impressionism. We are proud to be able to show original and successful exhibition about and around impressionism twice a year.

Regards,
The staff of the musée des impressionnismes Giverny

Saw the Signac exhibition here which was very good- spacious exhibition space, well lit with good information. The permanent exhibition isn't up to much so check what is on display before you come.

If you hit it right, this museum can be a gold mine for awesome, semi-modern impressionist work. However, if you don't, the permanent collection isn't terribly interesting.

this is an okay side trip from the Monet House and Gardens. The museum is not big so not overwhelming and an hour at most you can see everything. The toilets are downstairs, there is a gift shop. The exhibit were some unfocused photographs someone took of the Monet gardens, so hardly impressive and in fact my photos turned out much better. We ran into a school group of untamed screaming children downstairs in the bathroom area and got out of there in the nick of time. Upstairs the permanent collection of paintings can be viewed rather quickly. The gardens around the museum are nice.

If you near Giverny, don't miss this gem of a museum. It wasn't busy in October, so you can really take your time and enjoy some wonderful paintings. Plan to spend 45-60 minutes there.
