The most stunning garden, tulips in bloom in every color. It would be hard not to be surrounded by such beauty. Visiting the pond just days after viewing monets water Lillie's at l'orangerie was magical.

This would have to be one of the most poorly organised and dissapointing attractions we have been to. The crowd management and ticketing is a disgrace and bordering on unsafe. The gardens consist of a short ciruit around a pond with poorly maintained gardens.

Save your money and appreciate Monet at the Musee D'Orsay.

If you must go book your tickets online to save about two hours of lining up on a busy day, but really haveing travelled frequentley to many attractions across Europe and UK this place is a joke.

Visited while on a River cruise in Normandy. The weather in general was rainy, however when we visited Monet's garden it was a beautiful fine morning (in April). We were there just at opening time and the early sun on some still-damp flowers looked lovely - lots of photos of course! The house was also very interesting - particularly the paint colours used - and again we benefitted by being first round! Although the famous water lilies were not yet in bloom the pond and its bridges lived up to expectation. Also, do not miss the colour-specific display gardens outside the museum nearby, filled at ithis time mostly with amazing coloured tulips, plus of course a 'white garden'. All in all highly recommended.

This place will take up the memory on your cameras as there are many photos to be taken. The flowers are always in bloom. This is a must to your visit of Giverny.
