“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 August 2014

If you like Monet you'll like this sweet museum. Although not a lot to see, what the have us top notch. You can get through this museum quickly and do the D'Orsay the same day or another when you buy a pass for both together.

“Must see if you like Monet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

If you're a fan of Monet you have to see this one. There are two rooms that feature water lillies by Monet, you can sit down in the middle of the room, relax and have a good look. No pictures allowed which I appreciate much. The museum is small so I think around one hour would be enough. Also not so crowded, I went during high season in the morning and there were no lines.

“Small museum and near the Louvre.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Before much of the Impressionist art went to the D'Orsey, this was the place. But it still has some fine examples of famous artists, the lines aren't long and you can see it all in an hour.

“Should Be on Your Bucket List”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2014

Claude Monet's water lilies displayed pretty much as he hoped it would be is worth observing for an hour or more. Sit and look, think and allow the other tourists to fade away.
