  • This one-of-a-kind building is the ideal place to view the Monet works that cover the curved, flowing walls as well as the works of other impressionist and post-impressionist artists.  more »
  • Monet exhibit is very good. Huge paintings in a very special setting. No waiting using the museum pass.  more »

  • Truly stunning. You just have to see not only the museum but a small lake close and picnic area as well as enjoy a lakeside environment. There are also several trees along sidewalks that you can enjoy and walk through. The museum is absolutely stunning with the water lilies paintings. It was a unique experience.
  • The Location: Metro #1, 8 & 12, "Concorde". About few minutes walk to the museum. The Admission: 9 euro (included in the museum pass) This entirely refurbished museum houses Monet's Waterlilies and over 144 paintings! The Waterlilies has own special viewing room. The painting is just beautiful~ The size of the painting, the detail of the painting.... impressive!!
