  • Venus for the nymphs we remained under the spell and emotion of these 2 German Expressionist painters who fed the experiences and talents of the French painters. Dead from the beginning of the war of 14 their work then takes a turn of urgency and lets us regret that the madness of men deprived us of their immense talent. The place is also nice and well designed. Small cafeteria with quality products.

  • Wonderful Museum, where to admire the Water lilies of Monet. In the circular one you can admire three large panels that run all around us and that make us feel like inside a timelapse: Monet was really ahead! A masterpiece of water and light: If you are a true art lover you can not miss this place where you will feel transported in the aquatic Garden of Giverny. An experience of augmented reality where to be transported to a magical place.

  • Worth a visit. Small museum but the Money panels are incredible. Definitely take some time to sit on the benches and just really observe the paintings. Quite a lovely mix of art on the bottom floor that was a treat to see. Can be squeezed in between activities as it doesn't take long to visit.
  • The tickets were surprisingly cheap. The Monet exhibition was absolutely breathtaking, it felt like you were inside a painting. There were VR sets in the museum as well but the wait times were quite long, I recommend you to arrive early to reserve a spot. The other exhibitions were also noteworthy. Very well worth the time.
