  • To think that Monet donated these as a peace gesture after WWI is amazing. To see these massive pieces in the place he personally installed them is inspiring.

  • This is a wonderful museum- a converted train station with an incredible collection of artwork. A must see when you are in Paris!

  • Best museum ever in Paris: the rooms sorting is the best. I loved the comparison and influence between artists and also the reconstruction of Paul Guillaume's house. The experience of Monet's water lilies is astonishing, I would like to stay inside a lot.
  • Just the best museum in the whole of Paris. It is of the right dimensions to be visited and the quality of the work exhibited is simply astonishing! It makes you love the impressionism and it is a perfect place to relax and pause from the frenetic Parisian life. Book before going, it can be very crowded and not all the time slots are always available.
