Small museum

I bought a ticket here because I wanted to avoid the Monet garden line by buying a combo ticket here first. There are beautiful artwork here, but very few pieces.

My daughter and I love Impressionist art . She insisted we visit Giverny and Monet's house and gardens. I am so happy she did. It is French country and beautiful gardens all in one. We were there In April and the tulips were in full bloom. I would recommend bringing something simple to eat by the lily pond. The restaurants... More

Worth visiting, there is a very panoramic cafe, a beautiful garden with benches where you can relax peacefully while enjoying a conversation.

Dear GelatoSF, Thank you for your comment. We are a young museum and our collection is still modest. However, we organize two temporary exhibitions a year, each one presenting between 80 and 120 works of art. Our exhibitions are complemented by a permanent exhibit of about 15 works.

One of the most touching visits I did when visiting Paris for a longer stay. After visiting the museum itself, it is a must to spend a pleasant time around the gardens and pond. Simply unforgettable!

After finding out that a special exhibit of Joaquin Sorolla works were being shown, we HAD to come. Wonderful, we have enjoyed this Spanish Impressionists works for decades, now to revisit some old favorites from Madrid and see so many pieces new to us, especially the several on loan from Cuba, blues in seascapes that were magical. Over 150 works... More

Not only the House of Claude Monet but also this extraordinary museum it's worth a visit. In the period I visited thre was an exhibition of Sorolla, a Spanish painter in France. Excellent location for several paintings. Appreciation to all the staff of the museum.

You might expect to see a great number of Monet paintings here, but that isn't the case at all--there are perhaps one or two early works in the lower level gallery. Monet's works live all over the world, and very few remain in Giverny. At the rear of Monet's home and gardens, the Museum of impressionists documents the far reaching... More

I thought we would learn about impressionnistes, Monet and others. In fact there is just a tiny room with some paintings.. The rest of the museum was dedicated to another painter I had never heard of. It was in the end very interesting and the exposition was really nice but not at all what I came for!
