One of my favorite museums in all of Paris. I could sit in the galleries for hours and just stare at the art work. Well designed with lots to see. Seating at the appropriate areas so you can just sit and enjoy the artwork. Easy to get to and was surprised at how inexpensive the tickets were to get in. Nice gift shop here with offerings for the collector or casual tourist.
Lovely museum. Please note that the main gallery is closed until March 2020. The Money gallery is still open and is spectacular! Make sure to sit insane soak every painting of the 8 water lilies, as each one is a perfect reflection of Monet's vision and style.
