We love this museum. Loaded with art that we are interested in. It is easy to navigate.Monet, Van Gough, Cezzanne lovers need to go here. more »
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.
