An impressive collection of impressionistic art. Special traveling visits keep things interesting. Gardens are amazing in the spring.

I stopped here for the art. I found the garden to rather blah and only walked around to kill some time. For art, this is a nice stop to see a wonderful Monet, Pissaro, Cezanne, Renoir, Sisley, and some other art and objects. Happy that...More
