Owner description: This beautiful museum, once a railroad station, now houses a staggering collection of Impressionist art, as well as other items created between 1848 and 1914. In 2011, the museum is running a renovation of the top floor (impressionist gallery). Only ground and medium floor are accessible. The top floor will re-open on the 20th of October. Meanwhile, some impressionist masterpieces are not visible.

“Impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

Amazing collection of art. Building is impressive. Get there early to avoid long lines. Also, be weary if you need a stroller for kids as it is a pain navigating around the building with one.

“Best of Impressionism!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 May 2012

Best of Impressionism, not as big as Louvre and therefore good option if you are on a short trip and do something more than spent all day in a museum.

Summer the crowds are very impressive/sometimes overwhelming. It has an incredible collection, viewed in natural light.

“only art museum we saw”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 May 2012

I have to give the museum 5 stars for it's wonderful art. There was a strike of the cleaning workers when we were there and some litter was strewn around. Also, as in any popular museum there were sometimes so many people standing in front of the paintings that it was hard to see.
