The water lilies were beautiful. Going an hour before closing was great as there was no crowd at all. However everything else except for waterlilies was shut for refurbishment and they did not inform us of this at the ticket counter and charged full price anyway.
A must if in Paris. Art lovers and everybody in general nice staff and price wise very reasonable, less than ten Euro only, get a bit of culture into you highly recommend.
