  • 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. Off peak season don't have to wait much, you could pay extra online for things you don't really need.There is a security check airport style, but quick so it is and you have to expect that with high cost valuable and so on
