Plan of the Museum
Most of the Impressionist paintings and the Monets are in the BASEMENT - which is NOT obvious when you walk in as there is minimal signage
Inspired by the hall designed for Monet's Water Lilies murals in the Muse de l'Orangerie, a special exhibition space has been created for the Monet collection in a lower level of the museum. This is large, open room space which allows visitors to follow the significant stages of the Monet's path as a painter and follow the evolution of his technique and the progression of his work, as well as to view his canvases both up close and from afar.
