99, rue Claude Monet
The musee des impressionnismes is located about one hour from Paris, in Giverny, and provides an in-depth look at the 19th-century artistic movement. When Claude Monet moved to the region in 1883, he never imagined that his humble decision would bring about such an artistic renaissance here, but today this museum stands as a testament to his influence.
This brand new museum features architectural subtleties that allow the art to remain the focus, which is a stark contrast to many American museums. The venue also features a beautifully-landscaped garden that is sure to inspire new generations of impressionists.
