The American Impressionist colony gets good coverage at the Musée des Impressionnismes (just up the road from the Fondation Claude Monet). But lovers of the painting movement will also discover a wide-ranging programme of temporary exhibitions aiming to dissect Impressionist movement as a whole, as well as its influence on painting during the second half of the 20th century. As with Claude Monet's house, you can't miss the garden – a sumptuous, contemporary space with monochrome flowerbeds and plunging views onto Giverny's hills.
