A tribute to Claude Monet’s art

Imagine Monet is the exhibition created by the French directors Annabelle Mauger and Julien Baron, the world's first directors of a digital immersive exhibition. Imagine Monet starts with the famous painting Impression, Sunrise (1872) and closes with the renowned Water Lilies series (1914-1926). This experience features over 200 well-known masterpieces by Claude Monet.

360° projections on walls and floor will plunge visitors into a waking dream, thanks to state-of-the-art Image Totale© technology. Imagine Monet is an exhibition that pays tribute to Monet’s art, offering an authentic experience for children and adults, novices and art lovers. The exhibition's creators have conceived a "discovery room" designed as a didactic journey on Claude Monet’s life and work before stepping into the immersive space.
