Are advance tickets needed for Monet's House & Museum of Impressionisms

I'm wondering if we need to purchase timed tickets in advance to visit Monet's House & Garden and the Museum of Impressionisms. We we will be going on a Tuesday in early June and will be driving there.

Thank you for the link to that thread. We are arriving in Paris on 6/11, renting a car and Giverny is our first stop so I'm hesitant to purchase a ticket in advance in the event we are delayed in any part of the process. I'll have to investigate more and relook at our timeline that day as I also don't want to chance having to wait in line.

I am back a few days from my visit to France . We booked our tickets to Giverny the night before we visited. We had no difficulties securing tickets from their website. We went on a Monday morning , it was very crowded. I am not sure if the crowds are less after it has been open awhile, I doubt it. We also had no problems getting a train ticket from Paris. The train also was packed and we had to stand most of the way. Once you arrive in Vernon/ Giverny the shuttles to Monet's home are waiting . It is all quite easy, just be prepared for lots of visitors even if the weather is not ideal.

We just returned from France and visited Giverny on our last stop. We bought tickets ahead and it was easier than waiting in line. We were there on a Saturday and Sunday and the gardens were crowded, but I am guessing less crowded than later in the season. The Impressionism Museum was easily to walk right in and get tickets, but it was a Sunday morning. We stayed at a delightful B&B right on Rue Claude Monet - La Pluie de Roses. Highly recommend. Luciano was delightful and helpful. Would not recommend the restaurant at La Musardiere - expensive, food preparation took too long, and it was the most we spent for a restaurant meal. Hotel Baudy was much better, and reasonably priced.
