Great app - very useful!
I liked that I could use the recommended tours or explore on my own using the map to see where I was when I visited the garden. Really like the Impressionist Lens and sharing photos with friends. Monet exhibit is beautiful and the app makes the experience of visiting more fun.
WAS GREAT but now....
I used this app while visiting NYC in early June. Very helpful for info AND for the background on Monet's Garden. Plus I LOVED the Impressionist Lens which let me take lovely photos of the exhibit and of my own garden when I returned home. Now, inexplicably, the Impressionist Lens is gone....possibly due to recent update. Tell NYBG to bring it back; it was fabulous.

The map is great, and the background info is a good way to plan what you want to see.
