The huge murals by Monet are truly amazing, a triumph and testament to his ability to upscale his work to this extent , while still achieving proportion and perspective.

Much smaller than most, but laid out very well. The Monet exhibit is of course the highlight. Eight huge Water Lillies murals by Claude Monet. They are displayed in two oval rooms with natural light along the walls. Many other great artists also have exhibits...More

If you have a Paris Museum pass and are walking from the Louvre to the Arc de Triomphe or the Eiffel Tower l'Orangerie is a pleasant stop. Not essential, it's just a nice break with plenty of shaded chairs and benches from which to contemplate...More

If you like impressionists, this is a must-see Incredible Monet pieces, including the huge water lilies that were built for this place. There are also a number of other excellent impressionist works, this this small collection, including some great Renoirs

Just beautiful. The 2 huge, oval rooms with Monet water lilies was more than worth the price, and there was so much more than that to see and enjoy.

I've been here twice, first time 10 years ago and the Monets are the aspect of Paris I remembered the most. Now visiting a second time, my breath was once again taken away at the outstanding beauty of Monets work. A must see in Paris!...More

This museum gets it name from the original purpose of the building, which was to store the orange trees for the gardens near by. The museum was redone in the early 1900's and Monet donated some original paintings to the museum, which he painted to...More

This museum is small and kind of hidden but definitely worth a visit to see Monet's water lily paintings. It also houses a small but impressive collection of other works including some by Renoir, Matisse, and Picasso. Must see.

A small branch of the "main" Orsay museum. few impressionist pictures. Claude Monet water lilies pond paintings are much too big and dull.

To see the most commonly known paints of the impressionism era, this place is a must. It is a symbol of the beauty that the human kind can create by inspiring himself with the nature.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops

It is really dependent on you. You certainly could spend an hour or two. At the same time, it is two rooms and with limited time you may only have 30 minutes. It is worth the stop. I might schedule after the Louvre as it is... More

Yes. It is part of the Paris Museum Passport. You can buy online at Visit Paris and they will deliver to your hotel. Most of the major sites and museums are on this passport. Skip the line and save money.

There is a ticket that could be bought in both Museums that let you visit both in the same day. It is interesting because is a little bit cheaper than buy the two separate tickets, and also you save one of the queues. The... More
