The museum is a must if you like expressionism. It comprises two rooms of Monet. And while it's often quite crowded, one can sit and contemplate the giant works. If you come early in the day, you can have some semblance of time with the works. The two rooms are drastically different so make sure you give them both time.

Not a very big museum but definitely worth visiting even if just for Claude Monet's "the Nymphéas" (Water Lilies), painted in the artist's garden at Giverny...simply beautiful! Downstairs theres an amazing Walter-Guillaume collection of post-impressionist works; Modigliani''s works too. Make sure to buy your tickets online (we bought the combined ticket for Musée d'Orsay and Musée de l'Orangerie) or you'll... More

The queue was very long and took over an hour to get in to the museum. Get a museum pass and skip the line. The two story museum is quaint and the Water Lillies are amazing to see. Luckily an American painters showing was there and we stumbled across American Gothic. Great Museum

Great little gallery with an impressive colection of impresionists including the famous water lillies. They had a 1920-1930 American art temporary exhibition that was superb.

I had been the Louvre and Orsay before visited this one. And my favorite among the three is here! The Louvre and Orsay are too big, crowded, so many paintings and statues. My family was exhausted instead of appreciated the masterpieces they have. It might because of I love painting of Monet also:) And we visited this one in the... More

Inside, L'Orangerie is like no other art museum in the world. The art was created specifically for the space and given to the French state by Monet. Altogether, eight immense Water Lillies adorn the walls of two elliptical rooms positioned end to end. That's all there is to the main museum--eight huge paintings that evoke the full day from sunrise... More

Orangerie is a quite calm place because the main experience you can have in there is just observing water lillies by Claude Monet. Very contemplative and calming experience.

Each time I have visited l'Orangerie, I have been impressed by the exhibitions they have on their lower level. Everything is well thought out and even when it is crowded, it doesn't feel overly so. If you are in Paris on the first Sunday of the month, admission is free. Go have a look!

If you visit Orasy, you could walk 10 minutes across the Seine river. Then, you will see beautiful Turlie garden and find out Orangerie. It has beautiful collection of Monet and also other masterpieces.
