Musée de l'Orangerie is a museum that has marvelous impressionist and post-impressionist paintings by, to name a few, Cézanne, Renoir, Sisley, Matisse and my favorite Claude Monet. If you love Monet like me you have to go to this museum. The museum is located in the west corner of the Tuileries Gardens next to the Place de la Concorde in... More

I loved this museum. So many museums (cough... Louvre) are daunting because of their sheer size and crowds, but the Musee de l'Orangerie is much smaller and less crowded. However it hits a home run with its art, especially the Monet rooms. It really is peaceful to just sit in these room in silence while soaking in these masterpieces. It's... More

Save money buy purchasing the bundle ticket at Musee D'Orsay. L'Orangerie has the Monet Water Lilies and a nice Lautrec collection

Definitely should be on the "Paris museums to visit list" - the Water Lilies are truly mesmerising......then downstairs the Picassos, Cezannes, Renoirs are magnificent. Also, the size of this museum is great - not too large....

To see this massive display of Monet's work is just breath taking. There is also some lovely Renoir on display too. Entry is about €9 but there are concessions. There's a souvenir shop too. You must visit.

Really good museum with unique waterlilies !! It is a small museum but you can appreciate good paintings of Renoir, Picasso, Monet in only 1 heure. Moreover, you can buy a double ticket for Orsay and Orangerie Museum !

The Monet exhibition is stunning, but equally impressive is the Guillaume exhibition downstairs. This contained beautiful art from Monet, Cesanne, Picasso, Matisse and many more. Worth a visit.

Not among the more better known museums, this place is a gem. Come see Monets' Lilly's as he meant to see it. Big murals on all for walls. Outstanding! In addition to Monet there are pieces by Renoir, Picasso, Modigliani,Rousseau and others. Get there early to be able to fully appreciate Monets' masterpiece. Even though it's not one of the... More
