The waterlillies are just stunning, and even if had great expectation, they were filled. These painting are still major masterpieces in the world art. An additional surprise were the exhibitions downstairs, of which at least one was temporary (and a very interesting one on early...More

You can visit it either before or after a stroll in the Jardin des Tuileries- the museum is situated on the right of the entrance to the gardens. If you buy a double ticket Orsay/Orangerie you save some ! The 2 halls displaying the waterlillies...More

I sat for an hour in the room where the enormous Water Lilly paintings are housed and gazed in awe at the beauty that we are all familiar with. The originals are not to be missed - the size alone is awe-inspiring. As with most...More

If you like Monet's waterlily series - this is a must for your Paris list. And even if you don't - you will be a believer after viewing these magnificent impressionistic specimens, bathing in perfect light. This museum is a gem! Small and very manageable....More

Great place to visit for a lot of famous Impressionist paintings. Many paintings were out on loan but overall it was great to see the "originals' of many paintings.

I am not a fan of this museum. Waste of my time when there are far more extensive collections throughout the city.

Monet's eight great paintings of waterlillies are on display here. To sit in the room and view them is realy inspring. Try to go there when the crowds are less as you will not have people waliking past you all of the time

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
