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.

We used the museum pass to gain entry so no queuing for tickets. This is one of the smaller museums.

You just have to go and see how wonderful the painting are and the size of Monet's work was breathtaking.

So nice to get up close and personal and see the detail but then to step back and see the immense size is breathtaking.

Just wow.

I think there was some other things to look at but they take second stage.

The musuem had no meaningful line nor wait; first time walked in it was virtually empty although an hour later had acquired a short line. The art was stunning. Truly jaw dropping. And not too much - I could absorb and enjoy each piece and so the whole museum without getting burnt out. Great gift shop and a small cafe. Easy to find set within the Tuileries jardin. I will definitely return on my next visit to Paris. The garden will be busier in the coming year as Paris is constructing a large temporary (one year) exhibition structure on the grounds of the garden.
