Surrounded by Monet

A nice gallery to take a break from the throngs of the Louvre. Standing in the Monet Room surrounded by the impressive water lilies is a unique and magical experience.

The two rooms with wall-to-wall Monet water lilies are a must see. Small museum, but some great art. Get there when it first opens for short lines.

We bought the passport for Musee de l'Orangerie and Musee d'Orsay for 16 Euros! We didn't have to queue to get in here and Monet's works alone were well worth the visit. Absolutely fabulous!

Arrive early (10 ish) to get in and avoid the large ques later. Buy a combined passport ticket to also get in the Musee D'Orsay. The panoramic rooms of Monet paintings of Giverny are exquisite.

This museum is well worth a visit. Especially if you like waterlilies. It is a little gem with lots to see downstairs and amazing rooms filled with huge canvases that take your breath away.

The collection of Impressionist works and the beautiful lighting make this worth a stop even if you're visiting many other art museums in Paris.

After a long day of walking around Paris and spending time at the Musee d'Orsay, going to the l'Orangerie is peaceful bliss. Seeing Monet's water lilies as he wanted them displayed is awesome. A fabulous small museum well worth the trip.

The crowds were moderate but even then it interfered with the pleasures of seeing the rooms in peace and quiet. Go first thing in the morning to avoid the crowds.

I spent hours in Musee de l'Orangerie just staring at their waterlilies installation. Words cannot describe the beauty. There are two large oval rooms with huge canvases of the scenes from different light perspectives. There are also of course other artwork which is lovely downstairs but the Monet is the main draw card. Definitely worth it.
