You can soak in the beauty of these huge murals without fighting big crowds. It is conveniently located near the Louvre. It is a nice interlude.

Amazing, wall sized, very very famous Monet paintings. Great to see them in the flesh. If you want to see the Musee D'Orsay as well I'd recommend that you get a joint ticket and go to l'Orangerie first as the queue is shortest. This way you can get into d'Orsay quickly and avoid the big queues.

Musee de l'Orangerie is a fantastic museum for several reasons. It houses Monet's Nympheas (water lilies) the size of which you cannot believe until you see. The best part - it never seems to be as crowded as the Louvre or Musee d'Orsay.

Monet, Picasso, Modigliani, Renoir.....one of the best museums in Paris for sure if you adore Impressionism. I really don't like people who came to museum and to not appreciating the rules of museum, particularly the rule of being quiet! The staff is really nice, museum is so well settled. I really like it, I would give it 10 stars if... More

Art is completely subjective and recognizing this this museum was not my cup of tea. The museum itself is also not a particularly interesting building either which sometimes can add to the experience. Part of the museum pass so entry was easy. If you like contemplating Monet's water Lillys you've come to the right place

Well, the Monet panels were all I expected and a little more. The rest of the museum was fine as well.....but back to the panels. I felt like I was scuba diving through Monet's ponds. Just go....and live the experience....no descriptions truly suffice.

A small but STUNNING museum. The Monet water lilies are worth the price of admission, but the rest of the collection is breathtaking.

Despite being close to the Seine and Musee d'Orsay, this less well known art museum is interesting in many ways. The exhibitions are down at basement levels, with the fist level dedicated to Monet's water lily paintings. For me, the lower floor was more interesting, being the personal collection of an art dealer that exhibited various famous early 20th century... More

This place was such a gem and so memorable. Sitting in the two large rooms surrounded by the water lilies was quite an experience! It was lovely and quiet - which is a very different experience to the Louvre or Musee Dorsay. The visitors were almost reverential of the work as well. Lovely place to sit and quietly contemplate for... More
