Amazing Monet experience

Unique assembly of Monet water lily panoramas. Absolutely fabulous. Downstairs collection does make one wonder about just where Renoir's reputation comes from.

No visit to Paris is complete without a visit to Musee d l'Orangerie. The Monet panels in this small museum must be seen as often as possible.

The museum is much smaller than Louvre (which is a true behemoth) comprised of only a few rooms. I took us around 1.5h to go slowly around it all. Most of the time we were stuck at the Monet’s Water Lilies. A group of 8 extremely long paintings are truly astonishing and them alone are well worth the visit.

The atmosphere in here is really peaceful and calm, especially if you go early in the morning like we did. You can just sit and gaze at a Monet while sitting on the comfortable benches conveniently placed in the galleries. And it's really necessary to take at least a few minute to take in Monet's enormous paintings.

We walked by the Louvre and Tuilleries to arrive at the Orangerie! We just adored this museum! Of course, we love Monet and seeing the 'Water Lilies' up close was fantastic, but the museum had other exhibits which we enjoyed as well... I was particularly interested in the Women Photographers (with the rest of the exhibit completed at the Museum... More

This museum is small, so I felt like I had plenty of time to view each piece of art. The main exhibit is Monet's Water Lilies, so if you have no interest in seeing that, I'm not sure it's worth the visit. With that being said, the water lilies were incredibly beautiful. The paintings took up two entire oval rooms,... More

I am not a huge museum fan but in Paris I would rate this just behind Musee d'Orsay and similar to Rodin Museum in terms of the one I would want to see. If you are in Paris for only 3-4 days, I don't think this is a must see or anything, but for a long trip of a week... More

Love Monet so this is an ideal way to spend a couple of hours.Water lilies art on show are amazing and the audio guide well worth getting. Brilliant shop as well well stocked with English books and magazines. Can get overcrowded though, easily done for a small gallery so I would try and make sure there are no groups in... More

The Monet water lilies are housed here in stunning simplicity. The collection downstairs has an interesting mix from Renoir to Picasso. Another must do in Paris
