Not a big gallery, but the quality is excellent: Cézanne, Renoir, Picasso, Matisse, and especially the Monet murals.

As a hard-core Monet's fan.. this was a must in my list in Paris!! I thought it contained more of Monets paintings.. but i guess the wall-to-wall waterlillies filling huge rooms are worth the visit!! I wished people didn't make such a fuss about taking pictures, since i would have LOVED to have a picture of me with these masterpieces... More

Beautiful small museum with great spaces for sitting and viewing paintings . In the west corner of the Tuilleries difficult to find but well worth the visit

Museum created to contain Monet's Water lilies series in a wonderful oval room. Also has a nice collection of impressionists paintings. Possible to buy combined tickets with Musée d'Orsay.

L'Orangerie is a smaller, contained museum that generally shows one subject in detail. We didn't know much about Emile Bernard, a lesser known impressionist, friend of Van Gogh and Gauguin, and enjoyed being introduced to his works.

only a 4-star because I thoguht the museum was quite small. the Nympheas take up for a whole large room (impressive), but then there are not that many rooms. OK if you have some spare time. Nice location in the Tuileries gardens and not too crowded compared to the Orsay or oto the Louvre

A beautiful collection of art - we went to see the waterlilies but also really enjoyed the collections of Renoir, Picasso and others that I can't now remember! There is an audio visual room where you can watch a documentary (French, English subtitles) on Monet & his works - worth a watch. There is a museum shop, no cafe so... More

This small museum wuold be put on my "if you have a spare hour" list. They have moving exhibits, which may or may not be good, and the art modern collection of Paul Guillaume. I am not a fan of modern art so keep that in mind as you read this. The big claim to fame is the 2 oval... More

A rare experience, sitting quietly, without the shifting throngs one expects in Parisian museums, contemplating Monet's Water Lilies, hung in the circular gallery he was involved in designing, in the places he chose. Very special.

It is always a joy to visit the Nympheas, the enormous Monet water lily paintings (8 of them filling the walls of two rooms). If you are lucky you will also find an interesting special exhibition in addition to the permanent collection of Jean Walter and Paul Guillame. Beware, there is no cafe here so have a drink before you... More
