This is across the river and a few minutes' walk away from the Musee d'Orsay. It is worth seeing for the layout of Monet's water lilies on the ground floor. However there is also a large collection of paintings on the floor below including Picasso, Renoir and Degas, as well as other interesting artists like Chaim Soutaine. I bought a... More

Monet's Water Lillies are breathtaking. Great collection of Renoir. Nice museum to walk around for a couple of hours.

This is an excellent place in which you can immerse yourself in the truly outstanding Monet water lilies 360 degree displays. Quite unique. Went early on a weekday and had barely a 2 minute queue. Not the greatest collection of other painters - including Picasso and Renoir but pleasant enough.

This is a must see museum when in Paris. The two oval rooms that house Monet’s Water Lilies are spectacular! You see the perspective of each panel as well as how they all work together from the benches in the center of each room. In the second room, it is interesting to look at the tree trunk/bark and notice that... More

Really worth a visit, epically as it is included in the Paris pass which I would also recommend. I am not normally someone who visits art museums, but it was spectacular here. I never released who big some of the paintings were. Really nice way to spend a few hours enjoying classic art.

The two Monet water lilies rooms were excellent. I also enjoyed the drawings in the west side of the building. The paintings were from well known artists such as Renoir, Picasso, and Cezanne. I just did not find the work to be all that pleasing to the eye. While I respect them for their historical value, and wanted to like... More

The two rooms of Monet's studies in light of the lilies are like no other. I love art, museum's not crowds. We went early, and the rooms were not yet full. We found seats, and had time to enjoy. A timeless and priceless moment.

Great stop for museum pass users. Plan to check bags at front desk. The Monet room is sensational - take your time to take in the oval room of lilly pads. The diverse collection downstairs is worth the trip. Plan 90-120 minutes total.

I didn't do my research in advance so I was expecting to see more, but Monet's work made the stop worth it!

The Musee de l'Orangerie is a nice, little museum in comparison to the others in Paris. Large oval rooms with 360 degree paintings from Monet who designed the rooms too. Nice, quieter museum with fewer crowds. It's great to sit in the rooms and see all the different aspects of these large pieces. The museum in in a great location... More
