As an Impressionist fan we've all seen works of Monet. This museum however stuns at the sheer beauty and size of the works. Huge floor to ceiling murals of Water Lilies that arc gracefully around the curved rotunda of the main room. Do make this a priority if possible

This was a return visit for us after nearly 30 years. The big change is the beautifully realised modernisation of the gallery allowing the pictures to be seen in less crowded circumstances than we remembered. (Once again French ambition in architectural matters seems to be limitless.). We preferred the post impressionist paintings from the Walter/Guillaume collection to the water lilies;... More

I walked through the two oval rooms in Musée de l’Orangerie, where Monet’s Water Lilies were set out, on a Wednesday afternoon coming from Place de la Concorde. The 8 magnificent compositions in these unique Monet exposition representing a rural landscape with water lilies water, willow branches, tree and cloud reflections, were considered one of the greatest artistic achievements of...

We waited years to see the water lilies again. It was thrilling to see them in their new space. Reservations are highly recommended. Admission lines are long in summer months.

The Monet rooms are simply fantastic. I could have spent all day staring and analysing every inch of his paintings. If you are a Monet fan and in Paris it's a must see.

A must to see and take it all in. I would recommend watching the video on the basement level at some time to learn the history of the paintings and artist. English subtitled and very informative.

Monet's panoramas took my breath away. This is a must see if you're in Paris! Take time to see Monet's brush strokes and colors up close and then sit down on the benches to take in the big picture for a while as well. The Musee de l'Orangerie also has great bathrooms!
