If you enjoy the Impressionist era don't miss this gallery ,its the most fantastic building holding Monet's waterlilies and other highly regarded and recognisable pieces from Renoir,Cezanne and others.We visited the Musee D'Orsey which was also incredible, do them both as they intertwine and you learn so much about this beautiful era of art. More peaceful ,more to study and... More

Monet's Waterlilies are very attractively displayed in the oval rooms. Nice seating to sit and contemplate all the nuances of colour and light. Excellent exhibition downstairs when we visited, housing many impressionist and later works. Very worth a visit. Our museum pass didn't give us priority entry but there was a small queue so didn't matter.

An extraordinary collection of Impressionist art, the Orangerie seems to be little-known but an absolute gem. The first few rooms of Monet's Waterlilies are worth taking a good while to sit and soak in, if you can get a seat! Just stunning, even on a day of miserable weather. If you've got a Paris Museum Pass, make sure this is... More

Claude Monet's water lilies spread over an entire wall--this is a small museum, but the artwork is no less spectacular. This is well worth a visit for anywone who likes the impressionists.

Even if you hit the peak of your Monet-loving in high school, and are now sort of embarrassed to admit you like waterlilies anymore (guilty!)... go here. It's genuinely lovely. Take a stroll through the Tuileries before or after. After living in Paris for a while, and touring a lot of beloved family and friends through multiple museums, multiple times,... More

We should have done more research. We knew it housed Monet's water lilies but not the paintings most of us know. The one with the wooden bridge is actually at the Musee D'Orsay.

I heard of this place back in high school art class and never thought I would ever be in Paris, let alone going to this museum. We had to wait in line forever in the mud because we didn't buy advanced tickets which was a pain but we were glad that we finally got it. It was beautiful in there.... More

Monet, Monet, Monet … I need not say more! Monet donated paintings to the city and they are on display at Musee de l'Orangerie … just to be able to sit and view these paintings is all you need … we visited on a rainy Paris day but it was worth it walking through the rain to be able to... More
