The Musée de l'Orangerie is definitely one of the must-see and must-go places in Paris. Some 2 weeks ago, after visiting the exhibition "The 1930s in the US: an age of anxiety" - displaying two pretty Hopper paintings and "American gothic" - I spent 1 hour sitting with a friend in a comfortable sofa with a Gauguin and a Monet...

This is a must see if you like or appreciate Monet. The paintings are split between two rooms and are beautiful. We were lucky that there was hardly anyone else in the rooms, we were told it can get very busy (we visited on a Wednesday afternoon around 3pm). It was such a claiming and fascinating space. Downstairs didn't disappoint... More

We visited the museum with our 2 children aged 9 & 4. The museum provided stimulation for all of us. Our youngest loved the monet paintings. I myself had never seen them before, they weren't what I had imagined, they were amazing. The space allows you to sit and appreciate the work at your own pace. In a light and... More

Try to get there when it isn't so jammed with other tourists. If you enjoy Monet, this is the place to go. There are lots of worthwhile places to visit within walking distance.

Even with plenty of other tourists inside, there is something so calming about sitting on the seats inside Musee de l'Orangerie surrounded by Monet's masterpieces. Just make sure you have a Paris Museum Pass to skip the queues.

If you enjoy the impressionists, Monet in particular, then take the time to stop here. I could have spent the day just looking at Monet's huge canvases of the water lilies. The lower level has a wonderful assortment of beautiful impressionist paintings as well - take the time to see everything!

Even with a fair number of people around the water-lillies are absolutely wonderful and so peaceful to see. Magical.

This is a very small collection, but it is still worth visiting, even if you only go to the two rooms containing the waterlilies canvases. They are really that good, and this museum displays them so well. Can easily fit this in after a visit to the Musee D'Orsay, which is just across the river, helpfully connected by a walking... More

Love this museum. We visited three while in Paris and liked this one the best. It was small enough that it was manageable. The huge Monet's are beyond description. There is a very good representation of impressionism and post-impressionism. There was a temporary exhibit from U.S. while we were there - The Age of Anxiety - American art from the... More
