Monet's water-lillies are spectacular and the manner in which they are displayed is perfect. Very peaceful and it transports you to Giverny (the location where Claude Monet painted it). The other presentations downstairs pales in comparison to Musee d'Orsay.

Incredible collection of Monet's water lily paintings, in a pleasant setting, with a decent collection of other Impressionist works.

Astounding works of art. We visited Monet's garden prior to visiting Musee de l'Orangerie. I could feel the expression in his paintings.

If you love Monet then a visit to this place is a must! They are just spectacular . Rooms with walls covered with his water lily paintings. We go every year and just sit and stare at their beauty!

This little museum was on my must do list and we loved it. We went specifically to see the gorgeous Monet paintings is the purpose built rooms (love the white gauzy fabric which filters the light from above) and they were even more beautiful than anticipated. We sat and gazed at them for awhile and then decided to take a peek downstairs. Wow! So many absolutely gorgeous paintings from so many masters. I was in art history heaven!
