A must see if you are interested in see Monet’s famous Water Lily panels. Other than that not too much to offer but if you are a Monet fan like myself this is a must-see! You can get a deal to the museum if you purchase a ticket to the d’Orsay. Look for the Musée d'Orsay /Musée de l'Orangerie Passport for 16 Euros.

Im not an art follower, but even I recognized some of the pieces there. And its not so overcrowded that it makes it frustrating to walk around and admire the artwork.

The two oval rooms are a must see...just a beautiful presentation of the Monet's but the rest of the collection is lacking spunk

This museum is a treasure: small, elegant, restrained in design, it is a perfect setting for the stunningly displayed series of Monet's Water Lilies paintings. There are two rooms of these magnificent works, displayed in a circular pattern that makes the viewer feel surrounded by their color and beauty. There are other Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works in the gallery as well. Not to be missed!

I could sit in the Waterlily galleries all day, every day. If you like Monet, this museum is for you!
