The Musee de l'Orangerie has two rooms specifically designed by Monet, with four panorama paintings each. When does an artist get to design the rooms where their work will be displayed? There are many other works of art by artists that were known and new to me. Make sure you buy a museum pass ahead of time to bypass the... More

The eight giant masterpieces of Monet's career painting his gardens at Giverny are shown here in precisely the relationship and manner that the artist planned. He arm-twisted Clemenceau into sponsoring this gallery, and the world benefits. Downstairs, there are more impressionists, and an excellent book and souvenir shop, cafe and toilets. Good seating allows time for study and contemplation, even... More

It is a personal favourite because of the way it displays its 8 panoramic pieces of Monet. All the 8 artwork is placed in a room with ample lights to show the effect of light on Monet's work. We were mesmerised. I will go again when in Paris.

I walked in the room of Monet's lilies that spread across the entire room and was instantly in tears. It is very difficult to describe this, just go see it.

Great museum and not too big so that it can be covered in 2-3 hours. Great range of artists but my favourite was the very large Water Lilly works by Claude Monet.

If you're into impressionist and post-impressionist paintings, this "manageably" small museum is lovely, and my favourite in Paris (a big thing to say because I live here). And then of course there's the panorama of Monet's lilies — fabulous.

This is one of the best kept secrets in Paris. The museum is easily accessed from the Tuileries. The art provided by Monet is just exceptional and his design of the display gallery perfect. Not only did we see many of the works by Monet, we also enjoyed work by Cezanne, Matisse, Picasso, Renoir and Rousseau. Rotating exhibits also are... More

In addition, there is a collection permanent collection and special exhibitions. A joint ticket with the Musee d'Orsay... More

Paris has so much to offer in the arts, however, this Museum is our favorite. We are huge fans of Monet and loved the collection. It was truly magical. The lighting in the Museum was extraordinary when the sun came out. We cannot wait to return!!

Apart from its stunning permanent collection of Impressionist painters from the Jean Walter and Paul Guillaume collection and the world famous Monet Nympheas, the Orangerie is currently exhibiting masterpieces of the Ishibashi collection from the Bridgestone Museum of Art. The Orangerie, facing the Place de la Concorde at one end of the Tuileries gardens has been beautifully restored and is... More
