This museum is so peaceful to visit compared to the other art museums. You must see it if you are a Monet fan!

See the water lilies. Imagine the places you are standing at Giverny. Enjoy the Renoir selections. Lots of impressionistic paintings... left "a good impression" on me!

I thought I knew something about Western European art but L'Orangerie was an eye-opener. Who knew that Monet's famous play of light on water had been painted specifically for this building, and offered to the public as a kind of sanctuary? Not me! Beautiful, generous...More

This museum is quite small, but loaded with wonderful things. Squeeze this one in when you've got a spare hour or so, and you won't regret it.

This is one of the most beautiful museums in the world. At every turn, there are treasures. It is not large, but take your time and immerse yourself in all its incredible works of art.

Everyone raves about Monet’s incredible creation. His WaterLillies are outstanding and the centerpiece of the collection. However, the rest of the collection is wonderful. The Impressionists are well represented. This is a rare museum where you have the energy to see every item on display.

I was looking forward to visiting this small museum, but never imagined how much in awe I would be from the huge Monet Water Lilies collection. Simply wonderful. You must visit !

Not as extensive as some of the other museums, but great paintings inside. A lot smaller than I thought it would be. If you have time, definitely go for a look.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops

It is really dependent on you. You certainly could spend an hour or two. At the same time, it is two rooms and with limited time you may only have 30 minutes. It is worth the stop. I might schedule after the Louvre as it is... More

Yes. It is part of the Paris Museum Passport. You can buy online at Visit Paris and they will deliver to your hotel. Most of the major sites and museums are on this passport. Skip the line and save money.

There is a ticket that could be bought in both Museums that let you visit both in the same day. It is interesting because is a little bit cheaper than buy the two separate tickets, and also you save one of the queues. The... More
