  • There is close to the Louvre and Orsay museums and famous for Claude Monet "water lilies" Orangerie. Small scale but also many exhibits, if you like the Impressionists are folded half a day. It's location is good walk is located in the Park, so weather permitting, visit.

  • All. who loves the creativity of impressionists, I advise you not to miss this Museum in the Park. I mean the Musée de l'Orangerie. First a few tips before visiting. It is very convenient to buy single tickets for visiting the Orangerie and the Musée d'Orsay, which costs 18 euros and is valid for two days. that allowed us to visit the Orangerie in one evening and the next day go to Orsay Museum ... And the second. Choose to visit L'orangerie last hour before closing, fewer people and almost no excursions. Get great pleasure not only from two huge halls with Monet's water lilies but also from Chamber communicating with white and pink girls Marie Laurencin or portraits of Amedeo Modigliani.

  • Fortunately in January, at least, not crowded. Wonderful art, easy to view. Certainly worth a visit, even if the gardens were not in bloom.  more »

  • Truly stunning. You just have to see not only the museum but a small lake close and picnic area as well as enjoy a lakeside environment. There are also several trees along sidewalks that you can enjoy and walk through. The museum is absolutely stunning with the water lilies paintings. It was a unique experience.
  • The Location: Metro #1, 8 & 12, "Concorde". About few minutes walk to the museum. The Admission: 9 euro (included in the museum pass) This entirely refurbished museum houses Monet's Waterlilies and over 144 paintings! The Waterlilies has own special viewing room. The painting is just beautiful~ The size of the painting, the detail of the painting.... impressive!!
  • Absolutely loved this museum. It was very calm/relaxing inside compared with other museums and some great pieces of impressionist/post-impressionist art (probably not somewhere to go if you do not like these styles). Monet’s Waterlilies are spectacular. We were able to get 2-for-1 entry with our Eurostar tickets.
  • We love this museum! It’s just the right size for my art loving 3 year old to enjoy without being too overwhelming. The park and gardens outside were a plus.
  • One floor is just the water lilies painting. You either love it or think has had done better works. For those on limited budget or time, skip this museum, there are better. 30-60mins is plenty of time here. Included with museum pass
