If you enjoy the impressionists, Monet in particular, then take the time to stop here. I could have spent the day just looking at Monet's huge canvases of the water lilies. The lower level has a wonderful assortment of beautiful impressionist paintings as well - take the time to see everything!

Even with a fair number of people around the water-lillies are absolutely wonderful and so peaceful to see. Magical.

This is a very small collection, but it is still worth visiting, even if you only go to the two rooms containing the waterlilies canvases. They are really that good, and this museum displays them so well. Can easily fit this in after a visit to the Musee D'Orsay, which is just across the river, helpfully connected by a walking... More

Love this museum. We visited three while in Paris and liked this one the best. It was small enough that it was manageable. The huge Monet's are beyond description. There is a very good representation of impressionism and post-impressionism. There was a temporary exhibit from U.S. while we were there - The Age of Anxiety - American art from the... More

Musee de l'Orangerie is one of the precious, not so crowded places to visit for art lovers during a Paris stay. Here you can see the biggest masterpieces of Monet. In two oval rooms you find 8 huge paintings of Monet which is a very impressive experience because of their inpressive size. Furthermore you can see paintings of Utrillo, Rembrandt,... More

They were gone for years, but now they're back. There are benches so you can just sit and gaze after you've strolled through this fabulous museum just at the end of the Tuilleries from the L'Ouvre. Don't miss it.

It is not so big compared to other famous museums, but most of the paintings are very famous. And of course, there are big Monet's lotus paintings!

Visited with 2 teenagers. We really enjoyed this gallery. The monet paintings & rooms they are displayed in are beautiful. The gallery also has a collection of other impressionist paintings. It is a really manageable size & there were no queues to enter, which is a definite plus in Paris!

All the pictures were really really old and maybe they could have someone new in here instead. These circular exhibition rooms are very confusing too, I can't remember which pictures I've already seen. Some big red signs to number the paintings would be snazzy. Maybe turn up the lights to make it brighter in here too. So dull and I... More
