Queues for the Eiffel Tower can take over an hour at busy times but this skip-the-line tour lets you breeze past the crowds and enjoy priority access. Head straight up to the second floor and listen as your guide points out the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, and Notre Dame Cathedral. Finally, continue to the top floor on your own, where you can spend as long as you like admiring the views.

What a great museum. I feel like everyone working there is very cultivated, so polite, and friendly to visitors. I especially love the souvenir shop, so many good books.

Monet’s water lily paints are displayed on the large walls of the museum and look fantastic! If you are around the area, it is definitely worth of an hour visiting this place of art of Impressionism. Pay attention to water lily, of course, but don’t miss the light reflection on the water.

One of Paris's best kept secrets for seeing Impressionist paintings without the crowds or the overwhelming size of the Musee d'Orsay. Monet's large scale water lilies are exhibited here in a space that he personally designed for best viewing and the light is fantastic. Don't miss this terrific museum.

October 2020, returning to the reopened Orangerie, mostly to see the exposition on Di Chirico. No queues in front of the museum so that was a promising start. Which did not last. Even though it was obvious that there was certainly no flood of visitors, impossible to enter. A prior reservation with a dedicated visit time turned out to be necessary. To do so required an awful lot of data to be entered (which is always a pleasure on a smartphone) to create an account (why ?) and then book the tickets. Surprise, after the security code from the bank, a lack of response and the session was dead. Other attempts also fruitless. Other visitors had arrived facing the same issues. One of the guards showed empathy and told us to come inside nevertheless, it looked as if we could get a "normal" ticket paid with normal money. O, what a progress. But his colleague did not agree. It was only because of my wife's patience and diplomacy that, in the end, we managed to make the reservation with my phone (and with the help of the friendly employee), I for myself was already determined to put the museum on my blacklist. With the tickets on the phone, the next step was to get them scanned to get finally into the museum. Of course this also did not work. This in combination with someone else desperately trying to get into the museum for free claiming to be under27 but without a means to prove it turned out to be a memorial event. In the end, we were finally admitted. The exposition on Di Chirico was well-done, the rest of the Orangerie was available once more and the nice collection is well-displayed and deserves a visit once in a while. The museum shop did not allow visitors for some reason, nothing was indicated in any case. Mysterious. May be linked to Covid-19 measures ? It remains a riddle. But i really don't understand that the management of the Orangerie seems to have taken the Covid-19 measures as a means of chasing away the people from visiting their museum. After all, the entry fare of 12,50 EUR is considerable and it's hard to consider this really as good value for money.

I booked my tickets through the French section of the website so probably missed more clear wording - but as at 25 July the only section of the gallery that is open are the two rooms containing the water lillies (ie 8 paintings). I’m not sure I’d have paid the reduced but still pretty high entry fee if I’d realised. I’d definitely not have bought the €3 audio guide. That’s a Euro for each of the three recordings and they were of a “meh” quality. For some, the opportunity to visit these 8 impressively presented works in comparative quiet would be worth it. For me, it probably wasn’t - especially when the audio guide is included!
