Musee de l'Orangerie is my favorite museum in Paris! Way more manageable than the Louvre, there is more to it than Monet's Water Lillies. This museum has beautiful paintings by Matisse, Modigliani, and Renoir. Get the audio guide! We went early in the morning (10...More

We saw this place on one of the Rick Steve's shows and this was a highlight of our Paris excursions. This display of Monet's waterlilies is breathtaking. People we respectfully quiet and in awe. Skip the Louvre and do this one.

Be sure to get the audio guide and prepare to spend a couple of hours there as you will observe many hours gazing at the artwork of famous artists for a century. The artwork is beautiful and I recommend this place.

Amazing to see the famous water lilies as Monet wanted them to be seen- in an oval room with a glass roof.

If you love Monet, and even if you don't, this museum is well worth a visit. Small and manageable and very enjoyable.

A visit to the small Musee de l'orangerie is a must. Not everyone knows what they have on show. Go see the original Monet, Lillie pond paintings. The shear size of them is Wow. Set in a lovely little Museum. Plenty of other world renowned...More

Hi! We found that the lines were not long in late June. However, we have noticed a marked difference if you go at lunchtime. We had a late breakfast and showed up at noon so there were no lines at all. When we were done, say... More
