The museum is cool quiet and staffed well. The audio guide is good. And you can sit on padded benches and gaze at Water Lilies until you heart is full

This is overlooked by many when thinking of visiting Paris. Wrong. Do not overlook this great museum of art. If you miss it you will miss out on seeing some of the masters and be stuck for days in The Louvre. Highly recommend it and...More

This is a small museum you can combine with a trip to the Louvre, which is a short walk away through the connecting park. The two Monet rooms, housing four "Water Lilies" paintings each, are the main attraction. Sitting in the two rooms viewing the...More

Enjoyed the peace and tranquility of the water lilies. Grab the two for one with the Musee D'Orsay for the biggest bang for your buck.

You need to view the Water Lily canvases to appreciate the fabulous mastery of the artist. The museum was easy to access and no queuing was involved.

Very good collection. If you love the art of Impressionist and in particular the art of Monet and his water lillies, this is a must!

Marvelous small museum, breathtaking but reasonably sized collection of Impressionist art, many other visitors but not insanely crowded. Lovely to be able to spend time, up close, with gorgeous Renoirs. Recommended.

To be in a room incircled with Monet's water lillies, breath taking. I had just been to Giverny two days before my visit to this lovely museum. To see Monet's inspiration and his art was something I will always remember.

If you have never seen Monet's Water Lillies then a visit to the Musee Orangerie is a must. The panels are breathtaking . The Walter and Guillaume collection downstairs is also great with work from Picasso, Renoir, Utrillo, Sisley, Mattise, to name a few,

Each visit to Paris i get myself lost in the sheer beauty of these two elliptical rooms that were purpose built to show Monet's massive scaled canvases depicting the four seasons of his beautiful lily ponds at Giverney. One can almost feel the changing seasons...More

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

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
