Musee De L' Orangerie - Review
Prepare to be enraptured by panoramic Monet masterpieces at the Musee de L’Orangerie. The museum exhibits impressionist and post impressionist paintings that are exhibited in a non-crowded fashion, just as stipulated by Monet himself. The famous Waterlilies is showcased here and so is the superb Walter – Guillaume collection of post impressionist works. The adjoining Tuileries garden is a delight to the eyes and makes for a beautiful stroll. Musee de L’Orangerie is a place that is most definitely ripe for repeat visits.

Musee De L' Orangerie, Paris Reviews
I had no idea this place housed Monet's enormous water lilies in its entirety; displayed in a infinity-8 shape over two rooms. Stunning, if you're a fan of impressionist art. The story of how these came to be displayed here about 100 years ago it's fascinating. Enjoy!
A wonderful little gallery housing Monet's Waterlilies. It was busy, as expected but we went on the first Sunday of the month and were pleasantly surprised it was FREE. We must have been lucky as there was very little lineup, the staff we nice enough and the gift shop and cafe were nice to visit as well. I highly recommend!
Loved every inch of this museum. It’s a paradise for the lovers of Impressionism. The galleries are well curated and the space feels connected to each piece. Give yourself plenty of time to sit and consume each room. Sit. Enjoy the colors and movement. Audio guidance was 5€ for English. Worth the money to help give background on the art and artist. This museum is part of the Paris Museum Pass. I highly recommend it for visitors.
Very busy, and not as vast as I imagined. As in, not as much artwork as I thought was held here. However, a really lovely experience to see Monet artwork in person. Lovely gift shop, also.
A wonderful museum that shouldn’t be missed. We went to the museum to see the beautiful canvases of Monet’ water lilies but were just as please with the rest of the museum. Both the permanent collection and the temporary exhibit were fantastic. To see so many pieces of art that were held in private collection now displayed to the public (including a recreation of how they used to be displayed) is a great treat. Try to time your visit for when the crowds aren’t as big. The Monet canvases need to be appreciated from a distance to get the true scope of them. This isn’t easy if there are too many people in the rooms.
