Sitting in the Tuileries Gardens it is easy to overlook this museum with big names like the Lourve and Musee D'Orsay nearby. However, you would be missing out on a great art gallery. The big draw is Monet's Water Lillies which are wonderfully displayed, but on the floor below there is an amazing array of famous name pictures which will... More

This is the place to see Monet's famous Waterlillies. Many other paintings are also housed in this museum.

Myself, my partner and son who has a disability have visited many galleries throughout europe. Whereas most staff ie in Vienna, Munich, Berlin, Salzberg etc have been extremely helpful, in this gallery they were obstructive and unhelpful. Althouh my son showed his disabled bus pass and a letter as evidence of his disability ( which had been accepted elsewhere including... More

This was my sixth trip to Paris, but my first visit here. I'm not sure how I missed it before, because I do love Monet. If you are a Monet fan you must visit here. It wasn't crowded and the two rooms of Monet's works are truly amazing. I liked it so much I returned a second day in Paris.

The Musée de l'Orangerie is definitely one of the must-see and must-go places in Paris. Some 2 weeks ago, after visiting the exhibition "The 1930s in the US: an age of anxiety" - displaying two pretty Hopper paintings and "American gothic" - I spent 1 hour sitting with a friend in a comfortable sofa with a Gauguin and a Monet...

This is a must see if you like or appreciate Monet. The paintings are split between two rooms and are beautiful. We were lucky that there was hardly anyone else in the rooms, we were told it can get very busy (we visited on a Wednesday afternoon around 3pm). It was such a claiming and fascinating space. Downstairs didn't disappoint... More

We visited the museum with our 2 children aged 9 & 4. The museum provided stimulation for all of us. Our youngest loved the monet paintings. I myself had never seen them before, they weren't what I had imagined, they were amazing. The space allows you to sit and appreciate the work at your own pace. In a light and... More

Try to get there when it isn't so jammed with other tourists. If you enjoy Monet, this is the place to go. There are lots of worthwhile places to visit within walking distance.

Even with plenty of other tourists inside, there is something so calming about sitting on the seats inside Musee de l'Orangerie surrounded by Monet's masterpieces. Just make sure you have a Paris Museum Pass to skip the queues.
