This is perhaps not the most popular or well known attraction in Paris, but that is wrong. Everyone should add this to their bucket list. The entrance fee of 9 Euros may be off putting, but do go in. The collection of impressionist art work including Renoir, Matisse, Monet Picasso to name but few is unparalleled in such a small... More

We were expecting to see "Water Lillies" and were treated to so much more! The had Renoir, Picasso, and many many more. The actually had "American Gothic" on loan during our visit. Nice way to get a discount on a ticket into d'Orsay as well.

going to the Jardin de Tuileries in Paris, it is worthwhile to visit as well the Musee de l'Orangerie. There you can see some masterpieces from Claude Monet and other importante artistic productions from famous painters and sculptors. It is also interesting to be aware about the fact that in the past, it was common to have places to grow... More

Take your time and walk and enjoy the pairings slowly. They are a treat for the mind. It will surprise you how very close you can get to the art. be careful of pickpockets

A very underrated museum that I hadn't visited the previous time in the city, it's a must do for art lovers. The famous Lily pond paintings are displayed on gorgeous panorama walls doing great justice to them.

We weren't sure what to expect by this visit, but we were very glad we visited this museum! But once we viewed the Water Lilies in their spectacular setting, we couldn't leave! The natural light, the order of the 8 compositions, the room shape and design all contribute to an experience that resulted in my sister and I being glued... More

It is famous for being the permanent home for eight Water Lilies murals by Claude Monet. The panoramic mural panels of Water Lilies fill two large round rooms on the... More

If you like 19th/20th century art but you don't want to spend all day in Musée d'Orsay, you should definitely go to Musée de l'Orangerie in the Jardin the Tuileries. It's not a huge museum, but it isn't tiny either. Once (or twice) a year a nice temporary exhibition is exhibited and the permanent collection is also worth it. You... More

I've been to the museum twice (both times in November - not a touristic season) and had to wait in line more time than I spent inside the museum. The museum is really small but has the beautiful oval rooms with Monet's water lilies, a few more impressionists and a temporary exhibition on the lower level. The museum is nice... More
