Loved the lack of crowds and the time explore up close the works of artists such as Monet, Picasso, Renoir, Matisse the list goes on. An overlooked museum.

This musuem is a must visit if you love Monet's work espeically his 'Water Lillies' series. There is two oval rooms which contain 8 of those paintings. Lighting in the room changes from sunrise to sunset so you can see the effect of light on...More

Quick visit to less populated but still impressive museum. Monet's are very cool. Plus you can buy one bundled ticket that includes d'Orsay (which avoids the line there).

L'Orangerie is a small museum primarily dedicated to Monet and his fellow Impressionist painters of the period. Tucked in a corner of the Tuilleries Garden it is a must not miss for painter fans and garden fans alike because nature, light, and flowers that abound...More

This is a quick museum to visit. Not far from the Louvre. While it's small it is worth visiting. A nice change from some of the overwhelming large museums you can look at each picture. Monets, Picassos and Renoirs in a smaller setting. Put this...More

This is not a huge museum, which makes it all the better. Loved sitting in a peaceful room looking at Monet's water lilies. The rest of the collection is also interesting, and not as crowded as other museums. Definitely worth visiting and nice sitting outside...More

This is a beautiful environment in which to appreciate Monet's work. I would recommend going early before the crowds build up.

While this isn't a major museum like the Lourve or d'Orsay, it's worth a visit. Great collection of giant Monet water lilies, and some nice Renoirs and Picassos. It's on the way from d'Orsay to the Champs-Élysées - I'd recommend stopping by.

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

It is really dependent on you. You certainly could spend an hour or two. At the same time, it is two rooms and with limited time you may only have 30 minutes. It is worth the stop. I might schedule after the Louvre as it is... More

Yes. It is part of the Paris Museum Passport. You can buy online at Visit Paris and they will deliver to your hotel. Most of the major sites and museums are on this passport. Skip the line and save money.

There is a ticket that could be bought in both Museums that let you visit both in the same day. It is interesting because is a little bit cheaper than buy the two separate tickets, and also you save one of the queues. The... More
