What a great museum, right in the heart of Paris. Very small, but the two rooms with Monet pictures are outstanding. A nice respite from the crowds at the Louvre.

This was one of my favorite museum/art places. What a magnificent display of Monet's Nympheaus. I would highly recommend the Musee de l'Orangerie. It is a beautiful little gallery minus the throngs that queue at the Louvre.
Absolutely stunning.

Probably the main reason to visit L'Orangerie is to see the massive Monet Murals but it's not the only reason. The lower exhibition spaces feature other fabulous french artists. For a low impact museum visit L'Orangerie is the ticket. It's nice without being overwhelming.

It was difficult to enjoy the Monet rooms with 30-40 teens conversing with their friends..not sure what the best time to avoid them..I was there 4pm -6pm.

Though you will not see this presentation of lilies anywhere else!

Go if only to sit in an oval round with the 4 paintings of Monet's gardens. The fact that the museum is in the Tulleries Garden only adds to the experience.
