This museum has an amazing collection. The Monet paintings are larger than life, and draw you to sit and enjoy them. Don't skip the lower level - more treasures await you there.

I've made many visits to Paris with many strolls through the Jardin des Tuileries, but I had always passed without visiting the Musée de l'Orangerie. The Musées nationaux-organized retrospect of Claude Monet's influence on "Abstract Impressionism" drew me in for my first visit and my...More

We enjoyed this museum. It’s quite small, although you have a lot of known artists. Money’s Water Lillies are not to be missed. There is a nice little cafe, which was a very good thing, considering the temperature during the day of our visit. I...More

The museum highlight is the giant paintings of water lilies by Claude Monet and they are really with the visit. The permanent collection is also good.

Unique place of Monet's paintings of his pond and water lilies. Musuem is quiet and it is one of a kind experience. Some paintings on exhibit may be on loan from other musuem as I noticed "MoMA". I enjoyed it alot, more than the Louvre....More

On a rainy evening in May, I was fortunate enough to see this collection of Monet's Water Lilies at the Musee de l'Orangerie. Housed in this museum are 8 of the artist's later works; murals of exquisite depth and translucency conceived and painted specifically for...More

Claude Monet is my favorite artist, and this was pure heaven for me, and clearly many others who were taking it all in. There are rooms where his work covers the whole wall. You can feel totally immersed in this work, quite literally! The rest...More

I've been there before and loved going back. Be sure to see the wonderful exhibit on the first floor, below the two rooms of Monet's water lilies. This museum can be seen in one hour and is heavenly.

To think that these remarkable canvasses were disregarded by many until after WW2 seems impossible. The sheer size and beauty of these epic works of art is breathtaking. Beautifully housed, hung and lit in L'Orangerie, Monet's late works transport the observer to Giverny itself and...More
