Some of Monet's most beautiful waterlily works are located here. The entire museum is lovely but if you are a Monet fan, you must see this while you're in Paris. Also, check out a day trip to Giverny to see Monet's home and the inspiration...More

The two circular Monet rooms of the Nympheas are spectacular. The collection features impressionist and post-impressionist work by Picasso, Cezanne, Matisse, Monet, Sisley, Gauguin, Utrillo and Modigliani. Plan to spend about an hour. We visited on a Saturday afternoon and walked right in. Beautiful collection...More

As stated on every other TA review, the Monet Water Lily paintings are breathtaking. Don't miss the art on the lower floor. This is a manageable museum in a prime location at the other end of the Tuilleries Garden from the Louvre. This museum was...More

In early September, there was no line....unlike the Louvre, even with the skip the line Paris museum pass we used there. The Monet water lily paintings filled two huge rooms, more productive to capture detail photos with my camera. Downstairs, the impressionist and post-impressionist paintings...More

It is some years since I was first gobsmacked by Monet’s water lilies but each time they work their magic on me, and it would seem on many of the other visitors. The other exhibits are good but, in my eyes, are outshone by Monet

Unless you are in Paris for quite a time, in which case I suggest that Monet's home is a better place to go, I think that you would find this art museum less interesting than The Louvre, D'Orsay or Pompidou centre. The orangerie itself must...More

If you have extra time, this is worth a stop. On a tight schedule, however, it is not interesting enough to warrant your time. The waterlilies, however, are worthy on their own.

Their collection of Money and Renoir was wonderful. The highlight is the full surround room of Monet's water lily piece.

I visited L'Orangerie to see Monet's Waterlilies but it was so much more, Renoir, and more. Worth a visit.

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

Hi! We found that the lines were not long in late June. However, we have noticed a marked difference if you go at lunchtime. We had a late breakfast and showed up at noon so there were no lines at all. When we were done, say... More
