After spending 5 hours in the Louvre, this was a perfect second museum. We were on a short weekend trip and decided to check this place out for the Monet's. It was perfect. After spending some time enjoying the Water Lilies, head down to the lower level featuring Matisse, Picasso, Cezanne and many more. It is such a manageable museum... More

This overlooked museum is a must see for everyone. The Monet work took my breath away - the way it is displayed is one of the few places that I could imagine do these huge canvasses justice. It isn't a huge gallery, and an hour would probably suffice - but it is an hour that should not be missed out.... More

Tucked away in the corner of the Jardin des Tuileries, the Musée de l'Orangerie houses one of the most impressive sets of Monet's work - the water lily paintings from Giverny. While the museum houses many other works that are absolutely worth seeing, the custom-built rooms to display these massive paintings allow you the time, space, and ideal lighting to... More

We went here when we had some time to spare. It is a great small museum. Of course the amazing part is the Water Lillies, exhibited in a building built for this purpose. I could come here and sit while listening to Debussy on my headphones and be happy. Downstairs is another collection of Renoir, Picasso, and a couple additional... More

Paris is full of wonderful galleries but you simply must include this one ... even if waterlilies aren't your bag, you'll be spellbound.

This is not a large museum, but it has many masterpieces, including some from Van Gogh, Picasso and more. But the highlight is the two rooms that house Monet's "Water Lilies" murals. They are spectacular. The cost of admission is not much, but the visit is beyond expectations. This is a "must see" when in Paris. You can get a... More

Sitting in the Tuileries Gardens it is easy to overlook this museum with big names like the Lourve and Musee D'Orsay nearby. However, you would be missing out on a great art gallery. The big draw is Monet's Water Lillies which are wonderfully displayed, but on the floor below there is an amazing array of famous name pictures which will... More

This is the place to see Monet's famous Waterlillies. Many other paintings are also housed in this museum.

Myself, my partner and son who has a disability have visited many galleries throughout europe. Whereas most staff ie in Vienna, Munich, Berlin, Salzberg etc have been extremely helpful, in this gallery they were obstructive and unhelpful. Althouh my son showed his disabled bus pass and a letter as evidence of his disability ( which had been accepted elsewhere including... More

This was my sixth trip to Paris, but my first visit here. I'm not sure how I missed it before, because I do love Monet. If you are a Monet fan you must visit here. It wasn't crowded and the two rooms of Monet's works are truly amazing. I liked it so much I returned a second day in Paris.

Thank JB101
