What to expect

All enthusiasts of Impressionist art owe it to themselves to pay a visit to the Musée de l' Orangerie during their stay in Paris! Situated in the inspiring setting of the Tuileries garden, the Orangerie has been gathering since the beginning of the 20th century some of the most emblematic paintings by the great masters of Impressionism: Paul Cézanne, Auguste Renoir, Henri Matisse or even Picasso's youthful paintings, which form a harmonious and timeless ensemble, to be enjoyed at your own pace and as a complement to the works of the Musée d' Orsay.

The soul of the site, however, is above all inhabited by the painter Claude Monet, who chose the museum to house eight of his famous Waterlilies. These gigantic canvases gracefully adorn two circular rooms and remain to this day one of the most fascinating artistic ensembles visible in Paris.

C'est une merveille. Les nymphéas de Monet n'ont pas d'équivalent au monde. Franchement, pour moi c'est le plus beau musée de Paris  !
