Musee de l'Orangerie reviews
One usually goes to see the Monet painting here, but I like this classic museum for the special expos which can be terrific. If the special expo is popular, there can be a line of people waiting to..... more »
What a great museum. I feel like everyone working there is very cultivated, so polite, and friendly to visitors. I especially love the souvenir shop, so many good books. more »
One of my favorite museums in all of Paris. I could sit in the galleries for hours and just stare at the art work. Well designed with lots to see. Seating at the appropriate areas so you can just sit and enjoy the artwork. Easy to get to and was surprised at how inexpensive the tickets were to get in. Nice gift shop here with offerings for the collector or casual tourist.
Lovely museum. Please note that the main gallery is closed until March 2020. The Money gallery is still open and is spectacular! Make sure to sit insane soak every painting of the 8 water lilies, as each one is a perfect reflection of Monet's vision and style.
