Explore the museum at your own pace without waiting for large group tours to move in sync so as to maximize your time marveling at the renowned art inside. Visit the Musée de l'Orangerie—an art gallery of impressionist and post-impressionist paintings located in the west corner of the Tuileries Gardens next to the Place de la Concorde in Paris. Though most famous for being the permanent home for eight Water Lilies murals by Claude Monet, see the museum's other works by Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, Amedeo Modigliani, Pablo Picasso, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri Rousseau, Alfred Sisley, Chaim Soutine, and Maurice Utrillo, among others. Feel a closer connection between the two parts of the collection thanks to the new layout of the Musée de l’Orangerie: Water Lilies and the École de Paris (School of Paris) in the early 20th century. Enjoy the elegant, fluid, educational, and stimulating circuit. At the entrance to the collection, see large polyptychs by Joan Mitchell (loan from the Musée national d’Art moderne) and large-scale works by the modern 'primitives' (Picasso, Douanier Rousseau, Derain, Modigliani, Matisse, etc.). The monographic galleries allow you to get a new, more up-close, and comfortable perspective of the works. Simply show your voucher directly at the dedicated entrance for visitors with pre-bought tickets. After a security check, walk straight inside.

The Monet lily paintings were gorgeous and the viewing rooms were quiet. The downstairs area of the museum is not that big and the entire gallery can be walked in under 90 minutes. It's a great pit stop before going to the Louvre which is a 10-12 minute walk from this museum.

I had a wonderful time seeing the beatutiful collection of Monet Waterlilies. A small and intimate location with a lovely giflshop. Loved it

Go in the morning if you can, less crowded and you dont have to queue! Magical experience!

Wonderful layout of the paintings, well located seats to rest and enjoy.

Visit of the museum and stroll on the Seine went perfectly
