Musée de l'Orangerie
Fronting the magnificent Jardin des Tuilieries and looking out across the Seine River, the Musée de l'Orangerie (Orangerie Museum) is situated in one of Paris’ most idyllic locations. The prestigious art museum is home to a number of masterpieces, but it’s most famous for its series of Monet Water Lilies paintings. 
 
The Basics
Visitors can enjoy priority access by pre-booking skip-the-line tickets, join a guided tour, or explore independently with or without an audio guide. Alternatively, visit as part of a group or private tour of Paris, a walking tour of the Montmartre neighborhood, or a Paris art history tour. Combination tickets are also available for the Musée de l'Orangerie and the Musée d'Orsay, while free admission is offered to holders of the Paris Museum Pass.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • On-site facilities include restrooms, a gift shop, and a museum café. 
  • Large bags must be left in the free cloakroom. 
  • The museum is fully wheelchair accessible. 

How to Get There
The Musée de l'Orangerie is located at the southwest corner of the Jardin des Tuileries, bordered by Place de la Concorde to the west and the Seine River to the south. The most scenic way to arrive at the museum is on foot, either by walking down the Champs Elysée from the Arc de Triomphe, or by strolling through the Jardin des Tuileries from The Louvre.

Transformed into an art gallery in the early 20th century, the Musée de l'Orangerie displays a varied collection of 19th- and 20th-century art, with some fantastic examples of impressionist, post- impressionist, expressionist, and modern art. The star attraction of the museum’s permanent collections is Monet’s Water Lilies, displayed in a pair of evocatively lit ovular rooms. In the basement, the Jean Walter and Paul Guillaume collection brims with masterpieces by Renoir, Cezanne, Matisse, Modigliani, Picasso, and Soutine, and others.
