Musée de l'Orangerie, Water Lilies by Monet
Water Lilies by Monet in the Orangerie

Housed in a magnificent building constructed in 1853 as an orangery, the Musée de l’Orangerie (Orangerie Museum) features an impressive collection of Impressionist paintings, including masterpieces by Monet. 


The museum’s most famous halls are where Monet’s Water Lilies oil paintings are found. The artist gave precise instructions on how the paintings had to be hung, giving the impression that these enormous murals come alive when you walk into the oval halls.

L’Orangerie also contains works by renowned artists such as Cézanne, Renoir, Picasso, Rousseau and Matisse. 

Small but charming

In our opinion, the Musée de l’Orangerie is one of the best art museums along with the Musée d’Orsay. The collection is small but fascinating and the building is magnificent. Visitors won't be disappointed.
