Musée de l'Orangerie

In 1922 Claude Monet offered eight of his giant Water Lilies panels to the French state, as a way of commemorating the end of WWI. His only condition was that they be displayed in a suitable venue. The French government found the perfect spot: the Orangerie in the Tulieries Garden.

The Orangerie was built in 1852 as a winter shelter for the orange trees that lined the garden of the Tuileries Palace. For a period of time it was also used as a storehouse for goods, a bunk for soldiers, and as a flexible exhibition space. Monet's generous gift transformed it into the Musée de l'Orangerie, a pre-eminent gallery of Impressionist and post-Impressionist paintings.

The huge (and hugely impressive) Monet paintings are definitely the main event, but they are far from the only reason to visit. The museum also contains works by Cézanne, Matisse, Modigliani, Picasso, Renoir, and Rousseau, among others.

Went to see the Monet murals. They were a sight to behold.
For an elderly man losing sight to near blind, Monet remained
an extremely talented artist.

Musée de l'Orangerie is not overly crowded, so you can take your time with the paintings.

Monet's stunning Water Lilies are set in two beautiful galleries that show off the work to magnificent effect. Wonderful collection of other impressionists and modernists downstairs too.

For Monet fans a visit to the Orangerie, preferably in combination with a visit to the Musée Marmottan Monet, is an absolute must.
