Shimmering light, sun-dappled water, and of course: water lilies. This combo ticket is your key to unlock two of Paris's finest museums. The Musée d'Orsay's collection has works by Gauguin, Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, and Van Gogh, among others. The Musée de l'Orangerie is most famous for its massive Water Lilies, but also includes Cézanne, Matisse, Picasso, Rousseau, and more.
Situated in the stunning Beaux-Arts style Gare d'Orsay railway station, opposite the Tuileries Gardens, this building is a city landmark. This museum displays art from 1848 to 1914. Artistically, it spans Impressionism and Art Nouveau. With this ticket you'll slip in a dedicated entrance, bypassing the ticket-hungry throngs outside, and enter a world of serene landscapes and poetry in paint.

Would recommend starting at Impressions on the fifth floor and work your way down. Visit the restaurant on second floor and crane your neck. Lorangerie seems to be really busy.
