The Orangerie Museum in Paris, France, is a modern art museum. The lower level contains paintings by Picasso, Cézanne, Renoir and Matisse. The museum is not very big, the lower level only contains a few rooms. What is really special about this museum is on the main level. Eight huge paintings from Monet's Water Lilies (or Nymphéas) completely surround a naturally lit space in two oval rooms. It is a very peaceful place to sit and enjoy the art.

Estimated Visiting Time

The museum is fairly small - you can see everything quickly in about 30 minutes.


Regular admission costs 7.50€. The museum is also free on the first Sunday of each month. Admission is included with the Paris Museum Pass.
