Monet at Musée de l'Orangerie


After six long years of renovations at the Musée de l'Orangerie, Monet’s Waterlilies (Les Nympheas) have never looked better. The artist's famed series is installed in two breathtaking galleries that were once hailed as the “Sistine Chapel of Impressionism.” Monet, however, is only one of many treasures in store for you at the Orangerie. This jewel of a museum is also home to the exceptional modern-art collection of Paul Guillaume and Jean Walter, featuring paintings by Renoir, Cézanne, Picasso, Modigliani, and Matisse.

Your private tour will begin with this collection on the first floor, as you follow the development of modern art since Impressionism. This approach will help you to understand the innovation of Monet’s late work in context, so that your own experience with his Waterlilies will be a more meaningful one.

About this Museum

Originally built in 1852 as winter shelter for orange trees from the nearby Tuileries gardens, the Musée de l’Orangerie became a temple to Monet’s love of nature, when the artist’s Waterlily paintings were installed here in 1927.

Open everyday, except on Tuesdays.
