If you love Monet, you should definitely come. As someone who has also been to the Marmot Monet museum, I was fascinated by the way the paintings in the Orangerie were brought together and presented as a whole. I've already been to the Marmot Monet museum, don't think there's no need for this. Definitely go

Booked a tour ticket in advance via GetYourGide. Good choice because there was a long line in front of the museum. Now I could walk straight through and enjoy the permanent and changing collection in the museum. Monet's water lilies are really worth a visit. Wonderful environment to enjoy these beautiful works

Barbara was really knowledgable. She interacted so well with my 9 year old granddaughter drawing her into the paintings and the artists lives

The Museum is small, but it has many works of great importance. If it only had Monet's Water Lilies it would be worth it.

Incredible! Monets Water Lilies are worth the trip to Paris themselves!
