About this activity

Entrance ticket
  • Immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the Impressionists
  • Savor Monet’s masterpieces in the Water Lilies Gallery
  • Learn how Impressionism was born & how it led the transition to modern art
  • Discover the rich history of the Orangerie Museum
Orangerie Museum is a gallery of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings. The larger-than-life Water Lilies by Monet are the main attraction, but they are far from the only reason to visit. Situated in an old greenhouse in the heart of Paris, this museum is notable for having a collection of Monet's Water Lilies as well as the Walter Guillaume collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art. The amazing Walter Guillaume collection on the Lower Level allows the visitor to understand the evolution from Impressionism to Modern Art. The influence of African Art on the early Modernists led them to create the first abstract paintings. The visitor will also discover that the Orangerie building, once a greenhouse, was part of a large palace, a twin to the Louvre, constructed by Queen Catherine de Medici in 1564.
