The Orangerie Museum showcases masterpieces by impressionist and post-impressionist artists including Monet, Renoir and Picasso

Situated on the bank of the Seine, in the picturesque Tuileries Gardens with the Louvre on one side and the Place de la Concorde on the other, the Orangerie Museum is filled with an inspiring collection of impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces.

The Orangerie was originally built in 1852 by Firmin Bourgeouis, but completed by Ludovico Visconti. Before it was an art gallery of some of the most famous pieces in history, the Orangerie was used as a store house, an examination room and a home for mobilized soliders. Later, the museum became an annex to the Musee de Luxembourg, to which Claude Monet donated paintings as a monument to the end of WWII.

Now the Orangerie showcases works by Cezanne, Renoir, Picasso, Matisse and Modigliani making this a must-see museum for any art lover.

Made Paris fun and easy to navigate!! With only 4 days to spend in Paris, the Paris Pass was awesome. It really cut down on wasted time trying to navigate from one experience to the next. I think we were able to see much more with the Paris Pass. The Hop On Hop Off bus is a terrific idea as well.

Value for money. The Paris pass was great and we were able to visit many museums and attractions at a discount or free. We were also able to travel on the Metro for free! So go ahead and buy one and enjoy your Paris experience.
