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.

Phenomenal. Best value. Useful for all attractions and great for the Metro. Never had to worry about purchasing tickets. Great variety of attractions. Worth the price.

Fabulous! The Paris Pass was a great buy. Not just because for many sites there was no need to purchase any more tickets, but getting to the front of the line is essential for seeing everything you want and need to see. From the moment we picked up the pass, we began using the metro pass and that was so easy. Also, I purchased the Paris Pass online from the U.S. I was provided with great information about how and where to pick up the pass. That made the whole process fabulous!
