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.

Best experience ever at the best price I had a wonderful experience with the Paris Pass. I visited all the places that I wanted. I skip all the lines and the price was very reasonable. I wll highly recommend the Paris Pass to any traveler. The hop in and hop off bus was wonderful too. I also used the Paris train and all of these atractions were included in the Paris Pass.
