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.

The Paris Pass was worth every penny I spent and so much more!! The Metro passes alone are a gold mine! Makes travel soooo much easier in the city! And then there are all the great places you get into for free!

It was my second time using a Paris Pass, I would do so again with no hesitation. I recommend the Paris Pass, London Pass etc. to all my friends who are traveling to such places. I have used the Paris Pass twice and the London Pass once. They work great, save me time and money, but more importantly time.
