Orsay and Orangerie Museums

19 May 2018 ,



A former train station and an Orangery built in 1852 to shelter the orange trees of the garden of the Tuileries during winter. Monet’s Waterlilies (Les Nympheas) are the uncontested star of this gem of a museum. The artist’s famed series is installed in two breathtaking galleries in the Musée de l’Orangerie. Two institutions that host masterpieces of the late XIXth century and beginning of the XXth: impressionist works and the famous Water lilies of Monet.
