Do you plan to visit the most beautiful museums of Paris? Reserve your Musée de l'Orangerie ticket right now and discover an amazing place which holds the works of the greatest impressionist painters. Most notably, in this museum, Claude Monet displayed his Water Lilies cycle, which he completed, for the most part, on his property in Giverny. But you will also find impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces painted by the greatest masters like Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Gauguin, Amedeo Modigliani, and also Pablo Picasso.
The Musée de l'Orangerie owes its name to the building in which it is located today. Constructed in 1852 as the winter shelter for the exotic plants in the Tuileries Gardens, most particularly the orange trees, it features large windowed spaces. The contrast between its architecture, which is essentially classical, and the presence of glass virtually everywhere, from the glass roof to the immense picture windows on the south side, overlooking the Seine, bring a unique sense of harmony to the space.
Reserve your skip-the-line ticket to the Musée de l'Orangerie and you will be impressed by the aesthetic appeal of this museum, which was designed specifically to showcase works of art. An oval-shaped room, almost virginal white with a luminescent ceiling, creates an idyllic setting to embrace Monet's immense Water Lilies. The atmosphere here is both grandiose and intimate, evoking a feeling of peace and quiet, not disturbed by the lively hubbub of Paris, buzzing with countless noises on the other side of the glass.
Don't delay any longer and avoid long lines at the ticket office. By ordering your skip-the-line ticket for the Musée de l'Orangerie on your smartphone, tablet or computer, from the comfort of your home, you'll save valuable time that can be spent in prolonged contemplation of impressionist masterpieces. Linger, for example, in front of "Le déjeuner sur l'herbe" by Paul Cézanne, or gaze upon "Girls at the Piano" by Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Also take the time to truly appreciate "Three Sisters" by Henri Matisse.
This exceptional collection was made possible, in part, with the public establishment of the Musée d'Orsay and the Musée de l'Orangerie in 2010, joining the two museums.
