The Orangerie Museum
or Musée de l'Orangerie
is an ideal spot for visitors in Paris to drop in. Situated in the Tuileries Garden, the museum is close to other attractions in Paris worth visiting, such as the Louvre Museum
and Place de la Concorde
, where visitors may admire the tall Egyptian obelisk. For your stay, Heart of Paris Hotels makes sightseeing in our French capital easier by suggesting great rooms at the best rates in the 1st arrondissement and within walking distance of these notable Paris sights.
The Orangerie Museum is famous for the eight paintings donated by Impressionist painter Claude Monet. The series of paintings, called “Les Nymphéas” depict the eight different states of Monet's favourite water lily garden at his home in Giverny, Normandy. With measured strokes of his paintbrush, Monet successfully conveyed the break of dawn in “Matin” (Morning), the illusion of a beginning without an end in “Les Nuages” (The Clouds) and the golden hues of a beautiful sunset in “Soleil Couchant”.
Heart of Paris Hotels recommends obtaining the Paris Museum Pass
that offers unlimited access to museums and monuments in Paris and within the region. During your stay in the French capital, book one of our carefully selected hotels in the Louvre quarter
and then take a nice leisurely walk through the Tuileries Garden
before visiting the Louvre and Orangerie Museums using your Paris Museum Pass.
