Musée de l’Orangerie
Jardin des Tuileries

The Orangerie Museum is housed inside an old orange greenhouse in the Jardin des Tuileries which is located near Place de la Concorde and the Louvre Museum. In this museum you will see artwork by painters as famous as Cézanne, Renoir, Picasso and Rosseau. There are also temporary exhibitions and video documentaries in the audiovisual room.

The museum was opened in 1927 when an orange greenhouse was used to host Monet’s Nymphéas. The private collection at the Orangerie Museum was later handed over to the French Government and today there is a large collection of impressionist and post-impressionist art.
