"The Musée de l'Orangerie is a museum located on the Place de la Concorde side of the Tuileries- so close to the Louvre it ends up being overlooked. It's known for its collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings, including works by Claude Monet, Paul Cézanne, and Henri Matisse. The most famous work in the museum is Monet's Water Lilies, which span two oval rooms. The museum is relatively small, making it easy to navigate, and it's a great choice for those who want to see some beautiful art without having to fight the crowds at the larger museums nearby."
