Musee d L’Orangerie

Behind the Louvre are the Tuileries Gardens, and there you’ll find this museum which focuses on Monet, a love-hate artist for many. The museum was constructed to his specification in 1922, after he donated 8 paintings to the French state. Extensive renovations uncovered the remains of 17th century fortifications and the museum’s re-opening stalled until 2006. There’s an English language tour at 2:30 every Monday and Thursday. Closed Tuesdays. LG
