Musee de l'Orangerie in Jardin des Tuileries
This first HD photo shows the front facade and main entrance to the Musee de l'Orangerie, which was originally constructed within the Tuileries Gardens to house oranges during the winter months, and hence the name Orangery, spelt Orangerie in French.
East facade of Musee de l'Orangerie
Yet here you can see the back facade of the Musee de l'Orangeries that was constructed during the reign of Napoleon III, being designed and constructed by the architect Firmin Bourgeois, although this building was completed by his successor, Ludovico Visconti.
North facade Musee de l'Orangerie
Even though the original purpose was to hold the orange trees for the Palais des Tuileries, it was used for other purposes like during World War I, but at the start of the 1920s it was decided this should become a museum, and it was Georges Clemenceau, a French politician, statesman and friend of the famous painter Claude Monet who made this project happen.

Now this close up photo shows a small decorative element located on the side of the Musee de l'Orangerie depicting harvest, but when it changed to a museum, its main purpose was the redesign in order to hold a series of decorative panels painted on canvas called the Water Lilies, or Nympheas, which Claude Monet donated to the French state and were first opened to the public in 1927.

Over the years the Musee de l'Orangerie has undergone many renovations, even though the facade is still the same as when it was constructed in the 1850s, and even the Water Lilies by Claude Monet have had major restoration conducted, yet as well as these, there are paintings from impressionist and post impressionist painters, called the Water Guillaume Collection.
North facade Musee de l'Orangerie looking NW
You will be able to discover the Musee de l'Orangerie located within the Jardin des Tuileries on the south western side of the garden close to the Place de la Concorde, with its impressive collection of paintings including some by Picasso, Matisse, Renoir and Modigliani, etc, as well as Monet of course.

And it is located on the terrace that was originally constructed by Andre Le Notre, being named the Terrasse du Bord de l'Eau, due to it being on the side of the garden by the River Seine, yet the entrance to the museum is on the part of the terrace that was named the Terrasse de l'Orangerie, which overlooks the square where you will find the western entrance to the Jardin des Tuileries.
