.I've been to Paris more times than
I can remember. However, it took many visits before I finally heard
about this museum. And, I don't know how that is possible!
the opposite corner of the Tuilerie Garden from the Louvre, the Musee
L'Orangerie is a treasure to behold. In the distance you can see the
Eiffel Tower and at the entrance you get a close up of one of Rodin's
sculptures. So, it's great even before you set foot in the museum.
The L'Orangerie has housed Monet's the
Nympheas, a collection of his waterlillies, since 1927. That's
what you expect to see upon entering. The additional surprise was
all the other masterpieces collected on display in the basement.
Unbelievable. It was all a surprise for me, but now you know.
