These two museums have nothing to do with each other but we wanted to group them on a single page because they are the most beautiful, in our opinion, leaving aside the 3 great museums of Paris.
The Musée Rodin is located in the house where the sculptor himself lived while the Musée de l’Orangerie is a perfect complement to the Musée d’Orsay for having some beautiful Impressionist works.
Because in Paris there are more museums, although the famous one is the Louvre.
Visit the Rodin Museum in Paris
This museum is located in the beautiful Hotel Biron, which was the home of Auguste Rodin.
The Rodin Museum, which consists of beautiful gardens where a large part of the collection is located.
Rodin, in addition to being a sculptor, was also a collector since he was a great lover of art and that is why in this museum we can also see works by other artists.
Among the outstanding works of the museum are above all the sculptures and among them without a doubt the famous The Thinker that is in the gardens. Also noteworthy are The Burghers of Calais and El Beso.
For more information you can visit the official page of the museum: Rodin Museum.
The Musée de la Orangerie, an Impressionist museum
Its impressionist and post-impressionist works make it a perfect complement to the Musée d’Orsay.
It is also very close to it and there is even a joint ticket that you can buy at the ticket offices.
The Musée de la Orangerie is in a small building that was built in 1853 in an area of the Tuileries Gardens.
It has great masterpieces by various artists from the 19th and 20th centuries, including Picasso, Renoir, Gauguin, Matisse, Cezanne and above all Monet, whose Water Lilies are the great jewel that this museum houses in the oval rooms. In addition, it was Monet himself who wanted this work to be exhibited in this place.
