Built in 1852 by Napoleon III to shelter the orange trees of the Tuileries Garden, the building took on a new life after World War I. In 1921, the building was handed over to the Under-Secretariat of State for Fine Arts to create a space for living artists to display their works. In 1922, Monet donated his Water Lilies, which continues to be one of the most priceless works of art housed here.

Today, the Orangerie Museum stands as a gallery dedicated to Impressionist and post-Impressionist paintings. It contains works by Paul Cézanne, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and Henri Rousseau, among others.
