Monet’s Waterlillies

Part of our trip to Paris included a visit to the Musée de l’Orangerie to see Monet’s Water Lillies. Eight panels beautifully arranged in two large oval rooms. It’s breathtaking. Monet said he painted these large panels as a “monument of peace” with the intention of creating a tranquil and meditative space for one to enjoy.

To achieve the complete opposite of the desired effect, visit this museum with a two year old. Despite the overall nervous energy of preventing Flora from doing something in a museum she’s not supposed, it was still a breathtaking experience viewing the Water Lillies.

PSA: Walking around this museum with a child on your shoulders is forbidden.
