It’s time for the Musée de l’Orangerie to close indefinitely due to the risks related to coronavirus. The museum suspends all activities until further notice, like many other places.

The Musée de l'Orangerie also closes indefinitely. The museum alludes to the health risks related to coronavirus and prefer limiting the virus propagation by shutting down activities. This decision follows the announcements of the Head of State, Emmanuel Macron, and the ban of public gatherings of over 100 people presented by Edouard Philippe on Friday March 13th.

Tweet reads: “Due to the health situation, the Musée de l’Orangerie is closed until further notice. Thank you for your understanding”.

Exhibitions and permanent collections are no longer visible and indefinitely. Don’t hesitate to have a look at the health recommendations.

The Musée de l’Orangerie isn’t the only one to choose to shut down in this uncertain period. Many museums are suspending their activities so are some venues for concerts and even theme parks. Find all coronavirus-related news on

 Careful: due to the Corona Virus epidemic, it’s highly recommended to limit your trips to avoid infection risks. If you want to go out, think about washing your hand regularly and cough or sneeze in your elbow or a disposable tissue. Greet without handshake or use disposable tissue and throw it in a bin. Be cautious and try to protect people with a higher contamination risk.
