This beautiful museum, once a railroad station, now houses a staggering collection of Impressionist art, as well as other items created between 1848 and 1914. In 2011, the museum is running a renovation of the top floor (impressionist gallery). Only ground and medium floor are accessible. The top floor will re-open on the 20th of October. Meanwhile, some impressionist masterpieces are not visible.

A beautiful and impressive museum easily accessible from the metro. In addition, awesome metro stop in its own right as you have a terrific view of the Eiffel Tower, Ferris wheel and many monuments. Clearly the two rooms wrapped entirely by Monet and his Lilies would be the reason for this trip! A terrific museum dedicated in the most impressive... More

This is the most important museum in Paris, with the finest collection of impressionist paintings to be found anywhere. converted train station and recently renovated, the art work leaves you breathless: Renoir, Manet, Monet, Pissaro, Callibotte, Suerot, Degas...and especially Van Gogh, it is the quintessential art lovers experience.

Musee d'Orsay has a wonderful collection of art and must be visited at least once if you are a fan of impressionist or post-impressionist painting. The building itself is a real treat as well. You can easily "do" this museum in a few hours. So take your time and luxuriate in this sacred collection of master works by Monet, Manet,... More

Being in Paris and not visiting the Musee d'Orange is like hot chocolate without the chocolate! Master piece after master piece, history and its excellence, all on display under one roof here. And Monets' water lilies - breathe taking!!! A must visit when in Paris

We make it a policy of taking the guided tour if it is available. This one was well worthwhile - 1.5 hours covering some of the highlights of the collection and interesting exhibits.

This is the second time to Musee d'Orsay. It is a favorite for sure. Just the right size to wander around for an afternoon. The cafe and restaurant are both lovely if you need to take a little break in between viewing so many of you favorite paintings. We took our 16 and 22 year old with us. We found... More

I needn't say much. The Musee d'Orsay has one of the world's great collections of Impressionist and Post Impressionist art. We had been warned to arrive early due to the massive crowds, but that actually turned out not to be necessary, at least in early April.

Great art, enjoyable experience, makes me want to drink more and paint more and potentially end up in a looney bin a la Van Gogh ha

Great except for the crowds of people taking photos of each painting as they walked quickly past, no appreciation of the significance of the artwork. The staff in the restaurant were so friendly and the service was fast.
