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.

By eating in the restaurant instead of café, we discovered a palace of paintings and mirrors. The Impressionists remain, as ever, the highlight for me.

Smaller scale Museum, lots to see great open spaces and best of all at least two very nice and well appointed restaurants inside. Stay longer and enjoy a good meal, or a drink.

Amazing museum, just too much to see for one visit! Would highly recommend blocking out a few hours and going with a priority of things you want to see --- otherwise you may miss things because you run out of time!

The building itself is amazing. Also if you like sculpture you'll be blown away with the sculpture exhibits on the ground floor. The other advantage that Musee D'orsay has over the Louvre is that there is plenty of space to... More

You need to go see Manet's Olympia and Luncheon on the grass. There's a lot more famous works there by Degas, Van Gogh, Renoir, etc. Go!
