Overview

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.

All the art (including the Impressionists) is wonderful. Often I have read to just go to the top floor, but don’t miss the Van Goghs on the second floor. There is always a line even for people who have tickets, there is security everywhere in...More

This is by far my favorite museum in Paris. It's not so overwhelming as the Louvre, plus the impressionist paintings are amazing. I've been there twice and would definitely go again. Make sure you see the clock view on the third floor and their gift...More

Beautiful building. Small and focused. Easy to see the great works with in 1 - 2 hours. If I had a choice between the Musee d'Orsay and the Louvre - choose the Musee d'Orsay (and the Musee de l'Orangerie that is just across the Seine.

Why one would queue for hours at the Louvre when you can go to the Musee d' Orsay and see all the big guns, is beyond me. It's charming and although there's no da Vinci, I spent a gorgeous afternoon enjoying the art

This is the place to see Impressionist paintings up close and personal. It is busy, but a lovely setting with art we had only enjoyed in books. Hope to return.

You do not have to be an art enthusiast to appreciate the art here. You will not feel overwhelmed like in the Met, the Louvre, Hermitage or the Vatican. Space is open and the major exhibit is easy to navigate and found. We saw some...More

Interesting museum to be in because of it's previous use. The art here was, for me, more interesting than that in the Louvre.

The impressionist area (5th floor) of the museum is worth working through the crowds. The outdoor balcony off the restaurant affords a great view of the city.

There was a place to check items before you enter. I believe it was free.

We ordered the tickets online at Paris site. We visited all 3 and having the tickets ahead really helped. We paid some extra to have them delivered to our home before we left.
