Favorite museum in Paris

Modern art and a beautiful building. Get tickets online so you don't have to cue. The best is the top floor, with the clock and the Parisian view at the terrace.

Second year in a row visiting and I still have not seen everything. This is more organized than the Louvre and plenty to see. Take your time and enjoy your visit.

This art gallery, part of the French national museums, is in a restored train station making the architecture part of the pleasure of visiting. As the other Paris art gallery the lines to enter are not as long. The Musée d'Orsay showcases artistic creation in the western world between 1848 and 1914. It's collections include works by Monet, Cezanne, Degas,... More

Nice place to spend a couple of hours or more, it's not as big as Louvre but it's a terrific place to know more about culture.

The Musee d'Orsay has an amazing collection of Impressionist paintings, and they are housed in what was once a railway station. It's a superb gallery and a must-see for anyone with an interest in art. Even those who aren't the types to visit art galleries will enjoy this place.

If you love impressionists you MUST visit this museum! It is absolutely my favorite museum in Paris. First of all for the location: la Gare d'Orsay. Built in 1900 in the occasion of Exposition Universelle, it was a train station. I am in love with the architecture of this building, the combination of steel and glass is magnificent and it...

Beautiful museum with excellent artwork. Loved it more than the Louve. Building architecture is also beautiful. Well worth the wait in line.
