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.

We were taken aback at the length of queues to enter D'Orsay - even with pre-purchased tickets we waited approx 30 minutes to go through security screening, with a far longer line for those who didn't already have a ticket. The gallery is worth seeing...More

All the great artists are here. Was even surprised to see Whistler's Mother! Also love their art neuvo section with the furniture. It's on the Paris Museum Pass, so get that to keep your museum costs down!

I enjoyed visiting the d'Orsay. The galleries were well planned and the collection was amazing. Purchase a Museum Pass and skip the long lines at this museum and many others. We dined in cafe and had an excellent lunch.

Very beautiful arts, multiple galleries, and not as crowded as expected. Take time to visit all the areas.

Only one drawback: many showcases with several objects leave it unclear which explication board is for which object.

If you manage to go here you'll be amazed at the place itself great imaginative architecture abounds. Actually that in itself is worth viewing. There is a lot to see so give yourself a lot of time. The Van Gogh room is utterly awe inspiring....More
