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 pre-purchased tickets and given the cold weather and the line for tickets it was well worth the pre-purchase. The line at 9:00 for a 9:30 opening was still quite large. The security is quite tight and there is a locker room for back packs...More

This museum is a great value. I could spend hours inside, and it was very affordable. Lines were also much shorter than many other museums.

This is one of my favorite museums in Paris, great art collection but not overwhelming like others, beautiful and delicious restaurants, that even if you have been there before it’s worth revisiting. Perfect activity for a rainy day!

Always prepurchase tickets. Do it online. It will save you from lining up. When you get there you'll likely see a line. Always go to the front--there should be a ticket holder entrance and you'll be able to saunter... More
