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.

The collection at the Musée d'Orsay is amazing and well worth seeing in person. The limited time span of the collection (1848 to 1914) allows it to tell a coherent story about a time period when Paris was the centre of art.

If the various collections of art ( painting, furniture, sculpture ) are housed in a fantastic building. Everywhere you look is a delight the cafe is a fine choice for a quick bite

This gallery, a former train station, is the perfect place to displace impressionist art! It invites you to leisurely walk and view. I loved it. There’s a bit of older art paving the way to more modern work. Guided tours are great but there self...More

Amazing place. Get your hotel to get your tickets and avoid the queues/crowds and enter via door C. You may need more than one day to see everything. The restaurant had the most delicious asparagus risotto!!!!

Bought online tickets (hardly any line at 1100am, so really no need to do so). Enjoyed the museum with informative panels in French and English. Took us about 3 hours to cover most exhibitions.

we visited mid morning. separate line for museum pass holders - maybe 5 minutes. Other line on other side of entrance was about 15 minutes - so not a major difference. But things can change hourly of course.

If you don't like Impressionists, then you'll find Musee D'Orsay boring. If you do like them (as I do, and as most art critics do, perhaps above any other genre) then this is porbably the best collection in the world... More
