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.

Wonderful way to experience art, well worth it, but if you can, buy tickets online or thru your concierge at hotel.

Great way to spend a day in Paris! Skip the restaurant. Be sure to study the map as to your taste in art. Don't miss Rodins "Inferno"

Interesting museum, with several temporary exhibitions, in an old train station. Recommended if you have seen the rest of the main attractions in Paris.

We love d'Orsay! What more is there to say? We suggest you avoid Thursday evenings (open late) as it seems the entire City wants to take advantage of the late opening hours. plan two hours. --> at least!

Here you will find Paris' collection of 19th Century art. Lots of treasures from the pages of your art history text book. All set in a beautiful reclaimed train station. One can spend days here. Buy your tickets in advance at FNAC as the lines at the ticket booth can be long. Be prepared for crowds. Consider going on a... More

We had skip-the-line with audio tickets from Paris City Vision. Because we reserved the tickets at 10 am, there was no line up so I don't think you need to pay extra to skip-the-line at this time of year. The audio was helpful but a couple of the paintings were not on display. The audio tour from the museum itself... More

One of the best museums in Europe. A stunning collection of Impressionist Paintings in a beautifully converted and renovated former Train station. We visit this museum on every trip to Paris. They have different exhibitions and nice musical performances some evenings. There is a nice restaurant on the top floor to get a bite to eat after seeing the museums... More

This museum is large. We spent 6 hours here, and could have spent longer, except they were closing. There is a wonderful collection from the late 19th and into the 20th century. Think Cezanne, Renoir, Sisley, Van Gogh, along with their contemporaries. Lots of opportunity to compare and contrast styles of these artists. There is also an excellent collection of... More

Your favorite museum if you like impressionists particularly, but all sorts of arts. You should plan a few days there. Exquisite views from the top, overlooking the Seine. A must in Paris.
