You really need to go and see it to believe it. Amazing art in a structurally magnificent building. Phenomenal!
I agree with some of the other reviewers that the Louvre is daunting and you can easily get lost- when you go, make sure you see the major attractions- and then get out! Musee d'Orsay is the best museum in Paris. The impressionist paintings were all in the Louvre and they moved most out to the Orsay (an old train... More
Being the first Sunday in the month, entry was free so we expected the very long queues. People watching passed the time in the queue though...you get to see all sorts! The setting is stunning and it was a treat to see so many well known works of art by famous impressionists. Not all the exhibits were to our taste... More
An Impressionist lover's dream, this museum is not to be missed. There are more famous works by Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, Degas and Cézanne than you can shake a stick at. Seriously. You can hardly turn around without tripping over a Monet. An absolute joy.

We spent half a day at Louvre and got lost several times--too many floors and wings. But when we went to Musee d'Orsay we had a great time. Building itself is a work of art, with views of Seine from clocktower. Terrific galleries of French Impressionists. You won't see Monet or Renoir at the Louvre!
Musee d'Orsay is one of my favorite museums in the world. While it still has much of the hustle and bustle of the Louvre, there are still moments where one can simple stand in front of one of the world's greatest masterpieces and get lost in the art.
