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.

What a fabulous way to spend an afternoon, breathtaking to see the Impressionists on the 5th floor, like lovely old friends that I have loved for years but never seen in the flesh. The building is almost as wonderful as the art - a fabulous deco station from 1900s - a perfect way to use such a beautiful building. We... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the Musee d'Orsay. The building itself is spectacular and once a railway station. The artworks were magnificent and did not disappointment. So many amazing artists under one roof. A must when visiting Paris!!!

Le Louvre is huge and difficult to navigate. This museum is smaller, more personal and yet, equally impressive. The major works of art include those from Monet, Matisse, Manet, Van Gogh and many more. All are easy to see in a less crowded venue. We had a lovely visit. In addition, the cafe on the fifth floor is excellent. It... More

I would say this is definitely a must-see location to get a taste of Paris and the city's love for art and history. While the art and experience was amazing, I am not a fan of crowds. Unfortunately we chose to go to the museum on one of their free Sundays when almost all other museums in the area were... More

I loved it for two reasons: one, for all the paintings it has. A lot of famous artists and such a great variety of them, also. And second, the architecture of the museum itself is one to wow anyone visiting it. It is a truly magnificent place, worth the long visit.

If you are a fan of Impressionist Art, the Musee d'Orsay is not to be missed. Suggest going in the afternoon on a Thursday when the museum is open late. But your tickets in advance on-line and bypass the long stand by line.

In a city boasting some fabulous museums and attractions this has to be one of the best. A lot smaller in size than the Louvre the Musee d'Orsay boasts some fantastic treasures. There are miles of Van Gogh paintings along with a heap of Rodin sculptures. Allow plenty of time as there is lots to see. Security is tight and... More

This museum is a must for visitors to Paris. The art collection is wonderful. Plan to spend at least two days here. The Impressionism collection is most impressive.

One of my all time favorites. Plenty of Impressionism and other art. Take the time and check out the works by Honore Daumier, very clever.
