There is no two ways about it. The Musee D'Orsay is a stressful place to visit, even if the art is worth seeing. I certainly wouldn't call the atmosphere welcoming, nor the general layout comfortable. The museum simply must do something about its people management....More

My wife and I both enjoyed viewing the different impressionist art at the Musee d'Orsay. While art can be a personal preference, we enjoyed the variety, maybe in part due to the fact they had a significant Picasso exhibition running at the same time.

Incredible exhibit with works from many of the worlds galleries. Visiting Musee d'Orsay needs at least 3 hours and probably a second visit to do it justice.
