There are innumerable museums in Paris, but almost none can compare in terms of the beauty of the building in which the museums are housed. The works of art in the d'Orsay are priceless and beautiful, so come for those - but take some time...More

We went on a Sunday and the crowds weren't nearly what we anticipated. It was so nice because it didn't feel crowded at all. I would still purchase tickets a head of time. It's worth the price and some.

Don't miss this museum. If you love Impressionist art, this is the museum to tour. Apparently the Louvre rejected the Impressionists in their time - so what the Louvre missed, the D'Orsay displays on the grandest scale.

This is my favorite building of all the museums. The ceiling and openness is staking. Then you add in the variety of artwork inside and you get a WOW factor!!

I appreciate being able to see all the greats in one place. Monet, Van Gogh, and others. The Orsay is much more enjoyable than the Lourve in my opinion .

Id suggest getting a museum pass... You can buy online or when you get there. It gives you access to most of the museums you will want to go to and gives you "fast pass" entry to some of them as well. Check it out online... More
