Loved the transformation of this old train station into a beautiful museum. Picasso temporary exhibit was cool to see! Unfortunately on the day we visited the upper floors were closed and no one told us until we got to the front of the ticket line....More

We arrived late in the day, so we only had time for one gallery. It was crowded (Sunday), but easy to navigate regardless. I've always enjoyed Renoir and Degas. This visit solidified that determination.

Helpful hint: buy your ticket in advance with the skip the line ticket. It might cost €4 more, but you’ll save two hours of waiting in line.

Definitely a fascinating place, while the ticket sale on TripAdvisor is fake. I was denied by the museum. So don’t buy it, buy tickets on spot

Musee d'Orsay was our second stop (after Versailles) on the 4 day Paris Museum Pass and it didn't disappoint. I especially enjoyed the impressionists and French artists section. Was kind of disappointed that Whistler's Mother was out on loan to another museum, which surprisingly ended...More

Magnificent architecture with a lot of fine paintings and sculptures, but what was really amazing the Picasso collection, it was a real pleasure to see the trials and the primitive drawings of the artist

If you are a fan of the ‘impressionists,’ this is the place for you. The building, a renovated train station, itself a treasure, holds some of the most majestic art in the world. Hand held tour phones are in English as well as other languages.

Everyone LOVES the Louve - not me; too large and too pretentious. This was a very nice museum, it personifies exactly what I want when I go to a museum.

Backpacks were not allowed to be carried in the museum. They required all backpacks to be checked and stowed in the museum coat check. Security was tight as we were there on December 1st, which was the day the protests/riots... More
