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.

Taking place where the Louvre leaves off, time era art wise. Yes, once you have viewed the Louvre head over to the d'Orsay. If in Paris for a few days be sure to use the Paris Museum Pass. Saves time by avoiding a line.

The Musee d'Orsay has the best collection of Impressionist art. They have several Monets. Renoirs, Degas, all the way up to van Gogh. The building itself is worth the visit. It is the old train station.

Very good to see loads of impressionists together. Allow a few hours to visit. Design pieces also worth seeing (and smaller numbers of visitors)

I have never seen more Van Gough's in one location in my entire life. The Monet's were plentiful and ones that were rare. Excellent Degas collection as well.

A facinating museum. Loved the huge clock from the old railroad station (which preceded the museum). Lots of artists, having set up their easels, copying the paintings (which I didn't know was even allowed in a museum). I'll take this over the Louvre any day. Just big enough that you can see everything in one visit.

We bought the combined ticket for Musée d'Orsay and Musée de l'Orangerie which undoubtedly were the best two museums we visited. Housed in a refurbished train station this museum is both full of great art, but is manageable and we really enjoyed the art rather than rushing through it (like we did at the Louvre). Amazing works by Matisse, Degas,... More

You need at least a full morning at the Musee d'Orsay. And don't miss the windows behind the clock for a peek out over the rooftops of Paris to the Seine and the Louvre beyond. Spectacular! Be sure to book your tickets before you go to avoid standing in a long line. This isn't easy to do because you have... More
