Owner description: 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.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

Old railway station with some fantastic exhibits. Worth the wait but allow at least half a day to do it minimal justice

“The best that we visited”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 May 2012

Musee d'Orsay is by far our favorite museum. It is much smaller than the Louvre. If you are looking for the works of the impressionists this is the place to go.

Loved it! The d'Orsay is amazing, but get there early or you'll be negotiating crowds of people
