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.

“Great art”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

Except for the que it was well worth the wait - remember this museum and the Lourvre are closed on certain days of the week so check the web before planning your visit. The Lourve is closed on Mondays and Musee d'Orsay on Tuesdays.

“great art within an old train station”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

This museum is very crowded in the summer, but has a lot to offer, most notably the impressionist artists, home furnishings from different eras, and a great collection of sculptures. The clocks from the old train station are really neat to see from the inside.
