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.

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

I have never felt so uplifted by a museum as here in my life. The art available is indisputable and it appears Mr Bean did not ruin Whistler's Mother😆 The use of light and the architecture, the cafe behind the station clock Issi memorable. As you walk around your senses are titillated then presented with wrought iron from the industrial... More

Great " mis en plat " for this banquet of masterpieces. In a recycled train station ,the pieces of the old Jeu de Palme museum with some new acquisitions offer a great attraction for tourists and locals. The views of the upper floors , the state of the art cafeteria, the domes,of the old train station are a spectacle in... More

This museum it’s good as the Louvre Museum. It’s architure it’s something unreal. Years ago, the building was a train station, the Gare de Orsay,. You can find paintings from Renoir , van Gogh, Monet and others.

It's so beautiful inside, just being there lifts my mood instantly. Not to mention the fact that it holds pieces by Van Gogh and other impressionist artists, as well as art from many different cultures and parts of the world.

Modern art and a beautiful building. Get tickets online so you don't have to cue. The best is the top floor, with the clock and the Parisian view at the terrace.

Second year in a row visiting and I still have not seen everything. This is more organized than the Louvre and plenty to see. Take your time and enjoy your visit.
