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.

OK, the Louvre is mandatory ... you can't go to Paris and face your friends admitting you're "not museum people". But the Museum d'Orsay may suit you better and you'll check the museum box as it's more artwork that may relate to the sensibilities of...More

Fabulous setting in an old train station. The building alone is worth the price of admission. Not that the collections aren't great, too. We took the audio guide for a special exhibit but it included the permanent collection as well. Lines appeared long (we went...More

Home to art from the late 1700s to the early 1900s, this museum houses France's vast collection of impressionist & post-impressionist paintings. The building itself is a work of art, having once been a train station that was beautifully converted into a museum. My photo...More

This had many of my personal favorites. Manet, monet, degas, etc etc. Impressionism plus other pieces that pick up where three Louvre leaves off. Asset deck furniture, etc. Less crowds so much more pleasant viewing

This museum is HUGE! But it is perfect. You can see some of everything, and the views from the top floor are amazing.

Didn't have time to see every piece in the museum's collection This museum is larger than it appears both inside and out. What makes this place unique? It's utilized the old railway station very well with hundreds of pieces on several floors.
