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.

Loved this converted train station that is now a world class art museum located on the banks of the Seine and accross from the Louvre. Classic interior that with a wide open feel. You MUST go to the Impressionists on the 5th floor and when there, look over the inside from above and look out the clock. Fantastic.

Great Museum! I was able to admire paintings of my favourite painters like Van Gogh, Renoir, Gauguin, etc. Clearly identified and accessible and wonderful architecture to admire.

Just the building itself is incredible. We visited because I wanted to see the Van Gogh paintings, and I wasn't disappointed. I loved the impressionist collection too. My only regret is that we didn't put enough time to one side to appreciate it fully, only arriving late in the day.

I arrived at the Orsay just after 5:30 on a Thursday evening. I walked right in without a security or ticket line and was immediately transported by the beauty of the building. The place was not empty, but I rarely shared the space in front of any piece of art with another person - the experience was personal and uplifting.... More

My favorite artists in the world at the D'Orsay. The building itself is striking and prime for some lovely photos. Very nicely laid out and good for even a couple of hours to see the bulk of the collection.

In addition, In the rear of the museum and at the top floor, with a walk down, is the most beautiful collection of impressionistic art I have ever seen. The Met... More
