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.

I can see why this is rated #1. The museum is spectacular and I would gladly go back any time I am in Paris, unlike The Louvre which is one and done. There's not much to add to what others said except I suggest getting...More

Truly is a special tourist attraction - superb building with awe inspiring exhibits. The Monet paintings were amazing. We didn't have to suffer long queues or overcrowding - we went there on a Friday (late morning).

Everybody knows Louvre but Dorsay is the best museum in Paris. The building is an old train station so it is spacious with beautiful decorations. There are masterpieces you shouldn't miss. Thanks to the elaborate audio guide you can spend a whole day.

Great art, incredible venue - the museum is housed in a former grand train station of Paris and the look of the place does not disappoint. The art (mainly impressionism) is stunning, but the halls where the art is hung are cramped and a bit...More

So much less crowded than the Louvre and just as stunning. The building itself is a work of art. Tons of great pieces to see. If you are in Paris put this on your to do list.

What a wonderful experience for our family. The museum is overwhelming but beautiful. It is definitely a must see while in Paris, better than the Louvre!

Loved it. A must-see! As is the case for all large museums, one visit is far from enough. They have special, limited-time exhibits, so you might want to build your visit around a special exhibit if it tickles your fancy particularly.

The building itself is amazing. Also if you like sculpture you'll be blown away with the sculpture exhibits on the ground floor. The other advantage that Musee D'orsay has over the Louvre is that there is plenty of space to... More

I visited on a Thursday afternoon in December 2016. It's possible that holiday travelers were a major factor in the crowdedness.

You need to go see Manet's Olympia and Luncheon on the grass. There's a lot more famous works there by Degas, Van Gogh, Renoir, etc. Go!
