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 should start by saying that Impressionism and Post Impressionism are my two favorite schools of art and so this was one of my favorite sights in our 8 day stay in Paris. The museum is housed in a renovated 19th train station that sits...More

I'm not a great fan of museums in general but this one certainly brings you great examples of the arts from renowned historical figures e.g Vincent van Gogh and so on.

This was easy to get into. We got there at 3pm and there were no lines, yet still had plenty of time to look at things. DONOT miss the view from the outside balcony (enter near the front in the upper level)

Absolutely must visit this incredible museum while in Paris. A highlight is Rodin's large plaster sculpture inspired by Dante's Inferno on the second floor. Incredible to see such excellent sculpture in a beautiful museum that used to be a train station.

If you have time for only one museum in Paris, make it the Musee d'Orsay. The building itself is magnificent and art is, of course, spectacular. Rooms are well organized. The entry line was very long when we went so I'd suggest doing some homework...More

This really is my favorite museum. It has a great standing collection, and enough different styles and famous pieces to appeal to anyone. It is small enough to not be overwhelmed, but still make you walk away knowing you have seen something important. The building...More

If you don't like Impressionists, then you'll find Musee D'Orsay boring. If you do like them (as I do, and as most art critics do, perhaps above any other genre) then this is porbably the best collection in the world... More
