Allow at least 4 hours and wear good walking shoes. If you are a history buff, this is a must. This is easy to get to even on the hop on hop off bus but I suggest taking a cab. The museum is extremely large,...More

So many masterpieces to take in. We were there on a day when there was a special Picasso special exhibit. And there's a section on Van Gogh with one of the drafts of Starry Night (not the famous one). Definitely worth the time!

Musee d'Orsay is a gorgeous building in itself and houses multiple collections. My advice is to review the website and choose what to see before you go. We were also fortunate to attend a concert in the lovely auditorium.

If Paris ever recovers from its current woes, and one wants to travel there, this is a must on the visitors' hit parades. Wonderful use of space, unique design, arts work is heavenly. What Paris museum is truly meant to be.

This museum is just stunning. The building invites you to wander and linger to encounter 100s of masterpieces of the late 19th and early 20th century. The current exhibition on Renoir (father and son) is well worth an hour. We visited the cafe for refreshments...More

Really great to see the original impressionist paintings. Had to wait in the line for about 45 minutes to gain admission due to crowds.

A must visit in Paris. There was a long line for security and then for tickets. There is a lovely restaurant in the second level that I definitely recommend.

This museum was all I had hoped for. I love art museums and this was probably my favorite one in Paris. It is within an old train station which makes the structure as beautiful as the paintings. The layout is a little wonky but not...More

Backpacks were not allowed to be carried in the museum. They required all backpacks to be checked and stowed in the museum coat check. Security was tight as we were there on December 1st, which was the day the protests/riots... More
