The most spectacular collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist, and some early 20th c. art anywhere in the world. Try to avoid weekends, when it is very, very crowded. In former train station, beautifully renovated in 1980s. Great views of Paris. Nice cafe with views.

I had been to the national gallery and only when I went there did I realize that Musee d'orsay had other works from Monet and Van Gogh. The art work was fantastic and I'm so glad I got to see them finally! This museum is...More

Beautiful museum....spacious, great layout, and less crowded than the Louvre. If you enjoy Monet, Renoir, Manet, etc....you will be in heaven at the d'Orsay. There are also several quaint cafes in the museum, and wonderful views of the city.

It is worth visiting this museum just for the sake of its immense collection of Impressionism. The building itself is stunning in every aspect.

Been here several times. If you like Impressionist art, best museum in Paris. The building is an work of art in itself. Do not try to see it all on one visit. The best space and art is on the top floor so pace yourself....More

Amazing museum! Not too crowded and simply beautiful art! The museum itself is also art! Easy to reach by Metro. The furniture collection was stunning and not necessarily what one might consider art but it definitely was. The impressionist pieces were stunning as well.

The collection is so wide that if you think you're an expert on art you would be surprised to find some new gems to obsess over. The gallery is picture perfect and great for some great portraits for tourists.

Perfect way to spend the day. Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir all under one roof. Both cafes are excellent for lunch or drinks.

My favorite museum in Paris. The building is a stunning setting for the art. Lots of natural light, and a mix of sculpture and paintings.

I find the size of Musee d'Orsay perfect to enjoy the exhibitions. Curated to perfection and with a fantastic selection to enjoy, I love visiting. We arrive at opening time or later in the afternoon to avoid the peak time with the crowds. Lunch before...More

we visited mid morning. separate line for museum pass holders - maybe 5 minutes. Other line on other side of entrance was about 15 minutes - so not a major difference. But things can change hourly of course.

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
