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...more

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.
Musee de Orsay is always a good idea! If you get your tickets from the skip the line website (available from Trip Advisor, I believe) a couple of days before visiting, getting into the museum is much easier and faster. There are several restaurants in...More
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
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
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and
politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.

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 got out of control.

We were just there and f you are in Paris on the first Sunday of the month you get in free. Still have a line but it moves and of course the security checkpoint area. The 5th floor has many of the impressionists artwork. If you are looking for a specific painting do check the website.

When we were there last week, an entire floor or two was closed. I believe there is always a section closed in order to reboot the exhibits. Believe me, there is plenty to see in this museum, including the lovelies in the gift shops! p.s. You may want to go online and check the website to see information about current exhibits.
