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.

The place itself would be a blast even empty! Apart from all the paintings and sculptures there is a big collection of art nouveau furniture, in the back on the left on several floors.

Believe it or not. This use to be a train station, now a museum. They did an unbelievable job with this building alone, Paris is full of great museums. You need to see them all.

Very "easy" museum to do with little one's. Pre-enroll the kids or family for a tour and workshop. The experience will be more memorable.

This is a must see museum in Paris. Be aware that the queues are very long to get in, but you can reduce the wait by getting tickets online. High security and bag checks going in. This place houses an amazing collection of Impressionist paintings as well as many other art works. The building itself, which used to be a... More

I loved this art gallery. It has the most wonderful collection with breath taking art around every corner. It is skilfully and thoughtfully designed and organised. In my opinion it is the best art gallery that I have visited. I spent 5 hours there and could have spent more if I had more time.

My dream has always been to see Impressionist paintings in person, and that dream became a reality today. I could have spent hours and hours in that wing alone. Easy access from the metro, and if you go early enough, it's not too crowded. Several dining options are available in this beautifully refurbished train station. It is a must-see!

This museum is much smaller than the Louvre, which makes it so much easier to take in. The building itself is worth the price of admission. Very easy to to navigate through the displays. Probably my favorite museum in Paris.

This is really a great museum, a bit confusing at first but once you figure out the floor plan it is great. The restaurant is a bit disappointing food wise, but the decor is well worth it, even just to stick your head in for a look. Not sure where they got the ugly chairs but they don't fit.
