I have not been on all the museums in the world, of course... But Musée d'Orsay is a lovely one. And do not forget to eat in of the restaurants. This time we eat up in the café of the 5th floor. Very good!

Two sit down, full service restaurants plus one small sandwich cafe is useless. Waited in line over an hour for a baguette at 2pm. You can't leave and re-enter either. Plus, you'd wait another hour to return of you could... The Louvre was far better...More

We were able to see the Picasso exhibit and it was well worth the wait! Other highlights include the opera house exhibit and the architecture exhibit.

Always book your tickets in advance. The lines can take ages if you haven't pre purchased tickets. Allow a few hours to see it all.

The glory of this wonderful museum is in part the building itself, formerly a very dirty railroad station. Order tickets on line - or suffer the long wait. The artwork is amazing. I would take this over the Louvre any time if you only have...More

My favorite museum in Paris. Not as overwhelming as the Louvre, but chock full of great works. Photographs just cannot convey the brushwork of Van Gogh. I could look for hours at Starry Night Over the Rhône.

This museum houses a Monet exhibit including the Waterlillies painting- It is located in a very cool former train terminal

There are so many wonderful things to see including many iconic artworks, I cannot think that anyone could come away disappointed. You would need days to view all the museum has to offer, possibly weeks!!
