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.

My favorite artists in the world at the D'Orsay. The building itself is striking and prime for some lovely photos. Very nicely laid out and good for even a couple of hours to see the bulk of the collection.

After the Louvre this is a must visit. The collection is more contemporary including impressionists. Very nice cafe on upper level in the clock room. Dramatic setting- good food and service.

Not as big as the Louvre, but still just as lovely. It had a very nice atmosphere. A big collection of classic pieces as well as those maybe lesser known. A very enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. The building is just as impressive as the art it holds.
