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.

good for a few hours rather than all day in the Louvre with many of the same artists. Also, the views from the 5th floor through the glass sundial are quite amazing .

We got the pass with L'Orangerie and saved a bit of money. I enjoyed L'Orangerie more but this is obviously a must. We spent a couple hours here and it was very lovely.

Wonderful artwork yet so overcrowded that it was not enjoyable. Also, there is nowhere to buy water and the water fountain was not working, so we became dehydrated walking through the museum. Disappointing.

When we initially tried to visit it was closed by a strike, but we came back....and what a museum. Like so many Paris attractions, it was almost overwhelming; most certainly one leaves visually overstimulated. Should we go back to Paris we will visit it again....

Check out the multiple-day pass. If you go first to a less-crowded site and buy there, you can skip the line for the duration of the pass. Last time, we bought at St. Chapelle and were set for the more-crowded sites.
