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.

Get inspired at this beautiful museum . There are many beautiful paintings by monet or van gough and many more impressionists artist. The kids tend to get bored though.

D'orsay is a must visit activity eventhough you're not an art addicted. The museum exhibits most of the famous arts from the 19th & 20th centuries. Don't miss the impressionism floor.

If the Louvre is too overwhelming, you’ll love the Orsay. A beautiful museum and much less crowded than the Louvre.

I love the Orsay because it is like walking through the history of art during the most exciting period of change since the Renaissance - that is to say from about 1850 to 1910. The advent of the railways, of pre-prepared paint in tubes and...More

We pre-purchased tickets and given the cold weather and the line for tickets it was well worth the pre-purchase. The line at 9:00 for a 9:30 opening was still quite large. The security is quite tight and there is a locker room for back packs...More

This museum is a great value. I could spend hours inside, and it was very affordable. Lines were also much shorter than many other museums.

Always prepurchase tickets. Do it online. It will save you from lining up. When you get there you'll likely see a line. Always go to the front--there should be a ticket holder entrance and you'll be able to saunter... More
