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.

Amazing Art

Beautiful museum with excellent artwork. Loved it more than the Louve. Building architecture is also beautiful. Well worth the wait in line.

All of my favorite artists and some of my favorite pieces in one place. If you love impressionists and post-impressionists, you will adore this museum. The first Sunday of every month is free for everyone, but the lines are ridiculous on those days. I believe there is a young person discount, too, but only if you buy the ticket at... More

We went to the Louvre several days earlier and although it was a good experience, it was way too large for our group of seven that ranged in age from 5-84. The museum was perfect for us. The wait to get in was short, the price reasonable, it was easy to reach via mass transit and the size was manageable.... More

Always crowded like the Louvre, and once you're there, you'll know why. Every great impressionist is there!

Musee d'Orsay was actually Gare d'Orsay, a Beaux-Arts railway station built between 1898 and 1900. We spent 5 hours at the museum, but they certainly weren't enough to make sure we've covered everything - sadly, we did not have enough time. Mesmerising paintings and artwork by geniuses who changed the world with their art and passion; Vincent Van Gogh, Monet... More

This is one of Paris' best, most well-known and most popular museums and is definitely worth a visit. Less crowded generally than The Louvre, and much smaller of course, it nevertheless houses some the world's greatest art pieces. Start at the top with The Impressionists and work your way downwards! We ran out of time and had to leave before... More

As you might know, this was a train station. Now it's a beautiful museum. I am going there every time I get the chance. Why? Because it's spacious, and even though there are a lot of tourists, I still get to enjoy the art. And they are pretty diverse in their choices of temporary exposition. So that is another plus...
