Owner description: 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.

Housed in a former train station, the Musee d'Orsay is a treat! The art work is inspiring, and has a nice collection of Daumier, Honore, Monet, Manet, Cezanne, etc. Not overly large, the museum is not as overwhelming as some of the larger and more crowded art houses. I spent more than 4.5 hours soaking in the masterpieces and truly enjoyed every moment.

The Musee is an impressive building in itself, even without the art.Its best to book the tickets online and print them off before you go, this way you can avoid queuing in the busy season

The Orsay is easy to navigate, specific art pieces are easy to find, it's in a beautiful old train station and you can see everything you want in a reasonable length of time. There are some lovely Renaissance era paintings on display and I love the sculpture "garden" on the main level. This is a wonderful museum to spend a few hours.
