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.

The Musee d Orsay is a must if you come to Paris. Obviously most people gravitate to the Louvre, but the Louvre is huge and can literally take 3 days to go through. The Musee d Orsay would probably take 3 hours, at most. You'll...More

A great museum to see the works of the great Impressionists. Van Gogh, Monet etc. The art works are nicely laid out. The building that houses this museum is beautiful too!

This remains my favorite museum in Paris, even above the Louvre, only because I am such a big fan of the impressionists. It's a great collection, and the building is truly unique as the train station used for the 1900 world's fair.
