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.

This was a superior experience for me compared to the Louvre. Orangerie also was good, but this houses more art and is in an old train depot so the architecture itself is also a joy to behold. The Impressionists are well represented here and this...More

If you don't like Impressionists, then you'll find Musee D'Orsay boring. If you do like them (as I do, and as most art critics do, perhaps above any other genre) then this is porbably the best collection in the world... More

You need to go see Manet's Olympia and Luncheon on the grass. There's a lot more famous works there by Degas, Van Gogh, Renoir, etc. Go!
