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.

This was our second time visiting Musee d'Orsay and enjoyed it just as much as the first time. A repurposed train station makes for an amazing setting for priceless works of art. From paintings to sculptures they have it all. If you like museums the museum pass is a good deal for visiting multiple museums. Highly recommend a visit.

I came especially for Monet and Manet, finally getting to see them in reality. The museum building is a great place to visit on it's own and the collection has enough to offer. It was crowded on a Sunday in january, I recommend to buy tickets online and get there early.

We went to the Louvre to say "we've been to the Louvre" but loved the Musee d'Orsay. Amazing transformation of a train station, loved the clock window, but most of all the art. Museum staff we're helpful too.

Really great concept of transforming an old train station into a museum. A good alternative to sightseeing if the weather gets too cold or it starts raining. Personally I did not like the layout of the museum. It would be more enjoyable if a good map was given and suggested directions were put in place. U25 EU members can get... More

Really interesting building with wonderful impressionist paintings and excellent food. Always busy but still able to enjoy the experience without noticing other people too much. Highly recommended.

Many famous pieces. The building is beautiful too. More manageable than the louvre and less crowded.

Highly recommended. Beautiful sculptures and many pieces from European masters. The building itself is worth the visit. Also, very good value. Worth buying a joint ticket with the L'Orangerie or Rodin museum.

Taking place where the Louvre leaves off, time era art wise. Yes, once you have viewed the Louvre head over to the d'Orsay. If in Paris for a few days be sure to use the Paris Museum Pass. Saves time by avoiding a line.

The Musee d'Orsay has the best collection of Impressionist art. They have several Monets. Renoirs, Degas, all the way up to van Gogh. The building itself is worth the visit. It is the old train station.
