Overview

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.

Musee d’orsay has a wonderful collection of art work . But I would only recommend this museum if you have a lot of time in Paris .

I would recommend going to the Musee d'Orsay early in the morning to avoid the queues, if not the skip-the-line tickets may be of great use to you. Lots of paintings by great artists.

Probably the most important museum in the world if you want to understand the birth of modern art. It is so much more manageable than the huge Louvre, this museum not only houses beautiful collection but is also a beautiful work of art in itself....More

Very manageable. The Louvre is the biggie, but had to take it all in. A bit smaller, and a very interesting building to wander through. Worth a visit.

A fabulous old train station converted to one of the world's great art museums. This is a must-see, particularly for their Impressionists and Post-Impressionists. You could easily spend several very comfortable hours here. Get the audio guide and find your way around. As a plus,...More

Got there early and missed the crowds. Some fantastic art in there - so many Van Goghs and altogether in one place. Impressionist section also excellent.

I love visiting the Musée d’Orsay! I enjoy lots of art, but am far from being knowledgeable and this is not a problem at the Orsay. So many of the tableaux are such famous and beautiful pieces that they can be easily identified and even...More

For a great taste of the art of Paris, I would totally recommend this museum. The impressionists reign king at d’Orsay, and the art is breathtaking.

If you are going to several museums/ attractions then the 4 day museum pass is good and saves waiting in the ticket queue, although you still need to go through a security bag check. This does not tie you to a specific day... More
