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.

A must see museum

Musee d'Orsay is a fantastic museum. The number and quality of works are amazing. If you have any time after the Louvre, you should visit here!

I love this museum. It's very manageable for a visit lasting only a few hours, which is great when you are on a tight timeline. I loved the happy hour at the museum restaurant and the views through the large station clock on the upper level!

We loved visiting this museum. There are some great art works and the building itself is beautiful. It's large but manageable.

I came here on a Sunday afternoon at the end of October and overall, although the interior was architecturally nice, the museum's content is not stunning for the average tourist. Just to note, the queues for this museum can be quite long and you can't take a bag in the museum itself you have to leave it in the cloakroom.... More

The are so many Monets, Manets, Degas, Cezannes, Renoirs, Sisleys and Gaugins (not to mention many more) that it is simply overwhelming. The building itself is magnificent. Present your Eurostar ticket (if that's how you got to Paris) and get 2 for 1 entry fee.

This train-station-converted-to-museum is both its own piece of architecture art, and contains heaps of treasures in each of its rooms. It should take about 3 hours to see everything, but if that is impossible, at least follow the halls (diamond-studded with Rodins) to the Impressionist galleries on the 4th (I think) floor. Absolutely incredible.

We went on Sunday afternoon and literally had no line to wait. The museum is clean and appears well run. The art is well displayed and the collections are outstanding. We were impressed. We had a delightful lunch in the cafe on the third floor with very attentive service.

One of the Main Paris museums with a huge diversity of sculptures and paitings. Prefering the paitings we could observe a good number of paitings for different styles like the realism, the impressionism and the symbolism. I reccomend to spend at least 2.5/3 hours in this museum.

Truly phenomenal collections. Must be tough to live in the shadow of Europe's other pinnacles of artwork. If I never go to another museum in my life, I know I've lived a more colorful, rich life via this singular visit. Classical, impressionists, modern. Paintings, sculpture. All day. While standing in line- go online on your phone and find out how... More
