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.

Was excited to visit but so disappointed by the building/layout that it made the visit frustrating more than enjoyable. If you don't mind being herded like sheep it's great. If you're interested in visiting certain collections and getting in and getting out then it's tough...More

Smaller scale Museum, lots to see great open spaces and best of all at least two very nice and well appointed restaurants inside. Stay longer and enjoy a good meal, or a drink.

Amazing museum, just too much to see for one visit! Would highly recommend blocking out a few hours and going with a priority of things you want to see --- otherwise you may miss things because you run out of time!

For me it is the most beautiful museum I've ever visited. Its organization is very good and the exhibitions it hosts are wonderful. I had the opportunity to admire the painting exhibition Van Gogh. Besides all this, the building is extremely beautiful, both on the...More

Less busy than the Louvre but equally impressive, the Orsay Museum is home to some of the world's best known artists. Come and spend an afternoon with Van Gogh or Monet. Even the building itself, a former train station, is a work of art with...More

Once again, get your tickets on-line in advance to avoid horrendous lines. Although it has some world renowned art work, most of it could be skipped unless your an art critic. Van Gogh, Monet, and Whistler's Mother are all breath taking! Would not be in...More

This is my favorite place in Paris, the collection of art is so impressive. I think everyone knows about the impressionist artwork, but there is so much more. The collection of sculpture work is great as well, the architecture of the building is also incredible....More

Great museum. Much smaller than the Louvre which makes it more manageable to walk its entirety. We loved the Van Gogh exhibit! Go to the top floor and check out the restaurant or outside patio for a quick snack. Lovely views!

If you appreciate impressionist artists, this is the place to visit. I preferred it to the Louvre for a number of reasons...not so overwhelming, crowded but not as bad as the Louvre, etc.

The old railway station has been converted in an amazing museum. The place to see Gauguin, Cézanne, Van Gogh, Renoir, Degas... and many others. Also a beautiful Pompon and a unique model of the Opera Garnier.

The building itself is amazing. Also if you like sculpture you'll be blown away with the sculpture exhibits on the ground floor. The other advantage that Musee D'orsay has over the Louvre is that there is plenty of space to... More

I visited on a Thursday afternoon in December 2016. It's possible that holiday travelers were a major factor in the crowdedness.

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!
