Loved this museum, but the school tour groups made it difficult to see some of the more important works. The kids were unaware, as kids are, and stood directly in front of the paintings having conversations, not even looking at the paintings. I kept having to pass up paintings and try to double back to see some of the "hits." Wish I had called ahead to find out when the best time to avoid that would have been. Other advice would be to start on the top floor and work your way down. Most of the favorites are on the top floor. If you are also planning a trip to the Garnier Opera house, don't miss the scale model and exhibits about it on the first floor. I was able to find our exact seats within the model!
Make sure you wind your way into the little side galleries on the lower floors. They a not very noticeable and e map doesn't detail what paintings are there. And there are some greats! Wish the audio guide had covered more of the works, but it was good.
