Owner description: 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.

So worth the money to have a guide and know what things are. We only had an hour and a half tour and saw just half the museum. You could spend a week here.

This museum is located in a former railroad station. The transition from train station to museum is fantastic. It is light and airy. There is no feeling of being closed in. We went on a very busy day (the first Sunday of the month when admission is free) and it was still spacious inside. It is the best collection of impressionist painting in Paris. Very enjoyable.

I absolutely loved this museum, it was easy to go through in a day, and they had a fabulous Degas collection during the time I visited that was truly beautiful.

This is one of the museums on your list that you must visit in Paris. It's best if you start from the top as this is where you will find all the Impressionists and more. It is also where you will find current exhibitions, which at the moment is dedicated to Degas.
From the top, you can then walk down to the lower floors, which are essentially the first and ground floor, with post-impressionist paintings. On the first floor you will find a cafeteria with mainly sandwiches and pastries. At the top floor, there is a restaurant, Campana, where there is a waiter/waitress service. The menu is rather sparse but the food is tasty and is served very quickly.
