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.

Beautiful museum with a lot to see!
We went there mid day..around lunch time and had no line at all! As I was under 26 I could go for free. It took us about 5-10min to get in!
Really beautiful building...it's quite spacious..plenty of places to sit even next to the sculptures!
I found the map a bit confusing but just follow the signs and you should be ok.
Don't miss out on impressionism on the 5th floor!
Loved the special exhibit of Latvian-Lithuanian-Estonian art as I myself am from Latvia. Beautiful collection!
Recommend!

I enjoy visiting Orsay Museum more than even Louvre. Have been here two times, will definitely come again in my future trips. My recommendation is to start the museum at the top floor where you can see the beautiful Monet collection and the other impressionists. There is a nice restaurant with a great interior on the first floor of the museum. Recommended.

As a lover of French impressionist paintings, this museum is a must when visiting Paris. It is truly an amazing place for any art lover. In addition, the museum restaurants are outstanding in their own right. Fantastic place to spend a day in Paris.

The Musee d'Orsay, formerly a train station, is now one of the best museums in Western Europe. The museum has a hefty with sculptures and especially impressionist paintings. This museums has perhaps one of the most impressive collections of paintings by artist such as Van Gogh, Cezanne, Monet, Degas and many others.

For shear volume of history the Louvre beats them all but if you like impressionist art even a little you won’t be disappointed. The finest collection in the world both in depth and breadth of impressionist art in my opinion. Also organized in a way that flows. The deco collection is quite nice as well.
