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 wonderful collection of art is housed in an amazing building. The restoration of the old railway station is beautiful. So much easier to view the art here (vs Louvre) as no where near the crowds of people. Queue to purchase tickets was short too.

Filled with impressionist art, an impressive collection of Art Nouveau art, furniture, and sculpture, and some of the best of Monet's paintings, the Musee d'Orsay is a must-see for a visit to Paris. It's even better than the Louvre! You can see the entire collection here in a few hours, and I've never been disappointed. You feel like you have... More

This is probably the most impressive museum in Paris. I never tire of going there. Start on the 5th floor and work your way down. This is the floor of the Impressionists. The temporary exhibits are also usually fantastic. Buy your ticket in advance so as to avoid the long lines. With a prepaid ticket you enter to the side... More

I am a fan of impressionist art, so I am probably biased... but I enjoyed the Orsey much more than the Louvre. Well curated and less exhausting! Full of paintings I've seen so many times in postcards, posters, books and TV. I was blown away by Van gogh collection they had, and realised how different his works are in real... More

That doesn't mean if you have great weather you should not go. On the contrary. Its 2 hours to see some of the most magnificent and priceless art you will ever be this close to. Monet, Manet, Renoir, Van Gogh, the list is endless. On the left bank across from the Louvre. A must see for art fans and anyone... More

The building itself is already well worth a visit. Add in the beautiful impressionist art collection and it is a truly magical place. Don't miss the restaurant behind the old station clock, with a very special view over the city. We would have loved to stay much longer!

The museum has some great permanent collections, and we enjoyed our self-guided tour. The building itself is not quite as grand or opulent as the Louvre, but it's nice nonetheless. One thing to note is that the coat/bag check is outside of the entrance. So if you check your bags, you can't access them again until you're ready to leave... More

We have a limited time in Paris and wanted to make the most out of our visit. Of the many museums in Paris, we chose the Musee dOrsay, and we were not disappointed. The museum has an amazing collection of paintings, sculptures, photography, etc. It is one of the largest art museums in Europe, housed in what once was a... More
