D'Orsay -- which day/time might be better

We would like to spend a few hours at the Musee D'Orsay. We have Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

Are there days (or times) when the Museum is likely to be less crowded?

Many thanks

1. Re: D'Orsay -- which day/time might be better

Assuming there are no upcoming strikes and the museum is open, I doubt any day/time will be better than another since the nearly completed renovations. Crowds are usually more due to time of year than day of week.

We've always had great luck with Musee du Louvre, Chateau Versailles, Musee d'Orsay, any larger/more popular venue, by having a late breakfast/early lunch and arriving right around lunch time. (Perhaps everyone following the advice to arrive at opening time has gotten tired or hungry.)

Since Musee d'Orsay is open later on Thursday, you might get lucky around dinnertime that day.
