Van Gogh at the Musėe d'Orsay

Do see this if you get the chance. We went today and loved it (Book in advance, or be prepared for a long wait)

Also, make sure you visit the cafė on the top floor

1. Re: Van Gogh at the Musėe d'Orsay

At what time did you go today? It was a real mess in the morning. I got in line with an advance ticket at 9 a.m. for the 9:30 opening. The doors did not open until 10:45 , because of a strike (transport?) As the cold morning wore on with promises that the museum would open in "awhile," some in line started to shout obscenities; a few banged on the museum windows; and many started to chant. When the doors finally opened, museum staff mistakenly started to let the wrong line enter through the revolving doors. At that point, those at the head of my line removed the barrier and started to push forward and a free-for-all to gain admission ensued. I was essentially shoved into the museum. It was a rather rowdy start to attend an art exhibition!

But I, too, enjoyed the show and highly recommend it. Under normal conditions, an advance ticket is definitely the way to go.

Boy that situation above sounds unpleasant. Enjoying the many wonderful experiences in Paris is getting tough.

You just never know...a few days ago...


In my experience, it's a huge advantage to attend an exhibition the day it opens or as soon as possible, before the word gets out.

Some years ago, the Monet exhibition at the Grand Palais was most enjoyable when it opened. After that, if you could get a ticket, it was mobbed.

Is there an extra fee for the exhibit? Or is it covered if I use the museum pass?
