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.

Repeat visitor to this museum never fails there is something of interest for most anybody. If you can't comprehend seeing the vastness of the Louvre (as wonderful as it is!) and you don't want to be overwhelmed, this is always a good choice.

This is a great museum to do in an afternoon. It is beautifully laid out and is full of wonderful art of different mediums. I would recommend getting the audio hand held device. It does enrich the experience. It contains many works from well known artists. Nothing like standing in front of a painting you’ve seen many times before but... More

We enjoyed everything about the building and exhibits. Even the cafe is good and reasonably priced. I would go back here before going to the Louvre again.

We and our thirteen year old grandson were taken to the museum by our amazing guide, Bertrand D''Aleman of My Private Paris to see the highlights of the Musee D'Orsay. In such a clever way he taught our grandson Impressionism, so much so that he now can identify the major artists and the style. For example, Bertrand had him move... More

This old train station holds some truely beautiful art. It's almost as crowded as the Louvre but still worth the effort. Pre purchase tickets on line to avoid the line up out front. The layout is simple so you won't be getting lost here.

I have been coming here since it was housed in Jeux de paume back in the 80's and I keep finding new paintings that I love and new things in the old paintings.

This is an amazing gallery. Not too big to overwhelm but large enough. Diverse collection. Start up on the 5th floor with the Impressionist and Post Impressionist paintings. As energy allows, move down and peruse the other works. There is a good scultpure and furniture collection as well. There are places for food or drinks - a fancy and less... More
