Musee d'Orsay was our second stop (after Versailles) on the 4 day Paris Museum Pass and it didn't disappoint. I especially enjoyed the impressionists and French artists section. Was kind of disappointed that Whistler's Mother was out on loan to another museum, which surprisingly ended...More

Magnificent architecture with a lot of fine paintings and sculptures, but what was really amazing the Picasso collection, it was a real pleasure to see the trials and the primitive drawings of the artist

If you are a fan of the ‘impressionists,’ this is the place for you. The building, a renovated train station, itself a treasure, holds some of the most majestic art in the world. Hand held tour phones are in English as well as other languages.

It is a fantastic museum. Its collections are unique. You should try the coffee shop on the 5th floor. Note that it is usually very crowded, so buy your tickets beforehand. The Picasso exhibition is too crowded and hence disappointing. The museum should manage crowds...More

...this is the one. An incredible building housing an incredible collection of impressionists and Art Nouveau pieces. Sure, the Louvre has Mona Lisa (and another mostly ignored DaVinci just outside Mona's insanely crowded room) and is also a must-see, but the Orsay is just over...More
