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 few years ago we couldn't be bothered waiting hours to get in here so we didn't bother going. This time we bought the tickets in advance, we got there about 11 o'clock and didn't have to wait at all, nor did the people paying...More

It's always a pleasure to be here. Small museum (compared to e.g. Louvre). Really suggested, at least to be able to appreciate the most important paintings from the most important painters. Remember to make use of the free wardrobe at the entrance. Just in case...More

Tremendous collection of art, a must see if you enjoy museums. The building itself is beautiful and you can easily spend countless hours here exploring. It’s walkable distance to louvre and other sights.

If you like art and architecture, then this the place is for you! It combines both of these. As opposed to the Louvre (another beautiful museum), the Musée D’Orsay is a much more manageable art gallery. But it’s much more than that, it’s an experience,...More

Really enjoyed a further visit to Musee d'Orsay. Impressionist and pre-Impressionist paintings wonderful but sculpture exhibits also most interesting.

Don’t miss it! A trip to Paris without this museum isn’t complete. Astonishing artworks. Long queues, so go early morning or lunchtime.
