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.

Bought online tickets (hardly any line at 1100am, so really no need to do so). Enjoyed the museum with informative panels in French and English. Took us about 3 hours to cover most exhibitions.

It is one of the museums that you MUST NOT miss. The day we arrived there was some special event with music and everything was such fun.

So many well know artists from the pre / post impressionists as well. Getting through the collection is completely manageable and not overwhelming. Make sure to get up to the rooftop for a view across the Seine.

We loved this place, smaller than the Louvre and much easier to finish off. The art is amazing and we enjoyed it very much. A Must see

Definitely worth a stop while in Paris. The museum is in an old train station and is beautiful. There are so many wonderful paintings and sculptures here. We spend a little over 2 hours here.

You can't go wrong in this museum. Wall after wall of gorgeous masterpieces. The day we had intended to go, we arrived at the museum to signs that it was closed for a labor dispute. OK, we did other sights and came back another day....More

We went on a Thursday when it's open until 9:45 pm. If you are pressed for time, as we were, pick a few exhibits in the main floor and head to the back. When you reach the cutaway of the Opera, there is an escalator...More

In my view this is the best designed museum in the world. The Louvre of course is better known but the Musee D'Orsay has a great collection of sculpture and impressionist paintings and is a must see. The building itself is a masterpiece , with...More

we visited mid morning. separate line for museum pass holders - maybe 5 minutes. Other line on other side of entrance was about 15 minutes - so not a major difference. But things can change hourly of course.

If you don't like Impressionists, then you'll find Musee D'Orsay boring. If you do like them (as I do, and as most art critics do, perhaps above any other genre) then this is porbably the best collection in the world... More

I visited on a Thursday afternoon in December 2016. It's possible that holiday travelers were a major factor in the crowdedness.
