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.

If you do nothing else, pay the fee and go in to see 2 rooms of walks full of Monet Waterlilies. Absolutely beautiful and a once in a lifetime chance to see these masterpieces.

Musee D'Orsay never disappoints and as a lover of impressionism it was wonderful to see the french classics and Kandinsky, as well.

In the victorian style and love of natural history they museum houses a seemingly endless number of specimens of creature. So varied where the exhibits many artists learning to draw the structure of animals where sat with pencil and paper much as I imagine they would have done 100 years ago.

Having being to the Lourve on a previous visit and with a compressed time frame, we decided to do Musee d'Orsay instead and we were not disappointed.

Went for a particular exhibition but spent more time revisiting the Art Deco rooms (as we do every time we come to Paris). Some of the most amazingly curated Art Deco collections I have ever seen.
