About
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.

Beautifully Restored Train Station for Impressionists Display
Oct. 2021
Wonderfully enjoyable museum of painting from 1848 to 1910 marvelously staged in glorious train station that is worth the visit just to see how such a beautiful building can be repurposed.

beautiful old building with some famous art
Aug. 2021
After traveling via the red eye to Paris, we decided to push through the jetlag and use the afternoon to sightsee. The museum is open late so we decided to go there. There are works from several famous painters including Manet, Monet, Cezanne, etc. Housed in a beautiful old building along the Seine, there is plenty to see here..... perhaps too much. Wander through the gallerys that interest you and move along. There is likely too much here to see everything. Recommended

Impressionist Paintings
Oct. 2021
We went early on the first Sunday of October. It was free admission. By the time we left, it was standing room only. We did not get to see everything but spent most of our time on the top floor where they house the impressionist paintings. I highly recommend the audio tour.

This is one not to miss
Oct. 2021
All the wonderful impressionists art work all in one place is amazing. When we were there it was not extremely crowded and made it easy to be up-close with these stunning pieces.

Probably Our Favorite Paris Museum
Sep. 2021
Not as good a selection of art as on our last visit, we missed some of the things we liked, but it's still worth a tour, if you like the impressionists and some truly lovely sculpture. The building itself is gorgeous, both inside and out. Hard to imagine it as a train station now. Easily accessible from almost anywhere in Paris, it's not bad to do it as a walk.

Beautiful building, incredible collection
Oct. 2021
Don't miss it if you like impressionism. Recommend not going on Tuesday if you can help; it was busy. Many important works as well as works that you may not know.

Merveilleuse!
Oct. 2021
With Van Gogh paintings, this one were for sure my fav one in Paris. It worth the ticket price, and it is free for under 26 ones. I think it is a more complete experience once compared with musée de lÓrangerie :)

Great Impressionists Represented

This is a beautiful art museum that is easy to get around and see everything in a relatively short time. It is very worth the price of admission.
