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.

Incredible, especially the paintings of the Impressionists, so many beautiful paintings and sculptures. Admission was 9 Euros, such a bargain. Much easier to navigate than the Louvre, although it is considerably smaller. Excellent museum.

Had an awesome time . Different than Louvre. Many more modern paintings. Found even a Van Gogh self portrait that was not in Van Gogh museum Amsterdam. The gift shop was not so big.

Our choice of number one attraction in Paris. Simply stunning. Go early to avoid queues. The cafes inside are reasonably priced (unlike The Louvre). Great shop. Breathtaking masterpieces.

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
