Owner description: 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.

The Orsay is easy to navigate, specific art pieces are easy to find, it's in a beautiful old train station and you can see everything you want in a reasonable length of time. There are some lovely Renaissance era paintings on display and I love the sculpture "garden" on the main level. This is a wonderful museum to spend a few hours.

spectacular art gallery across the river from the Louvre. Many familiar exhibits in an interesting building. Not to be missed

Would recommend this as a starting point for a trip to Paris, it’s close to everything in Paris and a metro station right outside. It’s beautiful, interesting, and under 18s go free. Beautiful photogenic spots inside and outside. Loved it. Gift shops are lovely too

A little bit of everything, small enough to be seen entirely in less than a day. Specially good for its sculptures collection.
