What can one say? Rating a museum like this on tripadvisor is not worthy of a singular museum like this. But here you go, it's fab.

This was my favorite museum in Paris I really like the layout of the museum and clean and defined look of it. There are two great restaurants/ cafes inside, one behind a huge glass clock and one with a more formal look. The exhibits here are awesome and really cover a good variety of artists and styles. I recommend buying... More

It has the best collection of the kind of paintings we like best, but also a fantastic building and a nice, albeit expensive, restaurant upstairs. Great views of Paris from the balcony of the less formal cafe near the top floor.

What a Museum. Reasonably compact yet boasts of a fantastic collection of works. I love the Manet, Monet, Renoir, Sisley, Cezanne collections. One could spends days soaking up the presence of these original masterpieces which you see only in art books and magazines. Definitely worth a leisurely visit. The food at the 5th floor restaurant, behind the huge clock is... More
