The works of art - mainly French paintings and sculpture (some furniture too) - primarily from the 19th and early 20th century are housed in an erstwhile railway station - Gare d'Orsay - then leading weary commuters to Orleans and later to other parts of France. Suffice it to say that the building itself is a delight to look at.... More

Start by buying your ticket ahead, at FNAC or any other ticketing agency. This will save you some valuable time. After visiting the ongoing exhibition, whether it is Van Gogh or any other, you have to say hello to the fifth floor where the Impressionists are waiting for you. I must have seen them at least 30 times, from the... More

Fantastic range of art. The many Rodin sculptures and a Van Gogh special exhibition were especially brilliant. If you love Impressionist art you gotta love this place!

This was my second time in Paris and I wanted to avoid the long lines and craziness of the Louve. We spent a few hours here and were thoroughly impressed with the collection; Renoir, Degas, Pissaro, Monet; it was great to see some of their most important pieces. We were able to take our time and see everything and avoided... More

No waiting for hours to get in! The queue moves quickly even at 2p.m. This is a must see attraction. The various collections are fantastic. you can see familiar works of art in as just as fabulous a building as the mighty Louvre. Nice restaurant for a coffee or snack and fairly reasonably priced. Enjoy!

When visiting Paris you should definitely visit The musée d'Orsay located on the left bank of the Seine. The museum is worldly known for its collection of impressionist art. The peculiarity of the museum is obviously the architecture, originally meant to be a train station. The structure is beautiful it's worth the queue you have to do before getting in.... More

Went to see Van Gogh exhibition here and really enjoyed it. There were lots of Van Gogh related items on sale at the little shop area where the exhibition ended. Queues move fast, but it's best to reserve a lot of time here as there is so much to see. It cost 11 euros for adults, children are free. They... More

Love this museum. Easy to see most of it in a couple of hours. Headsets really enhance your visit. The Louvre is incredible but so huge. Here you will see amazing familiar classic works of art and the building is just as fabulous.
