Featuring art dating 1848 till 1914, this museum features many famous painters like Van Gogh. However it does have a strict no photography rule which is a pity because in contrast to the Louvre which is pretty much a free for all.

I first visited d'Orsay 14 years ago, and didn't have time to finish viewing all the exhibitions. And I dreamt about returning to this place since. Finally I got to visited it again during this trip. It was my first stop in Paris. It was as good as I remembered. . And again I didn't get to finish all the... More

This is still my favorite museum in Paris but all the up and down steps are starting to get to me. Visitors with time should be sure to see the wonderful collection of Art Nouveau furniture too.

We were lucky enough to visit the museum when a special exhibit of rare impressionist pieces were being displayed. Many favourites including Camille Pissarro, Van Gogh, Monet, Renoir, to name a few. Great layout after renovations, only complaint would be clearer signage needed for less able guests to know how to access upper floors.

What a charming museum. Much more manageable than the Louvre. Great selection of impressionist paintings.

The collection is staggering. Wikipedia can tell you what's there, but the experience of seeing these masterpieces row after row, room after room, is awe inspiring. Far be it from me to praise the art itself. The museum, a former train station, is just as impressive architecturally. Don't miss the Musee d'Orsay. I was in Paris 5 years ago, with... More

Managed to visit Musee d'Orsay during our recent visit to Paris and we were very pleased that we did. It is a wonderful museum and there are so many rooms of the main corridors that we had to be careful not to miss anything. It would probably have been better if we had obtained the audio guide when we first... More

Don't use your camera. Photos are not allowed, witch is sucks. it make no sense, you can use your camera at the louver but not in O'rsay. A black security dude speaks 0 English walked at me and said, put your camera in your bag, so I did and I said sorry, but he was soo unhappy person. :/

Our favorite museum in Paris... Great works of art in an easy-to-access environment. Lines were short (on a Saturday) ... Coffee in the cafe is something special

Love the impressionism exhibit and it is very easy to navigate. Have lunch in the cafe. The first Sunday of the month is free.
