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 architecture and the collections were fabulous. The day just flew by and they were announcing the closure long before we were ready to go. Definitely a reason to go back!

The building is an old railroad station filled with wonderful artwork and statues. You could spend an entire day or just a few hours. Lovely

I really liked it here. It isn't massive but I have never seen such incredible original paintings such as Monet, Van Gogh, Manet, etc all in one place. It is an art lovers paradise

The museum architecture is beautiful, since it is located in a former train station. The crowd is much smaller than at the Louvre and the art collection is beautiful. The museum is an impressionist wonderland! A must-see in Paris.

This is the place to go if you want to see Impressionist paintings. We bought our Museum Pass at the ticket window for 42 Euros and it was good for many of the other places we wanted to see. Got there a little before opening time and although the line looked long it moved quickly. This is not as overwhelming... More

Definitely one of the better museums I've been to. Make sure you give it a good 2-3 hours to explore it properly. I ate at the cafe on the second floor and thought the food was disappointing for the price, so I'd give it a miss. The museum seems to only have 2 bathrooms - be prepared to queue.

We didn't have enough time to do it justice, but very nice collection, large space. Pretty busy place, but it so spacious I didn't feel too crowded for the most part.

Get there early to help avoid the lines. Paris pass gets you into the C entrance which helped a bit. Not overwhelming like the Louvre
