You will love the art and hate the crowded galleries. The lighting has been upgraded and highlights the Impressionist Art on the 5th floor.

After visiting this museum for the first time, I understand what all the hype is about. This museum is located in a beautiful building, which would have been a pleasure to be in even if there was no art. The art is displayed very well. Despite the crowds it is easy to see everything. Pictures are not allowed near the... More

The building itself is a work of art, the Impressionist paintings are out of this world and the roof top terrace restaurant offers amazing views over Paris and reasonably priced food. Probably the best museum I have ever visited. The collection of Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, Degas and Van Gogh paintings all housed in one place is a feast for any... More

I love the Architecture, I love the statues, the paintings, the light and the Atmosphere. In fact I can't find anything not to like about Musee d'Orsay except maybe the queues in summer or for a special exhibition. Set on the banks of the Seine, this wonderful old museum inside what was to be a railway station but the platforms... More

The building is stunning and the artwork is beautifully displayed. This museum is much less overwhelming than the Louvre.

I've been to many art museums around the world and this is easily one of my favourite museums. If you appreciate Impressionist art, this is THE place for you. You will see art by a lot of the majors. It's a very romantic, beautiful collection. The building itself is stunning - be sure to visit the rooms on the top... More

My first trip to Paris a lot of these works were still in the Loivre, I actually did not know about this museum when I made my second trip, I had to ask in the Louvre where the Monet's had been moved to. This museum is in a quaint part of the city in a building with beautiful architecture. The... More

Amazing museum. Remarkable works of art. A must see. Get your tickets a head of time, it can get very crowded. Plan at least ninety minutes to two hours.

This is a beautiful museum. The work it contains are lovely and more modern than the Louvre. It is an experience in and of itself. Step out on the balcony...breathtaking vies of Paris! Try the cafe for a little break too!

If you have only one opportunity to visit Paris during your lifetime, go to the Musee d'Orsay first. It is the most incredible collection of art in the world.
