Renoirs and Van Goghs - what's not to like? A great museum that can be walked through in half a day.

It is no surprise that this museum is excellent- very accessible with tons of wonderful art- though the layout is a little confusing. The Orsay is a must see and I recommend eating at the restaurant. What a beautiful room! The food and service are fine, but that ceiling- breathtaking! Even if you just go in for coffee- try to... More

The Orsay is one of my favorite stops in Paris and I was looking forward to sharing it with my kids- ages 7, 10 & 11. When we arrived, the line snaked around and it looked like an hour or so wait, but in the end, a security man came over and put all the people with kids in a... More

This is a beautiful museum. The only negative is getting up to the fifth floor. They have elevators but not enough of them.

Buy your tickets in advance at your hotel. Building is amazing and the art (especially 3rd floor) is worth the trip to Paris. Don't miss the restaurant.

The impressionist paintings are not to be missed but the building itself is just as interesting. It is a converted railway station with wonderful views over the Seine River. All of the great painters are represented and there are some nice but busy restaurants.
