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 d'Orsay was a huge architectural wonder and a surprise. My first visit, and if ever a return to Paris, it would be a must see. The enormous amount of art and sculpture, impossible to see in a day.

We visited on Thursday evening when Musee D'Orsay is open late. The exhibits are nicely done and they have audio tours should you wish to do that. There are a few cafe type restaurants, all of which had patrons well into the evening. There is an elevator, although it is a bit hard to find, and there is seating scattered... More

A very special place best seen with a terrific guide like Rosemary Flannery. Plan on spending at least a half a day there.

Visited this museum in May 2010 and was blown away by the building and its contents. I regretted that I had so little time to view it and share it with so many people. Came back in January 2016 when there were less crowds, rented an apartment in the neighborhood and bought a 14 day pass for unlimited visits and... More

The Musee d'Orsay is not to be missed! The building itself is a work of art, let alone all of the historic works of art that it contains. Security is tight these days - you will be asked to check any bag larger than a small purse and the line for the coat/bag check can get long. Be sure to... More

what a wonderful experience. Do book online to avoid queues. Collect tickets at Tabac next door. The restaurant is a real experience and reasonably priced. Check out the decor! Also the cafe. Not to be missed. The Impressionist paintings are amazing.
