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 paintings, sculpture and space make this museum a visual delight. Purchasing the museum pass at the TI at the airport meant that we bypassed the line which was VERY long at 9 am, the museum opening time. We went directly to the impressionist wing and had the place to ourselves for a small bit of time. We then traveled... More

By far the best museum I have ever visited, this is the sister museum of the Louvre and holds the later part of the collection. In my view, this is the best of the collection, with lots of Van Gogh, Picasso, Matisse, Renoir, etc. Also a truly wonderful sculpture collection. One negative is that they no longer allow photography.

This museum definitely lives up to the hype. The best pieces are worth it and at midday, it was easy to move around the facility. I was able to get some great photos of the best pieces. The museum itself is also beautiful in layout with some great picture opportunities from the higher levels.

Gorgeous museum filled with expertly curated collections, the Impressionism is my favourite but there is so much more to see. At the top level there is a lovely cafe and a balcony looking over Paris towards Sacre Coeur, a great place to take photos.

When you visit this place you could just confirm what I read in a T-Shirt in the museum's shop "Every day I discover more beautiful things in life!" Great collection, amazing masterpieces, specially sculptures! You have not visited Paris if you don't visit Musée d'Orsay! Take a time to have a coffee in its coffee house!

I was very excited to go here, however the line is very long (there is a way to buy a pass with other museums and I think this is a good thing to do). But the layout is kind of odd, and you find yourself trying to figure out why things are where they are. Still, you are in Paris,... More

Visit was my teenage daughter's choice. Myself and son were not so keen but we passed the time looking at the top class collection of painting and sculpture on the lower levels. Upstairs included a special exhibition on Italian Art and Design - recommended. We enjoyed the top floor cafe and terrace and then popped in to the Impressionist galleries.... More

Wonderful museum with replica of Statue of Liberty.. (We met an American in Paris, looking for it!) On the square in front of the museum, there is a small unit selling newspapers and magazines. Somewhat hidden behind a wall. They also sell museum tickets, which you can use to enter the "reservee" entrance of the museum(on the right). So there... More

Much less crowded than the Louvre, easy to navigate. Disappointed that VanGogh's "Starry Night" wasn't there but still an awesome experience.
