Louvre is by far the most famous museum in Paris, but for an art lover, the Musee d'Orsay is equally important, I would say. Since it is less crowded and much better arranged, it presents a much better viewing experience also. If you are fond of 'modern' art, i.e., late nineteenth to twenty first century art, Musee d'Orsay is a... More

Must for art lovers especially if you love impressionist artists.I went after 3 pm so it will not crowded and I took my time to enjoy the paintings.There r many seating places from where you admire the artworks.The museum s size is not that big so 2 hours r enough to see it all.

The museum is right at the river Seine and located in a beautiful building. I just walked around with my son, which is lovely, and didn't pay that much attention to the paintings.

The place was like an ant nest. If art is your thing go along you will probably love the works on display here. If you are going with your girlfriend or wife to keep them happy be ready to get bored quickly. Stunnning building though.

We had our 3 young kids under 6 years in tow, and the friendly employees let us skip the line (big thank you!). Our young kids weren't enthralled with all the impressive art pieces, but we were able to quickly see Monet, Degas, Cezanne, and Van Gogh. It was incredible to be in the presence of such greatness and we... More

In 1900 this building contained one of the largest railway stations in Paris. Picasso arrived here in late October of 1900 with his friend Carol Casagemas and began his Parisian life.

awesome, worth a solid 2.5 hours. linger and stare at whatever sculpture draws you in. the building itself is really nice. if it is hot outside, go in the peak afternoon hours and get some nice AC!
