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.

Musee d'Orsay was installed in the old former Orsay railway station more than 20 years ago. Original big clock is still there! Since museum acquired paintings of impressionists- lot of people, fans of Van Gogh, Boudin , Cezanne, Toulouse-Lautrec and more- visited that place to enjoy the art. Paintings, sculptures, a lot of things to see. One traveler wrote: trying... More

Would revisit. Slight wait to get through security on a Thursday night but nothing too bad. Great museum and being under 25 and getting in for free was amazing. Some fantastic artworks on display and lovely sculptures. Highly recommend.

This is our fourth visit to Musee D'Orsay. There was some redesign to the layout, but still an overwhelming collection. The building was a railroad station and as you enter, you see the tremendous station clock overhead. Next you descend to the main floor and lifesize "statue of liberty" awaits on your right. You immediately become involved with lots of... More

I love the steampunk atmosphere of this old railroad station-turned museum. Especially the large clock with the view of Paris behind it. There are also beautiful pieces on exhibit full time, and amazing traveling exhibits like the Van Gogh exhibit they had in 2014 or the current pictures of prostitution that is currently on display. If you've never been, you... More

Even if Musée du Louvre is the most famous museum in Paris, I prefer this one...The building is amazing and the collection is unique!

It had a variety of art, from marble sculptures to ceiling high paintings. There were several levels of art to visit, however, the ground level was the most comprehensive one. Would recommend going.

We were recommended to visit this Museum and we were certainly not disappointed. This Museum has certainly a Wow facture from the time you enter. We walked around for four hours and did not get to see all of the exhibits. So many famous artists are exhibited here. Wonderful place. It is situated in a former Railway Station on the... More

This is my third visit to the museum. It is undergoing some renovations, so some of the main impressionist collection is relocated or not on display. I never could find the Degas' Tiny Dancer. However, my main rooms are the Van Gogh ones. The paintings were as beautiful as I remember them. The entire top floor is not accessible.

Every time I visit Paris I go to the Mussee D'Orsay. Just walking into the main hall takes my breath away. This visit was on a rainy day, so it was very busy. We found respite from the crowds in the delightfully curated and quiet Art Nouveau section.
