I have traveled many times to Paris and the long lines to enter this museum has always deterred me. But this time, thanks to prepurchasing the Paris Pass, I was able to skip the lines and enter through a back entrance. And the museum did not disappoint. I finally got to see all of the art I had so long... More

Otherwise you will have a very long queue. Easy to book online and the ticket is valid for three months. The building itself is fabulous and the most obvious attraction is the huge collection of impressionist painting and, my favourite, Degas' bronze sculpture of the little dancer.

First class visiting exhibition of works by Vincent Van Gogh. Long queues but worth it. Apart from this special exhibition the museum houses some of the most important works of art in the world in its permanent exhibitions and should be visited for these alone along with some incredible views of Paris from the upper floors.

The museum has a unique setting-an old railroad station that is far from being old. It is grand. The exibition rooms are tucked in iright and left side of the main gallery. There ar e benches for resting and just admiring the statues and paintings. The art theme was human suffering when we were visiting. So, they must have some... More

Get the combo ticket online with Musee l'Orangerie for 19€ to skip the lines in both museums. It was crazy busy on the holiday weekend we visited so we mainly looked at the impressionist collection which is very impressive and contains some beautiful pieces of art.

Stunning building that is a converted railway station. Sympathetically modernised into a functional gallery space with lots of open space. Fantastic collections including the impressionists and expressionists. The glass clock is a must see, you can stand behind the clock and look over the city and river. A relaxed and chilled out atmosphere where you can take the weight off... More
