Owner description: 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.

“Well worth a visit...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Spent a lovely afternoon at the museum ( when travelling on Eurostar , you can get 2 for 1 by showing your rail ticket)
Lots to see inside , with great views of the outside as well.

“Great morning.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

we spent an entire morning here and really enjoyed it. Big well lit spaces with the best art work you could imagine. Some great displays and easy to get around. Well worth the time to visit and get all arty in Paris!

“Watch out for the scammers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Approached every few minutes outside with people pretending to find a gold ring, offering it to you and then asking for a reward. Got to the point when the game was to spot the scammers. Watch out for the clipboard scammers as well-
shame really.

“Don't miss this museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

Great ambiance, not stuffy and all of the impressionists are there! It's in an old railway station and very unique. Even if you're not into museums per se, guarantee you'll like this one!
