Love wandering this museum's spaces and finding new art to explore. The view of Paris from the top floor deck is not to be missed.

We spent the morning visiting the gallery. It was worth spending the time and not having to rush. The 19th Century and art nouveau collections are exceptional.

A museum to see those works of art that you have seen your whole life... The main hall is perfect in itself to sit and people-watch. I especially like the exhibit on the Paris Opera, and models of the stage.

Actually, I think this is my favorite section of Musee d’Orsay. Not just art you look at. Art you live in.

Nice and rare exhibition of these two periods. Unfortunately too many "intelligent" phones' owners are preventing the real art lovers to quietly admire the works!
