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.

Enjoyed the building and architecture as much as the art. What a fantastic place. Well worth the time to see some of the classics.

This is one of Paris's best-known museums, with a huge, varied collection, including wonderful impressionist paintings and ancient Greek sculptures. The setting, within an enormous old train station, is particularly striking. It's easy to take breaks and appreciate the spaces within the building. This museum feels more manageable than the Louvre, which can be quite overwhelming. If you have a... More

What I love about d'Orsay is that you can go nose to nose with numerous well known paintings by Van Gogh, Monet, Manet, and many others. Take you r time to see pieces from your art history books up close from every angle, breathtaking! It is not hidden behind plate glass, blocked by railings like some other places. The space... More

We were surprised to find long lines on a Tuesday morning, but once inside it is easy to see the popularity of this place. We especially enjoyed the special exhibition -- Bazile -- but otherwise I could not escape the impression that the place is just overstuffed with, um, stuff. Don't get me wrong, there are wonderful works here. The... More

It's a great museum to visit if you have a small amount of time in Paris. If you enjoy impessionists and post-impressionist painters, the 5th floor is worth the trip. Easy access from the HOHO bus.

If you are not an art lover or are not interested in it then this museum can be given a miss. The entry is 12EUR pp only for the museum and in case you want a combined ticket with Rodin Museum or Orangine then that is around 16 EUR. The good part was that we did not have to wait... More
