This museum is a delight, and my favourite art gallery I have visited in Europe. There isn’t as many tourists flooding through the building as the Louvre. The art is spectacular, and the building is more spacious and endearing than that of The Louvre. I...More

Impression and post impression well displayed. The museum is well organized with a good audio guide. Picasso exhibit outstanding, but so is regular collection of Monet/Renoir/Manet/Degas/Sisley, etc. This is a museum not to be missed

It would be inconceivable to visit Paris without revisiting the Musee d'Orsay. I first saw the Impressionists in the Jeu de Paume 46 years ago, and my tastes have moved on; however, Cezanne is unmissable, and Manet's Olympia is always beguiling. If you have been...More

No pictures in the Musee d'Orsay?! (12 Replies)
I was looking at the Musee d'Orsay website, when I ran across this page: http://www.musee-orsay.fr/ORSAY/orsaygb/HTML.NSF/By+Filename/mosimple+modempl+acces+acces?OpenDocument Does this mean I can't take photos inside without paying?!?!

I took it to mean those fees were for professionals who will be "disrupting" (no offense Randy!) the museum by requiring special lighting, large equipment, etc. I think for a tourist taking pictures **** without flash**** you can do as you like. (sorry about all the ****'s but that is SUCH a pet peeve of mine- people who use the flash and bit by bit, destroy the works of art)

Payment options at Eiffel Tower (1 Replies)
As we are trying to budget for how much cash to bring to our trip to France, does someone know if you can with VISA at places such as the Eiffel Tower and Musee Orsay? Thanks in advance.

Yes, you can purchase tickets at the Eiffel Tower with credit cards -- I don't remember about the d'Orsay, but would wager that you could pay with CC there, too. As far as cash -- ATM, ATM, ATM.. Way easier and way safer than wandering around with hundreds of dollars of cash on your person.
