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.

In "royal" Paris, Orsay is viewable in a few hours (select paintings of course) and houses the greatest collections of impressionism (and post-impressionism) in the world. The views both inside the museum and to the Seine banks from the top lounge before entering the top...More

The Musee d'Orsay is my favorite museum in Paris. The building itself is so beautiful. It was converted from a train station, which was no longer being used for it's original purpose. It contains paintings by many of the French Impressionists. It also contains wonderful...More

Unlike the grandiose Louvre museum, Musee d'Orsay can give us a sense of intimacy since it is, in terms of size, much closer to the human scale. And it is my favorite museum since for me the 19th century art moves me more than any...More

I didn't actually go to this museum but really wanted to. On a Tuesday it was super busy. After the staged Disney type queue ended the line extended down the block and around the corner. The Louve had no line.

There are MANY museums in Paris, but if your love of impressionist art is as great as mine, then this is the museum for you. Head for the fifth floor!!

Next to the Louvre, the Orsay was one of our favorite museums in Paris! It has a wide mix of sculptures and paintings that were surprising to see. Well worth the time & money. The scene from the top floor balcony is amazing.

The museum is a lot easier to navigate than the Louvre and the art inside well worth the trip. We thoroughly enjoyed our two hours in there.

Check out the multiple-day pass. If you go first to a less-crowded site and buy there, you can skip the line for the duration of the pass. Last time, we bought at St. Chapelle and were set for the more-crowded sites.
