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.

This is an absolute must! This is my favorite museum and is still great after multiple visits. On this visit unfortunately we were evacuated but the museum honored our tickets the next day for free so we could finish the rest of the museum. A must when in Paris.

This is one of the best museums. It is not overwhelmingly big which makes it a very enjoyable day to spend there. I love the cafe there too.
