Owner description: 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.

I loved that this museum was in an old train station. The art was indescribable especially if you like Impressionists. You can almost touch the paintings.

Easy to navigate and does not take all day (or several) like the Louvre. My favourite art museum in Paris.

This is a must do for all Art lovers. It is smaller and much easier to navigate than some of the others. Wonderful old train station converted with out door views and wonderful art.
