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.

No wonder this place is rated #1 on tripadvisor. The interior was most impressive and with so many pieces of great artwork. Organized by themes, it was much more enjoyable to see than some other museums.

The clocks do make a great focal point, and the views from the inside are spectacular. Probably will be a 2-3 hour visit for most, but truly enjoyable.

Tip: Combine the d'Orsay with a trip to Versailles; they are on the same RER "C" line anyway.

Very nice museum, including the building itself. Very good surprise, as it was not planned to visit it. I recommend it to all travelers spending moré than 3 days in París.

Every exhibit and room was incredible. Arrive early or later in the afternoon as this is a "must see" museum for every traveler. Ticket lines can be long and exhibits are crowded.
