My kids aren’t into arts, but they loved this museum. It can be crowded during the day, but we chose to go when it’s opened at night. It’s less crowded and we didn’t have to wait too long. If you buy tickets ahead of time...More

We visited many museums in London, Paris, and Florence and this was my favorite. Great place, excellent selections of art, especially the impressionism on the top floor. Good lunch restaurant too.

I don't normally like museums but a friend suggested it. This was the second best museum I have ever visited. Amazing venue, very open. They had a great selection of art with incredible lighting and presentation. 10 of 10 stars for sure.

If you like to see world class art, this is the place to visit in Paris, a museum inside a beautiful old train station, with some of the best impressionist paintings and sculptures in Europe, on the Left Bank of the Seine River.

Definitely recommend this museum. The building alone is beautiful and impressive but all the exhibitions add more colour to it.

Really enjoy the ambiance .. the art is great but after a while I need a break ...at the Louvre it feels there isn't anywhere to rest... At the Orsay just step out of the galleries and it feels open and relaxed.

Id suggest getting a museum pass... You can buy online or when you get there. It gives you access to most of the museums you will want to go to and gives you "fast pass" entry to some of them as well. Check it out online... More
