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.

We were dog tired from walking and looking at all of the wonderful art. We decided to grab a bite to eat and relax. The food was very good and the service just as good. We enjoyed our food very much. Well worth the money.

A much more manageable size than the Louvre - it didn't feel overwhelming! The building and the exhibits were beautiful, and as it wasn't busy on our visit we were able to enjoy the museum at our leisure. The restaurant was also good. Beautiful setting, good food and friendly service.

What a luck we visited Paris outside of high season. This museum with the best collection of famous impressionist paintings is very popular and can be very full of visitors. So choose your time to visit carefully. Be aware it's closed on Mondays.

Excellent museum and in my opinion much more manageable than the Louvre. It is located in an old train station and is quite beautiful inside. It has a wonderful collection of Monet, Renoir, Degas, Gaugin and Van Gogh. We spent a half a day there and it was very enjoyable.

This is my father's favorite museum and we came here first before going to the Louvre. The paintings and exhibitions here are so different and the visits are always a pleasure. We discovered that there is a restaurant on the top floor decorated with transparent chairs and peppy colored chandeliers and decor with a moderated priced menu. I must come... More
