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 museum is beautiful in all ways. It is easy to navigate. It is filled with art and an easy set up to navigate. There is a good selection of art. I love the impressionist. It is small enough to navigate in a few hours....More

Fantastic museum in former train station. You get there a brief art history with the best examples. Old station clock is also remarkable.

Enjoyed it more than the Louvre. Great art, more organized and not as crowded! Impressionist art exhibits were fabulous!

Book on-line in advance to avoid the queues. This is a superb museum constructed from a former railway station. The impressionist collection is amazing but the sculpture hall; the furniture collection including pieces by Rennie Mackintosh are not to be missed. The two main restaurants...More

we visited mid morning. separate line for museum pass holders - maybe 5 minutes. Other line on other side of entrance was about 15 minutes - so not a major difference. But things can change hourly of course.
