Overview

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.

Anyone who appreciates pre-, post- and impressionist art needs to visit this museum. Collection is outstanding, galleries are not overwhelming, and the building itself is wonderful. A former train station transformed into a bright showcase for some of the world's masterpieces. The view of Sacre...More

If you love French impressionist art, don’t miss this. The building itself, a converted train station alone is worth the visit. The two cafés inside are not to be missed. One of them is situated behind one of the old clocks that can be seen...More

So much less crowded than its counterpart - majestic art in a timeless setting. You find yourself lost in the space and the art.

It's hard to choose what is more beautiful, the art or the building itself. If you like impressionism, then you'll love the Museum Orsay

Having been there before many years ago, we hadn't realised there was so much there. the highlight obviously is the Impressionist floor with a masterpiece round every corner. Beautiful building and a heavenly choir singing!

Fantastic museum with impressionist’s paintings. The building itself is beautiful. Although the museum is busy it is not full of tourists so it’s easy to navigate around the museum. It has an upstairs restaurant as well as a cafe downstairs but would suggest the restaurant...More

Although Louvre is the preferred museum of everybody visiting Paris, Orsay Museum is an excellent option that has a piece of everything and can be visited in less than a day depending of your interests. In particular, sculptures collection is awesome!

Not to be missed! Probably the best collection of Impressionist art in the world, all beautifully displayed. Go early to beat the crowds and purchase tickets ahead. Simply fabulous!

Check out the multiple-day pass. If you go first to a less-crowded site and buy there, you can skip the line for the duration of the pass. Last time, we bought at St. Chapelle and were set for the more-crowded sites.

I went last tuesday and the line took me more than an hour to get in. So i think the time is tight but doable if you buy ticket ahead and know where you are heading. But its tight
