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.

Order your tickets online for 'speedy boarding'. Tiqets is a handy site for this. For interesting information I would advise to hire an audio guide. Attached some details of paintings and fine pieces of art (the naked man is Job).

The sight alone of the building is awe inspiring but be careful to go during non peak times. The museum is large and there are lots of things to see, from paintings to furniture. There is free wifi and plenty of restaurants around the area, if you get tired please visit the small restaurant on the second floor. It has... More

Get up early and be there when museum opens. Worth a visit to admire the old station architecture and industrial heritage as well as pose for a photo in front of the clock face. We opted to view the great collection of impressionists works and Van Gochs but much more on offer for art lovers. The restaurant on the fifth... More

This is a wonderful museum that rejoices in its architecture and past as a railway station, rather than cramming too much into too many dark rooms. The beautiful and airy central atrium/sculpture hall is a work of art in itself and I like the evocative destination names atop the columns. I do love the paintings - especially the Caillebottes -...

The wondersul sculptures on the center of the ground floor and the main impresionist painters on both sides. However you should not missed the first floor where are some pictures of less known painters but some of them fantastic including English and Spanish artists.

We went on a Thursday when they are open late and it was FANTASTIC!!! It is a "not to miss" when in Paris! Everything is amazing and I especially enjoyed the 5th floor! We also enjoyed a delicious dinner at the restaurant located on the first floor which I would highly recommend. It has wonderful French cuisine and is listed... More
