Owner description: 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.

“Best museum in Paris (with the Orangerie)”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

It is a great building, the impressionist paintings are fantastic and the sculptors exhibits just great. We also went to the Orangerie which is associated with the Musee D'Orsay and it was beautiful.

“Eyes Open. Silence your ears...”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

Bit too noisy compared to the others. However, eliminate the sounds and pretend that you're alone. The art and setting is amazing. Not to miss!

“all the good french old stuff”
Reviewed 26 April 2012

a great romp through france's (and other countries) semi-recent history of painting and sculpture. it is one of those museums which is really pleasingly laid out - in an old railway ticket hall - so you can see everything and dwell on what you will, without a queue backing up behind you. highlights include cross section of theatres, a town in a glass case below your feet and a big black sculpture of a lion looming over you as you enter the main hall.
