Great museum! It can definitely get busy so get there early in the morning to avoid the lines. The Rick Steve's audio tour gives a tour of the museum with great highlights. Be sure to make sure to check out the other rooms because after the tour you can miss a lot if you don't wander around. The cafe at the top had quite a line so we weren't able to try. I prefer a picnic by the river.
Overcrowded but for good reason, the artworks are stunning and they let you take pictures without a flash. It was a lively place with music and a friendly helpful staff. Very beautiful. The only downside was the restaurant; I had the Picasso Circus Blue & Red lunch in a gorgeously decorated room. The meal was absolutely delicious, but I’ve been sick from it ever since. First time getting sick from restaurant food during my 5 week trip. That’s why only 3 stars.
After intensively traveling across Europe, it’s easy to get bored about museums, especially if you just like to enjoy them and you are not an expert. Musée d’Orsay it’s an atypical one and deserves to be discovered. The place itself is a curious structure, paints and statues are scattered across various areas and multiple levels. Even the internal restaurant is placed in a remarkable room. You could spend between 2 and 5 hours in this museum. If you don’t want to spend too many hours inside museums when you are in Paris, and you still want to see some masterpieces, this is the perfect choice.
Fantastic. Loved it. The security is tight to get in, but that is understandable. It is an amazing building just in itself, being an old train station and a lot of the original architecture is still there. If you love impressionistic art than give yourself many hours because there are so many famous artists and their work that you are going to want to take your time. They are all there. Also, a fine collection of furniture and room decorations on the left hand side which are just as fascinating. Enjoy.
Great place to visit. There are a lot of beautiful paintings and sculptures from great artists. The place is very well organized and it's easy to walk once it is not too crowded in comparison with Louvre Museum. You can get audio guides and the people working there are helpful. In general I recommend it.
