My favourite museum in Paris. Amazing collection of art. The place itself is gorgeous. The way the old train station was transformed into a beautiful art icon is a work of art in itself. The place wasn't busy on Saturday morning. We got there at 10am. In fact we didn't purchase tickets in advance and we went in directly. Highly recommend Musèe d'Orsay.
It has been said before but I will say it again. It is my favorite Art Museum in Paris. It is more manageable than the Louvre due to its size and the way things are laid out. I love the amount of natural light coming through the old railway station roof. The collections are beautiful and done well. It is just one of the best in the world but can be too much if you are doing a lot of art museums in one day.
How to visit: Take the escalator (on the far side from the entrance) up to the 5th floor and walk slowly through the Impressionist area. When you get to the end take the escalator to the second floor and walk through the rest of the paintings and sculptures. if you have a real love of Arts and Crafts period of to see home furnishings visit floors 3 and 4 afterwords. The joy of this museum is that it is smaller and more approachable than the Louvre with pieces from a more modern era. It's still a world class collection but you will not find yourself lost inside, nor overwhelmed.
Just great. Not as large or magnificent as the Louvre, but it's a lot more manageable. The building itself--a refurbished station--is also a marvel. Get up close to Van Gogh and other impressionist, if you want. Study up on the museum before going to make it worthwhile. Take your time while there.
Best museum for my liking in Paris. The art is amazing, the layout of the museum is clean. Not too crowded. Some of the paintings are stunningly realistic. Wish the information was printed in English as well but it's France and they have it in French and you can get audio guides if needed.
