Avoid waiting in a long line. I purchased my ticket online and was able to walk right pass the long, long line waiting to go in. Musee d'Orsay is small enough to spend an afternoon and see most of the great art. There is so...More

There is no two ways about it. The Musee D'Orsay is a stressful place to visit, even if the art is worth seeing. I certainly wouldn't call the atmosphere welcoming, nor the general layout comfortable. The museum simply must do something about its people management....More

Make sure to get a ticket in advance to avoid the queue. Very much enjoyed the Renoir exhibit juxtaposing father and son's work with extracts from Jean Renoir's films.

The Musee d'Orsay houses some of the most impressive artwork in the world, and its interior is reason enough to visit. Located in a former station for the World's Fair, the main concourse is absolutely stunning (as is its massive clock!) A must-see when visiting...More

Very nice sequel to the collections in Louvre museum. If you are interested in that period, you need at least a full day to explore. Truly unmissable.

If you have a limited amount of museum-going time in Paris, I recommend you put the Musee d'Orsay at the top of your list. (Go to the Louvre too, if you have time, but please don't miss the Orsay!) I consider the Musee d'Orsay to...More
