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.

Ok...we had to wait in line outside in the snow for 40 minutes so that part was not fun. However, the museum is amazing. van Gogh, Monet, Renoiri, Toulouse-Latrec, and so many more it was crazy. They even had Whisler's Mother hanging there. We spend 5 hours here and it was so worth it.

There are lots of museums in Paris but I'd say this is definitely worth a visit if you are only doing 1. The entry fee is pretty reasonable relative to other European galleries. The building itself, which has recently been spruced up, is super impressive and almost worth the trip itself. The art though is the obvious attraction. I am certainly no art expert but I was very impressed with the Impressionist rooms. I'd be surprised if most people don't recognise several of the pictures on display. Lots of famous artists' - Renoir, Monet, Manet, Sisley, Van Gogh - work on view. A good couple of hours spent here.

Outstanding. Not only were the exhibits mind shattering, but the building itself is a work of art. It used to be a train station and has since been restored. You cannot go to the Musee d'Orsay without visiting Van Gogh & Monet in person. Even my 10 year old daughter was interested in seeing the art work with bare naked eyes up close. Owning the prints in your own home just will never be the same. Recommend purchasing tickets in advance. We showed up with our museum pass and got to by pass the horrendous ticket line. We also ate at the cafe on the 5th floor. There was a line to be seated, but unlike french style, they actually served quite quick. It doesn't matter where you start or what you see, JUST GO!
