Musee d'Orsay reviews
I simply love the Impressionists and the Musee d'Orsay in Paris has the best collection I've ever seen. more »
Excellent Museum with a rare collection of paintings 🖼 You will enjoy its design and the way it was organized. The reason why i didn’t give 5 stars is due to the absence of instructions on... more »
This museum was quite nice. Good layout and diversity of pieces. We got there around 11:30am and maybe waited 10 min in line. They moved the quantity of people quickly and the people working there were nice and polite. They had the art sectioned off so it was easy to walk through and know what you had and had not seen while still moving forward in a full circle. Would recommend to anyone on a trip to Paris.
Worth the lines and crowds (we went on a free day). The museum itself is awesome, and their collection is wonderful. Big name artists as well as others I was not familiar with. Wear comfortable shoes as most of the floors are stone.
