Which fine art museums should a first-time visitor to Paris start with?

Netherlands Iliana, Netherlands

The Louvre is way too large for one visit. At the Louvre I choose only the period I am interested in, like Middle Ages, and only spend about 3 hrs at a time - afterwards I do something else. I recommend the Musee D'Orsay if you love impressionisms and fine sculptures and the Musee de LÓrangerie is a most if you like Monet. The museum of the Middle Ages (Cluny) is a most if you are interested in that period. Make time to just walk around, it is a beautiful city. Shopping is too expensive, but I found some lovely items while walking around while nothing affordable at the main shopping malls and streets.
