Amazing museum ...INCREDIBLY crowded. So disappointing! It was impossible to get close to many of the works one hopes to see. Folks were shuffling through some of the exhibits, body to body, like herds of cattle. I apologized to my family for insisting on visiting Orsay. We wasted half a day -- our last day in Paris -- and could have been enjoying so many other options.
A must see! The collection of impressionist is probably the best in the world. Hosted in a old train station. I would also suggest an 'extension' to this museum by going to the museum of l'Orangerie in the Tullieries close to the Place de la Concord to see beautiful, large paintings of Monet in a small and easy to navigate venue.
For many, this is a better visit than the "Louvre"; smaller and more accessible with some of the most famous modern and abstract paintings. Recommend the restaurant upstairs and when you're there, don't just look down at your plate, take a look at the ceiling - very impressive!
ART LOVER make time for this museum. Blown away by this place. you can manage this place in a few hours and it is packed with some of the most interesting and famous treasure from classical periods. Seriously the best museum I have ever been to and I travel.
Absolutely amazing. So many works of art, especially my favourite Van Gogh, that alone was worth the visit. Tip, visit on the first Sunday of the month when entry is free. Go early though as there are usually long queues.
Our second trip and again not disappointed. Get a museum pass to ensure that you skip the lines. A 4 day pass is the way to go as it allows you to see heaps of museums and gives you time to rest in between. Under 18's are free to all museums in Paris so you only need adult tickets. If your child is close to 18, make sure they bring their student id with them. I was disappointed to see that in the last 19 years, the railway tracks have been removed and so a lot of the ambience of the original building has been lost. Still, the artwork makes up for it. Don't forget to take the walk up 5 flights of stairs to see the Rodin exhibition. Do it first, so that your feet don't feel like dropping off at the end of the day. There are a number of Metro stations nearby and I recommend using them. We walked 9 mintues from Metro to Museum and had fun watching everyone in their business garb at lunch time. Don't leave the museum to late in the day as you will run out of time to see everything. There is no need to do a tour or have a headset. If you know a little about art, then you will enjoy yourself even more. But it's not necessary to know anything at all, to have a thoroughly enjoyable time at the Museé dÓrsay
The rooms are newly remodeled and very nice. The location was terrific. Just a few minutes walk to Place de Concorde, the Louvre museum, the D'Orsay museum, the Seine river, views of the Eiffel Tower, ... I could go on and on. The tree lined neighborhood is classic Paris. Busy with foot traffic, bicycles, scooters, cars and buses. You get the flavor of the pace of Paris watching them all go by. Lots of local brasseries, restaurants, markets and shops along the street outside.
The hotel is located about 3 blocks from the Orsay Museum, a couple of blocks from the Seine, and in a quiet area with lots of art galleries nearby. It's an easy walk to the Rue St. Germain des Pres with lots of shops, and to the Louvre across the river. The hotel is small, but quiet, my room was elegantly furnished and comfortable, and the staff were all helpful (especially Marie). The breakfast offerings were fresh and tasty.
Very nice little hotel in a great area. I could easily walk to Orsay museum, Jardins de Luxemburg and Rodin museum. Many shops around and nice restaurants not very far away. The room was spotless and the staff is very friendly. I had a great stay!
Musée d'Orsay because is not too big with really good paintings and they have helpful audio guides.
Visit the Musée d'Orsay and see masterpieces of impressionists and post-impressionists.
