Better than the Louvre, in my opinion, particularly if you prefer more modern art - better layout and and more interesting presentation. If you don't have much time in Paris, skip the Louvre and head straight to D'Orsay
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.
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.
