This is my favourite museum in the world. Yeah, I know I haven't been to them all but I've hit some of the biggest and this, by far, is my favourite - because it has the most extensive Impressionism collection I've seen in one spot.
I really did prefer this over the Louvre. There were fewer people and it's not as overwhelming as the Louvre. The building is amazing, as well - I love the view from the upper level of the back of the building to the front of the building. The clock is amazing!

This once upon time train station has been rehabilitated into this gorgeous museum. The architecture itself of the museum is just what can make you satisfied if you're not into Art. But I do love art, and had learned all these modern paintings in college, so seeing them live, at their actual size was pretty fascinating. I loved it even more than the Louvre, where here are the impressionists, expressionists,... where the Louvre was more Classical. The restaurant and cafes in it are magnificent.

This is my favorite museum in Paris. It has a fabulous collection of impressionist paintings. It is located in the former Gare d'Orsay, a magnificent railway station built late 1800s.

My favorite museum in Paris. It's a beautiful building and it looks more beautiful from the inside. All my favorite Dégas, Van Goghs and Picassos are there.
The restaurant is absolutely lovely, you'll feel like you're dining with Marie Antoinette herself in a crystal chandellier lit ballroom.

This museum used to be an old train station, which was built in the beaux-art style. This makes the building itself a work of art worthy of the many beautiful pieces inside. The museum is dedicated mostly to impressionist and post-impressionist artists like Monet, Degas, Gauguin and Van Gogh. It is a must see for the art aficionado.

The museum is housed in the former Gare d'Orsay, a railway station built between 1898 and 1900. It holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1915, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography. It houses the largest collection of impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces in the world, by painters including Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, Seurat, Sisley, Gauguin and Van Gogh.

Amazing building, amazing art collection - particularly if you love the Impressionists ! Walk to Musee d'Orsay from our apartment or take the hop-on, hop-off batobus boat from Ile Saint Louis and enjoy Paris from the Seine.

Easily my favorite museum! It is easy to navigate, clear signage, not so huge that you feel lost and the light that trickles in makes you feel like your in a big beautiful bubble! If you only have time to visit one museum make it the Orsay.

Once you've 'done' The Louvre this should be your next artistic port of call in Paris. This stunning museum houses some incredible art and is worth the trip to Paris alone.
