Definitely recommend this museum. The building alone is beautiful and impressive but all the exhibitions add more colour to it.

Really enjoy the ambiance .. the art is great but after a while I need a break ...at the Louvre it feels there isn't anywhere to rest... At the Orsay just step out of the galleries and it feels open and relaxed.

The line was very long as I did not buy my ticket ahead of time - I think about an hour wait with two rude people who kept pushing against me. Other than that it’s a lovely museum and I am glad I took it...More

Situated in an old railway station this houses a wonderful display of Impressionism paintings from Money to Gauguin, Van Goghs and various sculptures and pieces of furniture. Went early on Sunday so queues were short , got busier later . Definitely well worth a visit.

Quite a lot to see in a lot of different sections of the museum, allocate plenty of time or you will feel rushed. You can get up behind the clock which is spectacular.

I really can’t remember details like this but the museum has a detailed map at the front for visitors. Most the exhibits are on two floors so easy to navigate when you’re there in person.😅

Id suggest getting a museum pass... You can buy online or when you get there. It gives you access to most of the museums you will want to go to and gives you "fast pass" entry to some of them as well. Check it out online... More
