Musee d'Orsay reviews
We spent a morning at this beautiful museum. My favorite part was definitely the Impressionist Gallery and the van Gogh exhibit. It was wonderful to see so many stunning works of art in person.

Hands down the best museum in Paris. Its a beautiful building, has amazing art, and right on the Seine.

This museum was quite nice. Good layout and diversity of pieces. We got there around 11:30am and maybe waited 10 min in line. They moved the quantity of people quickly and the people working there were nice and polite. They had the art sectioned off so it was easy to walk through and know what you had and had not seen while still moving forward in a full circle. Would recommend to anyone on a trip to Paris.
Worth the lines and crowds (we went on a free day). The museum itself is awesome, and their collection is wonderful. Big name artists as well as others I was not familiar with. Wear comfortable shoes as most of the floors are stone.
