Tips and reviews

Here's what Trippy members say about Musée d'Orsay:

"Paris though: the Louvre Museum is amazing, but I love the Musee d'Orsay, which houses the largest collection of Impressionist art in the world within a fabulous former railway station building."  See More

"We stayed in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés Latin Quarter was close to everything you want to see, such as Luxembourg Garden, Musée d'Orsay, Notre Dame, The Louvre, took Uber to Eiffel Tower, Sacre Coeur Basilica, L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile (great shopping in this area), wife especially like the Louis Vuitton store."  See More

"The Latin Quarter is always beatiful even if it is really touristy and I absolutely love Jardin des Tuileries, Musée d'Orsay, Luxembourg Garden and the Sena banks."  See More

"com does do a walking tour here, Sacre Coeur Basilica, Musée d'Orsay, George Pompidou (Musee National d'Art Moderne), L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile-narrow staircase to the top but worth the climb."  See More

"Personally I would not miss the Musée d'Orsay, the L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile, the Tours de Notre Dame, Sainte-Chapelle and the Rue Mouffetard."  See More

"If you want to visit museums, try Musée d'Orsay'; Musee Rodin Musée Picasso or The Louvre (if I remember well at Louvre Thursday is the day with long opening hours"  See More

"In the afternoon see Musée d'Orsay or Musee Rodin, or both."  See More

"Three days in Paris can fly, especially if you like museums and are overcome by the scale and abundance of the The Louvre including the chance to see the Mona Lisa, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, Michelangelo's Slaves, and the Venus de Milo, or the Musée d'Orsay where you can sample an unparalleled collection of Impressionist and post-impressionist painters including Renoir, Monet, Manet, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Degas, Toulouse-Lautrec, Morisot, and Cassatt, among others."  See More

"Hi Riri, I would rearrange your itinerary as follows: Day 1- Take the Metro to the Palais Royal - Musée du Louvre Metro station and walk over to the Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel and then through the Jardin des Tuileries to the Place de la Concorde. The walk down the Champs Elysees Paris to the L'Arc de Triomphe de l'Etoile. If you don't want to walk all the way down the Champs Elysees, you can catch the Metro at either the Franklin D. Roosevelt or Georges V stations and take them to the Charles de Gaulle Étoile station at the Arc de Triomphe. From there, take the Metro to Trocadéro. Hopefully you will be there in the afternoon, when the light on the Eiffel Tower will be the best. Cross over and go up in the Tower. To avoid lines, purchase you tickets in advance at ."  See More

"For example Musée d'Orsay is really a must see."  See More

"The The Louvre and Musée d'Orsay both have late nights where you can schedule to go later in the day if you are enjoying the sunshine."  See More

"You can get a two (consecutive) day pass and visit The Louvre in the morning, have lunch, visit the Musée d'Orsay in the afternoon (pass almost paid for now); you can go up on the towers of Notre Dame Cathedral, up on top of the Arc de Triomphe, see the Musee Rodin and a number of other museums, not sure of the Eiffel Tower."  See More

"You could spend all day at just the The Louvre and nearly as much at the Musée d'Orsay, but if you know that you only want to focus on certain pieces or areas, then you can make those stops quicker and see more."  See More

"The Musée d'Orsay is free after a certain time."  See More

"If you decide you're looking to actually spend some money, I can't recommend highly enough the Paris Museum Pass - it's about 40 euros if I remember properly, and grants you admission to many of the top museums and cultural sites in Paris for that one price, including the The Louvre, the Musée d'Orsay, the Musée Picasso, Sainte-Chapelle, the towers of Notre-Dame, Château De Versailles if you feel like a quick trip out of the city."  See More

"For example, you can start from Arc de Triomphe and walk down the Avenue des Champs-Élysées when you arrive at the Le Grand Palais, which stands in front of Le Petit Palais (you can enter and have a look at it, it's really nice) you can turn toward the river and see the beautiful Pont Alexandre III and keep walking on the "quais" to see Musée d'Orsay or you go back to Avenue des Champs-Élysées and you keep walking towards Place de la Concorde, which is beautiful, then you just cross the street and you are at the Jardin des Tuileries which is the park of Louvre Museum."  See More
