The Basics

With its position in the 7th arrondissement, just across the river from the Jardin des Tuileries, the Orsay Museumis easy to visit during a day of sightseeing in central Paris. Tickets are available on site, but you can avoid any wait by booking a skip-the-line ticket or a guided museum tour in advance. Or, opt for an enhanced experience that combines an art walking tour with a Orsay Museumskip-the-line ticket.

Once inside, you'll be immersed in the world of Monet, Pissarro, Renoir, and other masters of the 19th and 20th centuries. Works include Degas'The Ballet Class and Van Gogh'sStarry Night. In addition to the paintings, don't miss the museum's large clock, which you can look through for a view of the Right Bank.

Musée d'Orsay Highlights Tour with Gourmet Lunch
Want to see the impressionists? This guided tour was amazing. A very knowledgeable guild took us on a mini history tour of art. We took the optional meal after in a most elegant restaurant and authentic French cuisine. North American visitors should remember to order their meat dishes one greater than they normally like as medium will be very rare, but armed with that knowledge, enjoy!

Skip-the-line Musée d’Orsay Paris Guided Private Tour Including Entrance Fees
The D'Orsay of course is now where some of the most beautiful Impressionist paintings are exhibited in Paris. The D'Orsay is a gorgeous converted railroad station (it does not look like an Amtrak station), and the paintings are beautiful. Our guide was very knowledgeable and showed us exactly what we wanted to see--also skipped those items that were of less interest to us. Really a nice tour!

Musee d'Orsay is amazing

Skip the Line: Musée d'Orsay and Access to Self-guided tours in Paris
Musee d'Orsay is a jewel of Paris and filled to the brim with world-class artwork. Although it was busy, it was not as busy as the Louvre. Located in a former train station, it is both nostalgic and modern. Any visit to Paris should include a visit to the d'Orsay.

Dining at theOrsay Museum

If you get hungry for something light, sandwiches and salads can be purchased at Café de l'ours, but for a more thematic dining experience at the museum, visit one of its two restaurants. At Café Campana, enjoy classic Parisian brasserie fare in a dreamy underwater environment inspired by Emile Gallé, a French artist and influencer of Art Nouveau. Or go upscale at the Restaurant du Musée d'Orsay, where French cuisine related to museum events is served in an elegant, chandelier-lined room with gilded detailing and large windows.
