What people say

"What do romantics love more than art? Nothing really, because art is all around us, like love. It can be a random street, a beautiful window that you notice while looking up, a fresh meal, rain starting to fall while you just got safely inside... it is endless. So, for romantics out there planning to visit this glorious town, I am so sorry to say, but you cannot miss out on Orsay. I highly suggest either one of the two options: buying your ticket online ahead of time, or visiting the museum for the first Sunday of the month - the entrance then is free. Long queues are inevitable, so bring a snack, a bottle of water and maybe something to read. Yes, it sounds like a lot of work, but inside are truly, truly breathtaking creations that make it worth it."
"The Orsay Museum holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1914, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography. It houses the largest collection of Impressionist and post-Impressionist masterpieces in the world, by painters including Berthe Morisot, Claude Monet, Édouard Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, Seurat, Sisley, Gauguin, and Van Gogh. The museum building was originally a railway station, Gare d'Orsay, located next to the Seine river.
