Our advice for the visit

  • The Musée d'Orsay is a victim of its success. There are always people at the entrance. This is not a problem once in the museum because it is very big. On the other hand, we strongly advise you to buy your tickets online before your visit.
  • The Musée d'Orsay is a vast museum, its visit may be tiring. We advise you to plan to do it a lunch break or snack. Plan to go there at staggered times to avoid the crowds.
  • The museum's website suggests an online "first visit" tour of 1h30.
