Cancellation policy

Established in 1986, the Orsay Museum is one of the newest museums in Paris but also one of the most important. It is an institution that houses paintings from one of the most influential periods of French Art - the Impressionist and Post-Impressionist eras of the late 19th Century.

At the Orsay Museum, you will not only see famous paintings but also have the chance to catch sweeping views of Paris from its top floor. The Orsay Museum is situated at the heart of Paris, right next to the Seine, and is located opposite the famous Tuileries Gardens. Once you walk into the building, you will be in the company of some of the greatest French artists and their works.

Once inside, you are free to explore the museum as you like. The exhibitions are arranged in a chronological manner, with early 19th-century sculptures and classical paintings on the ground floor, leading up to the Impressionist paintings on the second and top floors. Most of the highlights of the Orsay Museum are on the top floor.
