  • Rating: 2/5

The Musée d'Orsay made headlines with its promotional video for this exhibition, but unfortunately the reality is nowhere near as stimulating. There's an enormous amount of material on show, but a lack of original interpretation or unifying narrative...

I agree with Brian. They wouldn't let me eat my baguette sandwich in front of an awesome impressionist painting and they don't allow you to touch the paintings. So disappointed. A must avoid. Simply time-wasting.


I have no clue what's with Brian and Chris. Impressionists! Indeed! The Nabis have always been downstairs. Basic collection on the fifth floor AND adjacent to the light lunch place. It is a FABULOUS place. NOt to be missed!


What a disappointment! We visited the Musee today and discovered that it has recently rearranged it's biggest drawcard, the Impressionists. Most are on the 5th floor, but Van Gogh has been mixed in with Gauguin and moved to the second floor, along with a few other odd paintings. The space is too small to allow a good view of the paintings if even a little crowded (ie Friday afternoon?). The walls are dark grey and there is only downwards yellow lighting to illuminate. The collection is still the best, but the arrangement and display are appalling. If you go, and agree, please complain so they do something.
