Musée d’Orsay FAQs

Your Musée d’Orsay tickets get you all the time you need at this popular Parisian attraction, but most people spend between 3 to 4 hours inside this massive former train station.

The Musée d'Orsay's impressive permanent collection covers four entire floors and several important periods in history, so it's a good idea to think about which key artists you're most interested in and focusing your visit.

The best time to visit the Musée d’Orsay is on a Wednesday or Friday morning or afternoon. These days tend to be quieter, so your Musée d’Orsay tickets will take you further, on a far more peaceful journey.

If it's hard to visit during these times, take advantage of Thursday's extended evening hours. There tend to be fewer children and families on Thursdays after 18:00.

During Paris's low season (November to March) is also a good time to visit. No matter the season, weekends will always be busy!

There are two different cafes inside the Musée d’Orsay:

  • Café de l'Ours is the perfect place for a quick drink or snack, on a self-service basis
  • Café Campana is a brasserie-style café that serves up bigger meals

During museum opening times, you are free to photograph or film in the permanent exhibition halls.

Keep in mind these photos or videos should be kept for personal or private use, and not for groups or commercial purposes.
