Anyone know the best days/times to visit Musee D'Orsay in Paris? I hear the crowds can be large. Any advice most welcome!
Thanks,

As soon as the place opens at 10am, get in there. Serious impressionism dude!

yeah queues can get kind of big, so either get there before it opens or go and do something else in the morning and get there bout 12 when the rush of morning people have already gone in!!!you will love it, its an amazing place!

I got there as soon as it opened. There was a line even at that time but it moved pretty fast. If you are tight on time, just go right to the top floor and skip the rest. It is a treat for connoiseurs of Impressionist art.

I have been a couple of times during winter and have never had any problems with crowds (obviously this would never occur in summer). Maybe I was just lucky but if it helps I got there mid afternoon...
