The impressionist movement operated during the 19th century, or specifically, 1865 – 1885 and prompted visible yet simplistic brush strokes. Impressionism was, at the time, met with critique and belittlement due to its provocative nature. Now, does this still hold true or has it become a respected form of art. We wanted to find out and thus, decided to analyze The Musée d’Orsay.

What did we find out?

The impressionistic “art” is beloved by visitors due to its grading of 4,80 / 5, it’s beautiful and it’s everything they could hope for. The actual building is also highly graded at 4,77 / 5 and customers love that they refurbished an old train station. However, one downside to any museum is people. Too many visitors are equal to a “crowded” experience. The Musée d’Orsay is however unaffected by this issue which is very impressive. It should be noted that this isn’t only due to Covid-19, visitors were happy with the crowd-control before the pandemic as well.
