Tip: The Musee de l'Orangerie and Musee d'Orsay offer a double pass (or billet jumelé) that gets you into both museums at a reduced rate (I think it's good for four or five days, with one visit to each museum). If you buy it at l'Orangerie, which should have pretty short lines since it's relatively small and, it seems, not as popular with tourists, you can then skip the line at d'Orsay (which was insane when I visited). The 'skip the line' option is the best thing ever.
