The place is busy with passengers and construction. It's having an upgrade across the site. Likely that Paris 2024 Olympics is the reason.

One of the busiest places in Paris, lots of people coming and going, trains going to a lot of places. Lots of TGV's. Places to eat and shop. Not many places to sit and wait. And not pretty. Functional.

As we love train stations, we visited this busy five-level station when we were in the neighbourhood. It’s an ugly modern building that has no special appeal, neither outside nor inside. But there is hope for the future as a major refurbishment, which will last...More

Compared with St Pancras and Paris Gare du Nord, this station felt like paradise! We had experienced problems with earlier rail connections and arrived at Montparnasse exhausted and bewildered.

All people were on the go, some moving at one direction others opposite. but we managed our way out since we came from another way. I was amazed of the movement of people around. Confusing but we did managed.
