Musee d'Orsay

Paris, France
4.6 / 5
Museum where collections of impressionists and post-impressionists are exhibited. The building was built at the opening of the World Exhibition in Paris in 1900 and was used as a railway station until 1939. The architecture of the museum is a combination of elements of an industrial style with classicism of the 19th century. After the station was closed, it was planned to demolish the house and build a hotel in its place, but then it was decided to organize a museum.

There is a lot to see, I loved the art nouveau furniture. The building is very unique. There are convenient free lockers where you can store your stuff. Once you enter you can't go back out.


Another piece of art in existence! Enjoy your time and do take your time. If you are interested in art beyond taking pictures, keep a day or two to cover this!
