Musee D'Orsay takes me back in time
The Louvre may be the most well-known museum in Paris, but I prefer the Musee D’Orsay for its contemporary art and Beaux-Arts architecture. It was built as a train station in the late 1800’s and it is truly a masterpiece itself, even without the paintings...
The Louvre may be the most well-known museum in Paris, but I prefer the Musee D’Orsay for its contemporary art and Beaux-Arts architecture. It was built as a train station in the late 1800’s and it is truly a masterpiece itself, even without the paintings and sculptures. The glass domed ceiling in the main alley is truly spectacular, and one can’t miss the grand ornate clock that hangs at the end of the alley. The art is a fantastic mix of paintings by the masters Van Gogh, Cezanne and Renoir, and sculptures by Rodin. Though the museum had many patrons that day, it did not feel crowded. Don’t miss the Musee D’Orsay on your next trip to Paris.
