Musée d'Orsay


Housed in the former Orsay station, the Orsay Museum is the impressionist museum of Paris. Built in 1900, the beautiful "Gare d'Orsay" was one of Paris main stations with trains to Bordeaux. Located across the Louvre Museum on the Seine river left bank, it has been spectacularly renovated from 1977 to 1986 to host the Orsay Museum collections.

The Orsay Museum, a must for art lovers, is known worldwide for its fabulous impressionist paintings. The "Impressionism" was a French painting school in the second half of the 19th century. The impressionists included Auguste Renoir, Claude Monet, Edgar Manet and Theo Van Gogh. They are famous for having departed from the tradition of reproducing the real world.
