The Musée d’Orsay Museum France 

The Musée d’Orsay is a museum in Paris, France, on the left bank of the Seine. It is housed in the former Gare d’Orsay, a Beaux-Arts railway station built between 1898 and 1900. The museum holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1914, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography. It houses the largest collection of impressionist and post-Impressionist masterpieces in the world, by painters including Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, Seurat, Sisley, Gauguin and Van Gogh. Many of these works were held at the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume prior to the museum’s opening in 1986. It is one of the largest art museums in Europe.

This is a great museum with lots of amazing art to see. This is not somewhere you can go for an hour or two if you want to see everything. You need a few hours to get round a lot of the art which meant being there for lunch in my case. If you leave the building your ticket is invalid. The restaurant is an amazing venue.

The French impressionist works are on the 5th floor, which is a bit of challenge to find initially. It is worth going there just to see those. The museum itself is beautiful and contain huge history.

The museum have some great artifacts. Painted my great artist. Due to it greatness they are very expensive. They are kept in great care. Many skilled man are hired to keep these art work safe.
