"Musee d'Orsay" Musee d'Orsay Tip by Diana75
Musee d'Orsay, Paris: 275 reviews and 558 photos
Built as a railway station in 1900 (Gare d?Orsay), the place was transformed into a museum and inaugurated by the President Mitterrand in 1986.
I liked very much the impressive Louvre, but I have to admit that Orsay is my favorite museum in Paris.
The visit was like a pleasant walk through French paintings, sculptures, architecture and decorative art from 1848 to 1914, brilliantly alternated.
The fact that the collections are displayed in chronological order and by theme certainly helps a lot.
The entrance is free with Paris Museum Pass.
A free plan of the museum is available at the entrance.
Opening hours: 10 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.
Directions: M: Solférino (line 12)
