Musée d'Orsay, Paris: 274 reviews and 558 photos
Inaugurated in 1986, Musée d'Orsay is one of the city's newer museums. It is housed in an impressive, disused railway station (Gare d'Orsay), which was completed in 1900 for l'Exposition Universelle. The museum displays French/European art mainly from 1850 to 1920, and contains an enviable collection of paintings by famous artists of the period, such as Van Gogh, Manet, Cézanne, Monet, etc. Musée d'Orsay is a favourite of many, not only because it contains a beautiful and recognisable collection of art, but also due to its perfect size, less overwhelming than a museum such as the Louvre, but large enough to make you fulfilled after the visit.
