Musee d'Orsay

Recommendation by Lemi

The railway station Gare d’Orsay was also a product of the 1900 World’s Fair, built in a local style called Beaux-Arts. An elaborate stone facade looks out over the Seine, while arched windows and glass ceilings flood the hall with light. These days, the design works to Gare d’Orsay’s advantage as it has been converted into Musee d’Orsay. Gander at masterpieces from 1848 to 1914, an era that pretty much coincides with La Belle Epoque. Many of the big names at Le Petit Palais are also present at Musee d’Orsay, plus more! Keep your eyes peeled for some of Vincent Van Gogh’s most prized paintings, a self-portrait and “The Church at Auvers.”
