The Musée d'Orsay: a treasure house of art in Paris

What awaits you on site


The Musée d'Orsay, located on the left bank of the Seine in the heart of Paris, is one of the most important art museums in the world. It is located in a former train station, the Gare d'Orsay, which was built especially for the 1900 Universal Exhibition. The impressive Beaux-Arts style building was converted into a museum in 1977 and officially opened in 1986.The Musée d'Orsay houses an outstanding collection of artworks dating from 1848 to 1914, with a particular focus on Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works. Visitors can admire masterpieces by artists such as Claude Monet, Edgar Degas, Édouard Manet, Vincent van Gogh, Paul Cézanne and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.In addition to paintings, the collection also includes sculptures, photographs, arts and crafts and furniture from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Particularly noteworthy is the famous clockwork in the main hall of the museum, which is reminiscent of the time when the building was still a train station.

The Musée d'Orsay is not only a place of art, but also an architectural jewel. The tasteful transformation of the former train station into a modern museum preserves the historical structure and combines it harmoniously with the works of art on display. It is a must-see for any art lover and a central part of the cultural landscape of Paris.
