Musée d’Orsay

Located in a former train station originally built for the 1900 Paris Exposition, the Beaux Arts-style Musée d’Orsay building is a destination in of itself. However, you’ll also want to step inside, as this museum houses an incredible collection of impressionist art and French artworks that date from 1848 to 1914. The collection includes everything from paintings created by renowned artists to sculpture, decorative arts, and photography. If you have the time, visit the new exhibition space to see some fantastic rotating exhibitions.
