This beautiful museum, once a railroad station, now houses a staggering collection of Impressionist art, as well as other items created between 1848 and 1914. In 2011, the museum is running a renovation of the top floor (impressionist gallery). Only ground and medium floor are accessible. The top floor will re-open on the 20th of October. Meanwhile, some impressionist masterpieces are not visible.

I had the privilege of conducting some historical research in the library of the Musee d'Orsay, and then the joy of walking through the museum every day of my research. What magical lighting surrounding the sculptures and the paintings. It's a beautiful place.

What a place to find yourself, surrounded by some of the finest art work in the world, and all pleasing to the eye, you can also enjoy a light meal in the café to break the day.

We had a wonderful time at this museum. Many of the art works we only knew from pictures, and to see them was a real treat.
