THE MUSÉE D'ORSAY

THE MARQUIS LOVES THE MUSEE D'ORSAY

The Musée d'Orsay is still today a key venue to visit in Paris...

Rich of history, rich of works of art, the Musée d'Orsay, located on the left bank of the Seine, is a cultural place in the heart of the French capital.

Before being a museum, it was originally a railway station. It was in 1900 that the Orsay station was built to host the Universal Exhibition in Paris. This place has become one of the most beautiful of Paris by its architectural style. In 1986, President Valéry Giscard d'Estaing decided to transform the railway station into a museum of 19th century arts and officially inaugurated it.

Since, the Musée d'Orsay has become known throughout the world for being a mainstay of Impressionist art collections, receiving an average of 3 million visitors each year. It also brings together all the artistic creation of the Western world from 1848 to 1914. It is a period of history where society faced a multitude of upheavals, which had repercussions on the artistic movements (from neoclassicism to symbolism collections).

There is something for everyone here, as you will find paintings, decorative arts, photographs, sculptures, pastels... Impressionism is suggested in all its forms.

EMBARK ON A CULTURAL JOURNEY

Who says railway station, also says trip!

If you are in Paris, we recommend you to stop at the Musée d'Orsay. Don't stay on the platform, and enter this palace-like station. Whether you are alone or accompanied, the establishment adapts to each one by proposing guided tours, family workshops, mysterious nights visits... Come and take the time to understand the world by strolling in the museum.

Take a trip with several connections for several artistic movements to discover. This place also hosts temporary exhibitions throughout the year!

For eyes pleasure, we advise you to stop for a moment; to interrupt your journey; in front of the impressive old-style clock with golden ornaments and Roman numerals, as well as in front of the masterpieces Dancer Aged 14 by Degas (original sculpture made of wax and adorned with a pink tulle tutu thavoir la at plunges us into her reality) or in front of Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe by Manet (modern painting that breaks the codes of the time).
