On the Left Bank of the Seine, the Musée d'Orsay is an architectural and cultural icon. Housed in the former Orsay railway station, with an impressive metal structure and stone façade, inaugurated for the World Exposition in July 1900, the Musee D'Orsay is a mandatory visit during your stay in Paris.
The Musée d'Orsay has essentially Western art dating from 1848 to 1915, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photographs. The Musée d'Orsay is probably more famous for owning the world's largest collection of masterpieces of Impressionist and Post, with works by Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cezanne, Seurat, Sisley, Gauguin and Van Gogh.
