Musée d'Orsay in Paris

Show Map
Housed in a former ''Beaux-Arts'' railway station (completed in 1900 for the ''Exposition Universelle'', later saved from demolition and converted to its present use), the rambling, open-plan museum is home to the works of the great artists of the 19th century (1848-1914) - Impressionists, post-Impressionists, and the rest - that were formerly displayed in the Louvre. This is perhaps the most spectacular collection of European impressionism in the world-- breath-taking rooms full of Manet, Reno
