The Musée d’Orsay is home to France’s national collection of Impressionist, Post-Impressionist and Art Nouveau works.

The Musée d’Orsay is housed in the stunning Beaux-Arts style Gare d’Orsay railway station on the left bank of Paris’s River Seine. It’s rich in history, both in the works that are hung on its walls, and through the grandeur of the building itself. A recent renovation has given the museum more exhibition space and vibrantly colored gallery walls, to match the works on display.
The Musée d’Orsay’s collection includes excellent examples of French art from 1848-1914, including many of the most significant Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings ever created. Significant and stunning works by painters including Gauguin, Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, and Van Gogh.
All of the works in the Musée d’Orsay are the product of the period 1848-1914, positioned between the works of the neighboring Louvre Museum’s works, and the collection of the nearby Pompidou Centre.
With a diverse collection of artworks from one of the most dynamic periods of art, this airy former train station is the perfect place to come and get inspired.
