Residing in a former rail station alongside the stunning River Seine, the Musée d’Orsay is home to many noteworthy paintings, sculptures and photography pieces from the short-lived artistic flourish between 1848 -1915. Works found in the museum include those of famous Parisian residents such as Cézanne, Degas, Monet, Renoir, and Van Gogh, just to name a few. Complete with a glass-domed roof, ceiling rosettes and a glass walkway, this architectural delight boasts three floors and covers a range of artistic themes, techniques and styles. Once a hub for rail transport, the Orsay now transports guests back in time, all the way to one of the most enchanting and prominent periods in art history.

    Our tips for Orsay Museum
    • Get prepped. As well as the permanent collections, the museum hosts numerous temporary exhibitions and special events throughout the year. Concerts, film screenings and art-inspired shows are just the tip of the iceberg, so be sure to plan your visit in advance to make the most of it!
    • Walk the line. The Musée d’Orsay has four different entrances, so be sure to make sure you're queuing at the right entrance for your ticket! If you're a member or have already got a ticket (with isango!, of course), entrance C is for you.
    • Find your focus. While only small compared to the Louvre, the Musee d’Orsay’s permanent collection holds countless artistic gems. Before your arrival, plan out what you’d most like to see, and go from there.
