Musee d’Orsay

While the Louvre remains, unquestionably, the greatest museum in France, the Musee d'Orsay is a place dedicated to French art. It is where celebrated paintings by Monet, Van Gogh, Renoir, Cezanne and Degas, to name a few of the greats, have found a home.

Railway station to famed museum

The museum resides in what was Gare d’Orsay, a railway station that was all but set to be demolished until it was listed as a historic monument, thanks to its majestic architecture and splendid décor. In 1986, the museum opened its doors to Paris and on display was the world’s largest collection of Impressionist masterpieces.

The museum also houses sculptures, decorative arts and photography.

A unique experience

Soak in the essence of Paris as you savor classic French cuisine and gaze out through large bay windows that open to the Seine at Restaurant du Musee d’Orsay. Modern furnishings blend elegantly with antique décor to make your meal a treasured memory. After all, it’s not every day that you get to dine in a historical monument.
