The Musée d'Orsay is one of the biggest museums in Paris, France, which holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1915, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography. It is located in the 7th arrondissement on the left bank of the Seine. It is among world`s top ten museums and is considered famous and often visited.
It houses the largest collection of impressionist, post-impressionist and Stile liberty masterpieces in the world. The museum building was originally a railway station, Gare d'Orsay, constructed for the Chemin de Fer de Paris à Orléans and finished in 1900 to the design of three architects, including Victor Laloux. Later, it was extended by the Hôtel Drouot. It was the first all-electric railway station. The railway station was the terminus for the railways of southwestern France until 1939.
In 1970, permission was granted to demolish the station, though the idea was introduced to turn it into a museum, and the plan was accepted by Georges Pompidou. Seven years later, it has been registered as a historic monument. The museum officially opened in 1986 after its restoration.
Address: 1 rue de la Légion d'Honneur, Paris
