It's difficult to imagine a former railway station being turned into a museum and storing the heritage of world painting. Entrance into the magnificent building is guarded by impressive statues, such as a rhinoceros or an elephant measuring 3 meters in height.
You will learn about the legend of this tremendous Museum and the history of major works by exceptional artists from your guide. You will definitely enjoy being in this amazing place, marveling at the rich collection of talented impressionists, and exploring one of the most marvellous pages of the City of Light’s history.
Have an incredible experience getting to know impressionism, from which you can draw enlightenment and reflection. The Musée d'Orsay was founded by an artists' group at the end of the nineteenth century, and after much criticism, it eventually came to have a strong influence on the art of the time.
