Musée d’Orsay

"Les beaux-arts sont la connaissance rendue visible." Gustave Courbet

The musée d’Orsay is a must-do in Paris if you are in Paris for a short time.

The museum gathers the largest collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings in the world : there are more than 3,450, masterpieces of painting and Sculpture by the greatest artist. This is really magnificent!

Do you know those pieces of art? The Lunch on the Grass and the Olympia by Edouard Manet, The Origin of the World by Gustave Courbet, or La Petite Danseuse by Edgar Degas. Or those artists? Paul Cézanne, Claude Monet, Auguste Renoir

Because they are in this museum!  And it is really well organized: the lights, the themes. You won’t be lost there! Everything is made to be very didactic. If you are a novice you will learn a lot about art! And if you are an expert, you will see very original angles to know better your idols.

Furthermore, the museum offers temporary exhibitions periodically in order to illuminate the work of an artist or to highlight a merchant or a question of art history.

Plus, there is an auditorium that hosts various events, concerts, cinema, shadow theater, conferences, and symposiums.

There are many activities to do with kids so it is great.

If you are looking for a nice romantic activity with or without kids, this is a great place to begin with. This museum is awesome and we all love to go there once a day. It is like a « typical » museum to go in ? We can remember that art is not only instagram ! And to enhance our culture!
Indeed the museum is located on the 7th arrondissement, in front of the Seine. You will see the « Pont des Arts » or the bouquinistes just near it. Then you will be very well placed to visit the Latin corner and so on.

Careful of the queues, try to book your tickets in advance at their websites. If it is not too late !

Have a good visit ?
