Musee d’Orsay Clock

A couple snapshots of the beautiful beaux-arts gallery, the Musee d’Orsay. Orsay features an impressive collection of impressionist and post-impressionist masterpieces in addition to a variety of sculptures, furniture and photography.

My favorite part of the visit is the museum itself, which was once the Orsay railway station. It’s quite surprising how a train station could be reshaped into a gallery for art – but maybe that’s yet another sign of how beautiful Paris is architecturally, that anything can be re-purposed!

If you visit, make sure you climb all the way to the top for a unique view of the rooftop clocks!

Pst – did you know you can get into the Musee d’Orsay for free with the Paris Pass? It includes 60+ museums/attractions as well as unlimited metro, bus and tram rides. Well worth it!

Lastly, be sure to visit Paris with travel insurance. Whether you get injured and need to be hospitalized, or your phone gets stolen, or an injury forces you to cancel all or part of your vacation, travel insurance will help when you need it most. I use and recommend World Nomads travel insurance.
