Best Museums in Paris: Orsay

Housed in spectacular 1900 Orsay train station, Orsay is the 19th century art Museum of Paris.

Orsay Museum is a must. Its impressionist painting collections are alone worth the trip to Paris.

Combine your visit to Orsay with a visit to Marmottan Museum and Giverny, making up a Monet pilgrimage.
