The Museé D'Orsay is housed in the former Gare d'Orsay, and is perhaps best known as "the train station museum with the big clock." In fact, the clock helped inspire movie director Martin Scorsese as he created his version of Paris and Gare Montparnasse for the setting of the movie Hugo.
We started our visit outdoors, on a balcony overlooking the Seine.
The structure peeking out of the homes on the hill in the left side of the photo is Sacre Coeur in Montmartre.
The clock, always swarmed by people. If you squint, you can see Sacre Coeur here, too!
An interior look at the main atrium.
The only photo of art I have inside the museum, they don't allow photos of their galleries. They do have a pretty clunky online database, but really, the best thing to do is walk around and just marvel at the art. The Monet with the woman and child walking through the poppy field? It's here.
