Musée D'Orsay

For those of you who don't know, the "musée d'Orsay" was actually a railway station built near 1900. The building was converted into a museum for 19th century art in 1986. The artistry inside fit between the time periods of both the artwork periods of the Louvre and the Pompidou Centre.
This is where you will find breath-taking art work by Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Cézanne, Degas, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Seurat and many others.
