The Musée d’Orsay – Paris

Not as well known as the Louvre, the Musée d’Orsay in Paris France is just as spectacular and should not be missed. Housed in a former railway station that was built around 1900 the museum sits on the left bank of the Siene river.
The museum holds art created from 1848 to current. Artists such as Van Gogh, Monet, Manet, Cezanne, and countless others are on display here.
