About Orsay museum

The Musée d’Orsay is located in the heart of Paris, in one of the most coveted and elegant neighborhoods of the Left Bank: Saint-Germain-des-Prés. Its magnificent structure and great dial stand along the Seine River, the vertebral column of the city. Facing the great river, the Tuileries Gardens, and the Louvre — once the French king’s residence in the 14th century and now home to one of the biggest art collections in the world — the Musée d’Orsay situates itself as a significant and emblematic monument in the French capital.

Orsay’s collection is made up of work from the Louvre, the Musée de Jeu de Paume, the Musée du Luxembourg, and the Centre Pompidou and retraces art history from 1848 to 1914. Most notably, its halls are home to the richest impressionist collection in the world, which allows us to follow this important European artistic movement from its origins to its fulfillment at the end of the 19th century.

If the Louvre intimidates you due to the immensity of its site and numerous collections, then the Orsay museum is a splendid alternative. Its intimate yet extensive collection will bring you directly into the heart of one of France’s most beloved eras. Orsay’s fascinating architecture, featuring a magnificent gilded clock at its top and a glass nave illuminating the central sculpture gallery, provides an unforgettable experience during your stay in Paris.

Olga, the enthusiastic Delicious Paris founder, will meet you outside Orsay museum (1 Rue de la Légion d’Honneur, 75007 Paris), at the Rhinoceros statue.
