A Definite “To-Do” (Musee d’Orsay)

Salut! This morning my husband is out running errands. I am at home watching videos about where else? Paris! I found this video on YouTube about the Musée d’Orsay (Orsay Museum). This museum is definitely on my Paris to-do list. If you love Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art as I do, this museum is a must-see. The museum is also a wonderful example of historic preservation adaptive re-use: the Orsay was once a train station. I didn’t see the Musée d’Orsay when I was in Paris in 1974 because it didn’t exist back then. The museum dates from 1986. The train station obviously did exist, having been opened in 1900. I was able to view some of the works in its collection though; at that time (1974) they were housed at the Jeu de Paume in Paris. I am looking forward to seeing these art works again and more!
