The Orsay Museum, the famous museum next to the Louvre museum in Paris.
The Musée d'Orsay is a railway Orsay station that was built in time for the 1900 Paris Expo.
In 1939 it became an abandoned station, but then in 1986 it opened as a Musée d'Orsay using the station building.
Therefore, the inside of the hall remains the atmosphere of the station's premises, making it an unusual museum.
Also the exterior is one of the sightseeing spots with the exterior of the station building at the time as well as the interior.
You can see the whole view from the opposite bank of the Seine, you can also take a ship to and from the Seine river.
In addition, we can shoot the Eiffel Tower with us, so let's challenge here as well.
The secret of the popularity of the Musée d'Orsay is the fact that the works of famous artists such as Monet, Renoir and Van Gogh are exhibited.
Even people who are not interested in art may have paintings that have been seen.
For that reason the admission is quite crowded.
Of course, there are factors of security check, but let's act with time in time!
