Description

The Musée d'Orsay is the only museum in Paris where the building is part of the exhibition as an example of 19th century architecture. It was the first railway station for electrical trains in Paris, transformed in museum in 1986. On our way trough the galleries we will discover the extreme richness of this century, where neoclassicism, neo-Gothic, romanticism, eclecticism, Arts & Crafts, academism, realism, symbolism and of course impressionism meet on one spot. The 19th century was also the period when industrial and technical development exploded, so we can see the first model of the Liberty Statue as well as the first photographs and movies created by the brothers Lumière.
