The most impressionant Impressionist Museum. Ever.
CLOSED ON MONDAYS!!!
It’s rated number one on Trip Advisor for a reason. The Orsay Museum is famously known for having that painting that Mr Bean dessecrates while trying to clean it up of that old lady sitting on a rocking chair. It’s like the forefathers of the Ecce Homo lady in Spain.
That painting is called Whistler’s mom, but there’s lots of much cooler stuff there: Rodin’s thinker, lots of Van Gogh and some pretty neat sculptures along the main hall.
It was a train station before, which makes the building in itself pretty impressive, so make sure to appreciate that.
This museum is mainly impressionist (Van Gogh, Gauguin, Monet, Manet, etc.) but you’ll find lots of other itneresting stuff.
Make sure not to miss it.
Orsay Museum, closed on Mondays. Be there before 9h15 am or after 3 pm.
