Our Insiders' Article

The biggest collection of Impressionist Paintings

The Musee d’Orsay is truly a must see museum. Built as a train station in the 1900 for the Universal Exposition, Orsay Station was transformed into a museum in 1986.
The museum now houses the biggest collection of Impressionist paintings in the world:  Monet, Renoir, Gaugin and many others including the post-impressionist Van Gogh.
Its collection also covers the entire artistic period from 1848 to 1914 (Neoclassicism to Symbolism) which can be seen in 2 to 3 hours.

Make the most of it: 5 floors of fine art

To make the visit more enjoyable, bags must be stored in the cloakroom for free.
Most of the impressionist paintings are located on the 5th floor, but you will find highlights such as Van Gogh, Courbet, Gaugin or sculptor Rodin in other parts of the Musee d’Orsay.

Masterpieces: Van Gogh, Monet, Gaugin and many more

Here are some of the highlights that can be seen at the Musee d’Orsay:
Van Gogh’s Starry Night over the Rhône, painted in 1888 (Level 2 Room 72).
Monet’s Les Coquelicots, painted in 1873 (Level 5, room 30), representing a walk through a poppy field with Monet’s wife Camille, and their son Jean.
Gauguin’s Femmes de Tahiti (Women of Tahiti - level 2, room 70). In 1891, Gauguin live in Tahiti to find freedom and peace of mind.
Courbet’s l’Origine du Monde (The Origin of the World – Room 20), his most controversial painting.

Impressionists: history of an artistic movement

With the invention of portable painting materials, a revolution at the end of the 19th century, some artists decided to experiment with painting outside.
The “outdoorism” movement took the name Impressionism following one of Monet’s paintings. Their first exhibition in 1874 was laughed at by outraged visitors, but eventually gained international notoriety a few years later.
The leaders of the Impressionist movement are all exposed on the 5th floor.

Conclusion: 3 restaurants and a nocturnal visit

If you are hungry, there are 3 restaurants in the Musee d’Orsay: a small cafeteria on the ground floor (Café de l’Ours), a self-service restaurant on the 5th floor (Café Campana) and the high end Au Restaurant, which opened in 1900.
The latter is the perfect place to have dinner on Thursday, when the museum closes at 9:45pm, which give you the opportunity to admire the fabulous collection in a more intimate way.
Musée d’Orsay is part of the must see museums of Paris.
