From Train Station to Art Repository

Musee d'Orsay

Musée d'Orsay is located in what used to be a bustling train station. In 1939, the train station became a mailing center during World War II and was later renovated to become a movie set. In 1978, the Directorate at the Museum of France decided to turn the station into a museum to accompany the world famous Louvre and National Museum of Art. The Musée d'Orsay officially opened in 1986 and has hosted close to 100 million visitors since. Today, the museum showcases works produced by figures such as Monet, Degas, and Van Gogh.
