“My dear friend, your train station looks like a Palace of Fine Arts while our Palace of Fine Arts looks like a train station” is what the architect Victor Laloux heard in 1900 when his spectacular Orsay station was inaugurated in the heart of Paris. Today this wonderful space is home to the Musée d’Orsay, a dazzling museum dedicated to the art of the second half of the 19th century, one of the most exciting and daring periods in artistic history. Here you will not only see some of the most iconic masterpieces of this period, you will also discover how the Impressionist movement erupted into life and changed the face of the art world forever.
