Museum d'Orsay History

It's hard to believe this light-filled collection of art was once a train station.

Musee D'Orsay, ParisThe station was built by Victor Laloux and inaugurated in 1900 for that year's Universal Exhibition. After having received the first electric trains in France, the station was closed in 1939, a victim of progress as newer bigger stations were built.

It was registered as a listed and protected building in 1978. The museum was opened in December 1986 and was dedicated to all artistic production from 1848 to 1914. Paintings, pastels, sculptures, furniture and objets d'art, photography and documentary objects reflect the richness and diversity of this era.
