Orson's MUSEE d'ORSAY!
Product Rating: Pros: The greatest single collection of Impressionist Art, housed in a magnificent old railway station.
Cons: Much smaller than the Louvre but still too much to appreciate in one visit.
The Bottom Line: THE MUSEE D'ORSAY shows what can be done with a seemingly superannuated structure. It was well worth the efforts of all those who saved it.
Full Review: Musée d-Orsay
Once there was an old railway station. Built in 1900, the Gare d'Orsay was the Grand Central Station of Paris, crossroads of Europe before the Wars changed everything. It was a monolithic structure, built on numerous levels serving Central Paris for travelers coming into the City or moving, by other means, to the great directional stations, such as the Gare du Nord. Following World War II, time and traffic caused the old station to fall into disuse.
