Seeing Icons in Musee D’Orsay

Taylor Van Slett here-

Paris is the most incredible city full of music, culture, and art. So many famous masterpieces are housed in the many museums in the city, but Musee D’Orsay is just magical. Walking in from the back entrance toward the main part of the museum, the sheer size of this beautifully preserved train station catches you off guard.

The most beautiful statues await you in the main walkway, and if you turn around right when you get in you can get a pretty sweet look at the amazing gold clock that watches over the museum.

Then, just when you think you’ve seen the most beautiful part of the museum, you get into the gallery rooms to fin your favorite iconic paintings that were taught to you through years of art history. (Needless to say, I was geeking out!) Definitely a must see if you’re going to be in Paris!

Time to get to sleep, it’s our first real day of classes tomorrow!

Bon nuit!
