Musee d'Orsay, Paris

The Musee d'Orsay is a museum in PMusee d'Orsay, Parisaris, France, on the left bank of the Seine, housed in the former railway station, the Gare d'Orsay, an impressive Beaux-Arts edifice built between 1898 and 1900. It holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1915, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography, and is probably best known for its extensive collection of impressionist masterpieces by such painters such as Monet, Degas, Renoir, and Cezanne. Many of these works were held at the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume prior to the museum's opening in 1986.

The Musee d'Orsay, like the Musee Hebert, is a national museum under the authority of the Ministry of Culture. These two museums are managed by the Musee d'Orsay public establishment.
