What we’ve been up to (in Paris)… Musée d’Orsay

After visiting the D’orsay on the Sunday afternoon , I can say I have a new-found appreciation for the movements that shaped art from 1848-1914. This museum, which used to be a former train station, is home to the world’s largest haul of impressionist and post-impressionist art, and it’s such a precious collection that they’re not letting you take any photos beyond the main hall. But to be fair, this isn’t the type of stuff you want to appreciate via a mobile device; the uniqueness of styles and techniques used by the liked of Gaugin, Van Gogh and Monet has to be seen in reality.  Entry is €11 and the museum is closed on Mondays.  www.musee-orsay.fr/en/ (nearest Metros: Solférino and Assemblée Nationale)
