MUSEE D'ORSAY. OrBuilt in 1900, the D'Orsay was a train station. But, as trains became longer, by 1939 the platforms were too short. In 1986 the station's renovation into a museum was complete. It houses a huge collection of Impressionism on the fourth floor. Usually, I skip the other floors and rush to the Impressionists. However, there are treasures throughout.

(These photos were taken when you could take photos in the museum. On my most recent trip, that was no longer allowed.)
