Musée d'Orsay

Paris, France
Kirker Holidays

Musée d’Orsay has been brilliantly converted from the former Gare d’Orsay Station, together with the adjoining hotel, and houses 2,300 works of art mainly from the 19th and 20th centuries – half of which are on permanent display – paintings, sculptures, furniture, photographs and a wonderful model of the Paris Opera House. The paintings include a breathtaking collection of Impressionist works formerly displayed at the Jeu de Paume. We recommend that you take the lift to the top floor and work your way down.

The Paris Museum Pass, included with your travel documents, gives free admission to the museum, along with around 70 museums and monuments in Paris and the surrounding area, with an unlimited number of visits without the need to queue. It is valid for 48 hours from the first time of use. Passes for a longer duration are also available if you think you will need them - please contact the Kirker Concierge or book locally. Please note that all museums are FREE on the first Sunday of each month – but expect much longer queues. Exhibitions are normally included, but in the event of a particularly popular temporary exhibition it may be necessary to pre-book a timed entrance before you visit.

Located at 1 Rue de la Légion d'Honneur, you can walk to the museum from many hotels on the Left Bank, or take the RER to Musée d'Orsay or Métro to Solférino. Open 09:30 – 18:00, till 21:45 on Thursday. Closed Mondays.
