Travel time again so, with a quick moment of brightness peeking through those clouds, we better get to Musée d’Orsay to avoid the rain. Actually, more than to avoid the rain, Musée d’Orsay is my favourite larger museum in Paris. It’s large enough to spend a substantial amount of enjoyable time, however, not too large, like the one on the other side of the Seine, to be overwhelming for a one day visit.

Just checking the time on my backwards clock. Turns out it was Sacré-Coeur o’clock. I thought the Musée d’Orsay bells would ring out at Sacré-Coeur o’clock. Not only great art here but also great views, like the distant Sacré-Coeur, from the museum’s upper level … from inside and out.

As I mentioned yesterday, there are great Paris views from outside the upper level of Musée d’Orsay. So, here is the ‘not through the clock’ view of Sacré-Coeur from the outside terrace of the museum.

Oh yeah, there is an inside to Musée d’Orsay. Further, I think it was nice of them to put up those red balloons for my visit. The inside is pretty impressive even beyond the art. I almost felt like I was waiting for a train. If Paris ever needs another train station, this looks like it would convert quite easily. That, however, would mean undoing the Gare d’Orsay to Musée d’Orsay conversion that was completed in 1986.

This image has one piece of actual art here at the Musée d’Orsay but I see at least three. There is the practical one because it’s lighting the way, the abstract one embedded in the ceiling that I think is looking at me and, finally, the actual statue.
