The Musee d'Orsay is a museum in Paris, situated on the left bank of the River Seine. It holds mainly French art from 1848 to 1914: paintings, sculptures, furniture, objets d'art and photography.
The building was originally a railway station, built in 1900 by Victor Laloux, and served as a terminus for the Paris-Orleans railway. It was known as Gare d'Orsay. It closed in 1939, was classed as a historical monument in 1978, and re-opened as a museum in December 1986, bringing together collections from the Louvre, the Musee du Jeu de Paume and the Musee National d'Art Moderne at the Centre Georges Pompidou. along the banks of the Seine : The Eiffel tower and the Trocadero
