The history of the museum, of its building is quite unusual. In the centre of Paris on the left bank of the Seine, opposite the Tuileries Gardens, the museum was installed in the former Orsay railway station, built for the Universal Exhibition of the 19th century. So the building itself could be seen as the first “work of art” in the Musee d’Orsay, which displays art collections from the period 1848 – 1914.
