In Paris there is an old train station that was built on the occasion of the Universal Exhibition of 1890, where a palace that had been destroyed by fire had been built before. It is a strange place, because for years that people there no longer run with their luggage from one side to the other, and the hustle has become silent and quiet walks. Orsay station is today the Orsay's Museum, one of the most interesting of all Paris, since it has an important background of paintings of the nineteenth century and also has one of the most important impressionist painting collections in the world. Therefore, it is an essential visit in the French capital.

The closest metro stops are the National Assembly and of Solférino (both of line 12). However, the closest stop is that of the train RER Orsay Museum that stops at the same door. The museum opens on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 9.30 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Thursdays from 9.30 a.m. to 9.45 p.m. On Mondays, the museum closes its doors.

Admission to the Musée d'Orsay costs € 12, although there are many discounts. The Thursday from 6 pm, a reduced price is paid: € 9.5, same as during the week after 4.30pm. Residents in the European Union under 25 have free access, in the same way as visitors with disabilities. Further, the first Sunday of the month admission is also free.
