Most visited in Paris
The 1900 Gare d’Orsay, which became the Musée d’Orsay in 1986, is dedicated to Western art from 1848 to 1914. The transformation into a museum was the initiative of former French President Valéry Giscard d’Estaing; after his death in 2020, his name was added to the name of the museum. The most visited part is the exceptional collection of impressionist and post impressionist paintings. Including temporary exhibitions, 3.5 million visitors came in 2019.
