We hopped back on the Big Bus Tour to go to Museum D’Orsay.
Museum D’Orsay is housed in a former train station, Gare d’Orsay.
Museum d’Orsay holds French art, including paintings, sculpture, furniture and photography dating from 1848 to 1915.
Unfortunately, no photography is allowed. So, no photos of the exhibition.
Musee d’Orsay clock in the main hall.
When we were there, there was a special exhibition on Van Gogh’s suicide. The queue was long but a moving one.
The grand clock, looking out from inside the building.
View of the Seine River from the roof top of the museum.

Fremlet’s Elephant statue, also outside the museum.
There are more statues outside the museum. The above are The Six Continents; female sculptures representing the different continents.
We decided to head back to the hotel after visiting the Museum D’Orsay.
On the way back, we stopped by a Monoprix near Montparnesse. We bought two Croissants for Euro1.43 for snacking.
The croissant was filled with chocolate and topped with nuts.
