Musee’ d’Orsay

I went to Musee’ d’Orsay today! I walked past the Louvre’, past the orangery and along the River Seine, all the way to the Grand Palais (Grand Palace), walking just a tad bit too far, past my chosen destination. I was so glad I did though, for the palace was absolutely beautiful. It was just that magnificent architecture all over again which I love so much.

After taking photos of the palace I walked across a bridge over the river and started walking back the way I came except on the side of the river the museum would be on. At last, just as the rain was starting to fall, I was there!

Inside the museum I saw sculptures, fancy furniture, pottery and of course the paintings! I saw Impressionist, Experimental and many other types of paintings. I even saw works by Pablo Picasso and Vincent Van Gogh among many other famous artists! There was also a very cool clock inside the museum which you could look through to the rainy world outside. This reminded me of the movie “Hugo”.

I went on all five floors of the museum, walking up and down the stairs to go to different levels although there was a lift there too. I took in as much of the museum as I could before it closed. When it closed many happy and satisfied museum-goers like me walked out its doors, content with our excellent experience there.
