A museum with a view

A visit to the Musée d'Orsay - housed in the former Gare d'Orsay, an impressive Beaux-Arts railway station built between 1898 and 1900 - transports me straight in to the movie Hugo Cabret. Orphan, clock keeper, and thief, Hugo lives in the walls of a busy Paris train station, where his survival depends on secrets and anonymity. Here are a few impressions:

Peeking through to the Louvre

I wonder if Hugo has repaired this clock?

Spotting the Sacré Coeur on the horizon

Paris' Ferris Wheel next to the exclusive Hotel Crillon

The Tuileries Gardens with the Sarcé Coeur in the background

Contemplating the Louvre

I wonder who she is?

  1. I loved the Musee D'Orsay, just so different! And that window was all I photographed as well (we couldn't take photos inside but I sneaked that one).
