Musee d'Orsay

This museum/art gallery is a converted railway building, and features two huge clock faces so you don't miss your connection. Behind one of the clock faces on level five is a restaurant, and behind the other is the book shop.

A special exhibition of the works of Vincent van Gogh had opened the week we visited and the crowds were thick. But there was a little jazz orchestra busking outside providing entertainment as you waited in line.
