Musée d'Orsay - Saint-Germain-des-Prés - 6e Arrondissement


The Luxembourg Museum was the first French museum opened to the public, in 1750. It now hosts two exhibitions a year. These are organized by the Réunion des Musées Nationaux and the Grand Palais. Choice themes are the Renaissance in Europe, the relationship between art and power, as well as the role of Paris as the capital of the arts. Close to the Palace and Luxembourg Gardens, the Museum, owned by the Senate, enjoys an exceptional setting in the heart of the Latin Quarter. Its spaces have been completely redesigned by architect Shigeru Ban to accommodate the Angelina restaurant/tea room and educational workshops of the Museum.
