From 1900 to 1939, the place was ... a train station! It was indeed the head of the southwestern French railroad network. In the 80s decision was made to turn the train station, which had become too short for modern trains into a museum. The place would be mainly devoted to Impressionism paintings and scuptures. The Orsay museum opened its doors on 1st December 1986..
