After Browsing The Masterpieces, Be Your Own Work Of Art At The Musée D’Orsay Clock

Inspired to make your own art after browsing the work of Monet, Renoir and Cézanne at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris? Head to the museum’s number one photo op: a giant clock window facing the Seine.

There are 23 Monets in the museum and the building itself is stunning. So to make your visit a little more manageable, stick to observing the art while you roam the floors of the collections and save the photos for later.

After you’ve soaked in the pre-, post- and Impressionist paintings, continue to the upper floors. You’ll find some great views overlooking the museum and the Instagram-famous clocks.

One clock is inside a restaurant, but the other is prime for photo shoots. You can actually see the Louvre through the clock. It’s just across the river. On a clear day, you can even see all the way to the Sacre Couer in Montmartre.

Musée d’Orsay is open from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day except on Monday, so you can begin your perusal of the art while the sun is shining brightly and get to the clock photo spot when the sun is lower in the sky. (The light is better, trust us.)
