Calling all art lovers! Due to the coronavirus pandemic spreading this late February in France, the musée d'Orsay has announced on Twitter to regulate entries starting March 10, 2020. They added that this regulation of visitor numbers could lead to a longer waiting time at the entrance of the museum. A decision made in accordance with the ban of any public gathering of over 1000 people inside and outside decreed by the French government.

But it doesn’t prevent us from discover the museum’s permanent collections and the magnificent temporary exhibitions currently running. Let’s discover the super The Land Of Monsters exhibition with the kids around works by Léopold Chauveau. Also enjoy the different entertainments for kids focusing on the exhibit, naming a storytelling area, a drawing workshop on touch-on table on which kids can draw monsters as beautiful as possible.
And for those who are more into painting and contemporary history, head to the James Tissot exhibition running from March 24, 2020 at the Musée d’Orsay. A dive into the daily life of the British upper society at the Victorian era. A wonderful exhibition to discover!
