Last Thursday, November 7th, the students had yet another opportunity to explore a building that they read about in the history class here. They visited Musée d’Orsay, a train station turned museum. The students were assigned to write their own review of the building. They truly got to understand the building in their own way.

 

A big space with a glass ceiling and sculptures in the middle passageway.

The main corridor of Musée d’Orsay was astounding with its sculptures and unique spaces.

A passageway with white structural members and windows letting light into the space.

The interiors of the museum are astounding around every corner. Even the passageways are beautiful.
