Paris: Orsay Museum

This museum houses the largest collection of Impressionist works in the world, in a turn of the century train station.  It includes works by Degas, Manet, Monet, and Renoir.  I cried when I first saw it as I had admired it for so long and to see it in person was priceless. 

Bal du moulin de la Galette-Renoir
The Luncheon on the Grass-Manet

Le dejeuner sur l'herbe-Monet
The Dance Class-Degas
