Musée d’Orsay Clock

A tourist getting a shot of Sacré Coeur

The two fifth-floor clocks at the Musée d’Orsay are bold reminders of the Beaux Art building’s former use as a train station, Gare d’Orsay. The clocks offer sweeping, mid-rise (thank you, Haussmann!) views over Paris and make an appealing pit-stop after taking in the unmatched collection of impressionist and post-impressionist art.
