The best museum in the world ?

You may disagree, but TripAdvisor just named the Musée d’Orsay in Paris the “Best Museum in the World” for 2018. Housed in a stunning turn-of-the-century former railway terminal, this riverside gem hosts an eye-popping collection of European art works dating from 1848 to 1914. The heart of the collection is an enormous cache of Impressionist, post-Impressionist, and Art Nouveau paintings and sculptures. It’s worth a visit to see works by Manet, Renoir, Degas, Cézanne, and Van Gogh.

I would pay just to spend time inside of the beautifully restored railway station. In fact, I once made a return flight to Paris just to visit the d’Orsay when it had been closed due to a strike by museum security staff. Clearly, planning ahead is key to seeing the “best museum in the world”. If your are going, be sure to purchase an open dated ticket online to avoid the box office queues and remember that the museum is closed on Mondays.

    Yes, I know it, but the best – who knows. There are many museums in our World, small and big, special museums which do not exist elsewhere. For example, in Finland a unique museum in the World:

    International coffee cup museum

    Of course, it is not the best, but unique.

    Have a wonderful day!
