DAY 3 – Tuesday

I woke up during the night with a sore throat. I struggled to wake up and my day started a bit later than usual, but I decided to do some museum hunting.

Musée Rodin

I went to Musée Rodin. Although it is a small museum I was glad I took the time to visit it. The Thinker and Gates of Hell in the garden were magnificent.

Even the statues inside were impressive.

Les Invalides

Then I went to the Les Invalides to see Napoleon Bonaparte’s grave.

As I go through all the pamphlets to get some more background history of the museums, I realize why there is so much I missed at this museum… my pamphlet is in French!

According to Wikipedia, Les Invalides is a complex of buildings of military museums and monuments, including a hospital and a retirement home for war veterans. There is also a large church and the burial site for some of France’s war heroes.

Everything is big, bright and gold.

Musée d’Orsay

After that I went to Musée d’Orsay, a beautiful building on the banks of the Seine river… a former railway station.

It was very big and busy and I couldn’t enter everywhere due to exhibitions, but there were paintings, sculptures, furniture and photos.

I had to take the photo of this little car. I thought he would never struggle to find parking.

IMuseum hunting in Paris. French Fridays day 3t was raining the whole time and a bit cold at times.  My nose was running and my head started to throb, so I went back to the hotel quite early to sleep a bit.

Later the evening we went to the Supermaket again and walked through the park.

Do you enjoy walking through museums?
