The history of the Musée d´Orsay is quite unusual.  In the centre of Paris on the banks of the Seine, opposite the Tuileries Gardens, the museum was installed in the former Orsay railway station, built for the Universal Exhibition of 1900.  The building itself can be classed as the first "work of art" in the Musee d'Orsay, which displays collections of art from the period 1848 to 1914.

Musée du Louvre

Formerly a royal palace, the Louvre has embraced the history of France for eight centuries.  Intended as a universal museum since its inception in 1793, its collections - among the finest in the world - span several thousands of years and a territory that extends from America to the confines of Asia.  Divided among eight departments, these collections feature works admired throughout the globe, including the Mona Lisa, the Winged Victory of Samothrace, and the Venus de Milo.  With nearly ten million visitors in 2012, the Louvre is the world’s most visited museum.

Théâtre des Champs-Elysées

Opened in the spring of 1913, the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées is without doubt one of the most beautiful performance venues in Paris.  The building houses three stages - Le Grand Théâtre (the main theatre) is home to opera, dance, symphony concerts and recitals, while the more intimate settings of La Comédie and Le Studio host repertory theatre.
