Museums of Paris

 One of our favorite activities in Paris is visiting the museums, returning to old favorites and finding new ones along the way.  Some of our favorites are Musée d'Orsay (in the old train station), Musée de l'Orangerie (Jardin des Tuileries. Place de la Concord), Musée Marmottan Monet (the largest collection of works of Monet), Musée Jacquemart-André (on Boulevard Haussmann), Foundation Louis Vuitton (in the Bois de Boulogne) and, of course, the current exhibitions at the Grand Palais and Petit Palais (on Avenue des Champs-Élysées).

In no particular order, here are a few great works from some of our favorite museums.
