Crepes in Paris | Honeysuckle Life

Does it count as tradition if you’ve only done it twice? If so, we have a tradition that involves the steps of the Musée d’Orsay and a sweet treat and latte from a nearby shop or bakery. Stuffed full of sugar, we head into the museum to view Monet after Delacroix after Manet. Not too shabby for an afternoon’s work.

The Musée d’Orsay is open Tuesday to Sunday from 9:30am to 6:00pm (9:45pm on Thursdays). Admission is €11. Photos are not permitted but this rule is not strictly enforced, unlike most other museums (ahem, I’m talking about you Guggenheim!). To create your own little world, put in headphones with a favorite playlist and cruise through the crowds. I recommend stopping to enjoy the views from the museum windows. They include some of Paris’ most famous sites, including the Louvre and Sacré Coeur.

    I would say that twice definitely counts as a tradition. The Museum looks utterly fascinating!
