The museum is located within the old Orsay railway station, which was constructed for the 1900 world's fair. It became a mailing room during World War Two and setpiece for Orson Welles' The Trial. The building was declared an historical monument in 1978 before becoming a museum of art in the 1980's.
The museum is home to art created between 1848-1914, and began its collection with donations from three principal institutions; the Louvre, Musée du Jeu de Paume, and National Museum of Modern Art, all of whom could no longer hold artists from the time.
