Ornamental Railway Clock, Musee d’Orsay, France Photograph by Jan Kranendonk, 2007
Once a railway station, the Musee d’Orsay has an unusual historical background. Can you guess which fact is false?
a. The station hosted the 87th Prime Minister of France, Georges Leygues’, lavish wedding
b. The station’s short platforms became unsuitable for longer trains
c. Later adapted by Orson Welles, The Trial, was filmed here
d. After the station’s abandonment, it was used as a reception center for prisoners of WWII
Located in the center of Paris on the banks of the Seine, opposite the Tuileries Gardens, the Musee d’Orsay was installed in the former Orsay railway station. In operation from 1900-1939, the station was forced to close its doors as its platforms became too short for modern, longer trains that appeared with the progressive electrification of the railroads. Before being converted into a museum, it served multiple purposes; it was used as a mailing center for sending packages to prisoners of war during the Second World War, then those same prisoners were welcomed there on their returning home after the Liberation. It was also used as a set for several films, such as Kafka's The Trial adapted by Orson Welles, and as a haven for the Renaud-Barrault Theatre Company.
