My two favorite destinations in my two favorite cities.

Musee d"Orsay

Housed in a magnificent old train station. Primarily known for the extensive collection of Impressionist artwork. Kids 18 and under have free admission!
Even the cafe is amazing with wonderful food.

The Museum of Modern Art

Located in the heart of Manhattan. Primarily known for its huge modernist and contemporary art collection. Most expensive museum admission price in NYC, but there is free admission for all on Fridays after 4pm. WONDERFUL cafeteria and cafe, think wine and cheese plate around 5pm after a day of walking this huge museum.

We got a bit turned around at MOMA but loved it. My friend grew up with the child (I think) of one of the photographers that was supposed to be featured when we were there....but his area was undergoing renovation so she didn't get to see his work again. At one time, she could have had boatloads of his work for the asking....if only she had known :)

MOMA is one of our top five stateside, abso-positively! We were not as excited by Musee d"Orsay, maybe because we didn't eat there!

Have a stellar Wednesday Miss Player!

Musee d'Orsay could be one of my favorite museums in the world. I love that place!
