Musee d'Orsay celebrates 30 years

The Musee d'Orsay will be celebrating 30 years and as a gift, the museum is free on these dates:
Friday, 2 Decembre 2017 through Sunday, 4 Decembre 2017.
Entrance is via Porte C, around the corner from the regular admission lines. No tickets necessary.

Attention: The museum will close on Friday at 19h00 - allow 15 minutes to clear out.
The museum will close on Sunday at 18h00 - allow 15 minutes to clear out.

I expect that a lot of people will be coming to the museum, so I'd recommend getting in line early.

I once got lucky and happened to be there for free admission Sunday. It's a nice thank you for a free admission weekend. This reminds me that I should re-visit when I am in Paris again. I love d'Orsay.

Wow. 30 years. I can remember going shortly after it opened and being so impressed with the re-purpose of the station. I loved it.

The last time we visited, a couple of years ago, it was a rainy day, the museum was packed and not very enjoyable as a result. There's no way I'd visit on a free admission day.
