Musée d’Orsay – The Clock
The huge clock on the top floor of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris is one of its most interesting fixtures. It is reminiscent of the days when the museum was a railway station and not yet a museum. Later it was converted into a theatre in the 1970s, and later on (early 1980s) was turned into a museum.
There are two of them, offering different views. Probably the best one is to be found in the cafeteria. July 2020 was the right time for us to visit the museum as it is usually crammed with tourists. This doesn’t means that the museum was empty, however.

This kind of clock always fascinated me. Tank you for posting this and it I get to go near there I will go see it.
It is indeed fascinating. Thanks for your comment.
