This looks like a model to me! It's actually a little picture opportunity perch high inside the museum. This is a brilliant use of space.

Musee d'Orsay is an old train station. Brilliant. by waxpancake.

This first one is a favorite of mine and she's huge. A person of average height would probably find themselves eye to eye with the dolphin.

Musee d'Orsay- this is enormous! by waxpancake.
