Rediscover the Musee d’Orsay with Korean Air

This sponsorship of audio guides at the Musee d’Orsay adds to the agreements already in place at three other world renowned museums – the Musee du Louvre also in Paris, the British Museum in London and the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.

HONG KONG – The Musee d’Orsay in Paris is to introduce its first-ever Korean language audio guide thanks to Korean Air. Korean visitors to the museum will be able to enjoy the museum’s world-renowned art collection with commentaries in their mother tongue.
 
On October 24, Korean Air’s Managing Vice President Yong-Chul Kim and the Musee d’Orsay’s President Guy Cogeval have gathered in the Museum’s ‘Le Salon du President’ to sign an agreement confirming the airline’s sponsorship and development of the Museum’s Korean-language program, for the first half of 2015. 
 
This sponsorship of audio guides at the Musee d’Orsay adds to the agreements already in place at three other world renowned museums – the Musee du Louvre also in Paris, the British Museum in London and the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.
 
In addition to the Musee d’Orsay’s audio guide, which features commentary about over three hundred masterpieces, the museum will develop and launch a guide map and catalogue in Korean.
 
Currently, the museum’s audio guide is available in nine languages other than Korean, including English, French, German, Chinese and Japanese, which has caused frustration for some Korean visitors. But such inconveniences will soon be mitigated with the Museum’s launch of the Korean-language guide program thanks to support from Korean Air.
 
The collections of the Musee d’Orsay, housed in a former train station, consist of paintings and sculptures from 1848 to 1914 as well as decorative arts and important collections of drawings and photographs. The most famous artists represented in the museum, range from Courbet and Millet to Gauguin and Van Gogh, alongside the Impressionists, Post-Impressionists and Symbolists. The museum has been constantly reinventing itself across the board under the headline, ‘Nouvel Orsay’, with the openings of new galleries and amenities designed by world renowned architects and artists.
 
As a leading global carrier, Korean Air is committed to partnerships with the world’s prestigious museums and developing and contributing to global cultural understanding.
