From what I can see this looks like DIN Condensed http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/paratype/din-condensed/

The Paratype version only has two weights--FF DIN gives you a more complete family, though your sample is too small to know if it's an exact match:

Univers 39, 47, 48, 49, 57, 58, 59, and 67.

Thank you kthomps , donshottype et riccard0 for the help !
It's Univers indeed :) and DIN is really close

Riccardo and Electrolyze, I hate to burst your bubbles, but the capital M in Univers has a center stroke that touches the baseline. The M in the sample has a center stroke that stops above the baseline by a considerable distance.

Also, the leg of the R in Univers is curved/convex. The leg of the R in the sample is straight.

The sample may be to too small to definitively identify, but it is not Univers.

Kevin, you're right, of course. I was blinded by the |Q| and the fact that the app contains 8 fonts named U47, U48, U49, U57, U58, U59, U67, and Uv39, which seem to nicely match Univers' styles and weights.
It could be a customisation, I suppose.

Even after intense looking (better samples here or here), can't see anything else than various weights and styles of DIN (Condensed, Light, Bold...). If you still doubt, try asking Jeremy Perrot-Minot.

The Musée d'orsay has a budget sufficient to commission its own versions of Din, and this is also a possibility. The French government does not skimp on spending for culture. So for the larger fonts I would go with DIN Condensed, perhaps customized.
Done

My apologies. I mistakenly thought that the pictures were actually from Musée d’Orsay, but I see, thanks to the link Ryuk provided, that they’re from a “Personal project of a responsive web site for The Orsay Museum”.

I got a message from Jeremy Perrot-Minot. He said that he use "Din Bold" & "Din condensed light"
