Full description
A visitor will quickly understand why the Musée d’Orsay is consistently ranked the favorite museum of Parisians themselves. Built over 100 years ago as a train station welcoming international visitors to the World’s Fair, the Beaux-Arts structure now displays the best art from that period, making it an essential visit during your stay in the City of Lights. Your expert guide, fully accredited and eager to open your eyes to artistic passion, will meet you right in front of the museum, and your group will bypass any long lines to enter immediately.

Believe it or not, the Impressionists’ peaceful scenes of rural and city life were thought absolutely shocking when they were painted. The vivid colors and expressive brushstrokes truly shook the foundations of the artistic establishment. Your guide will bring to life the turbulent personalities of the painters, describing how each artist dared to explore new territory and to pursue success without compromise. Traveling back in time, you’ll learn how these images and messages changed the art world forever.

Your guide will take you to all the major highlights, and introduce you to many other beautiful masterpieces along the way. Your entrance ticket allows you to stay in the galleries on your own if you wish, to further explore the collection or perhaps take in a special exhibition.
