Originally a beaux-arts train station built at the end of the 19th century, the Musée d’Orsay is now home to a stunning array of world-famous Impressionist masterpieces - the largest collection in the world! Discover why it is considered the favourite museum of both Parisians and visitors during this 2 hour tour, as your expert guide leads you on an intimate small group tour through this spectacular museum.
Bypass the often long lines and enjoy this magnificent museum with a small group of seven people or fewer and an expert local guide, who will take you back in time through iconic paintings such as Monet’s Water Lilies or Toulouse Lautrec’s Starry Night over the Rhone. See masterpieces by Manet, Renoir, Cézanne and Rodin, learn about the painters’ colorful lives - many of them lived and painted in Paris - and how the works you are looking at today radically transformed the course of art. As the world changed around them, these artists’ progressive approach to life and art, their new techniques, expressive brushstrokes and vivid colors caused a scandal. Recognized around the world today, these dazzling works of art are not to be missed.
This small group tour allows for an intimate and relaxed visit, and your guide will ensure you don't miss a thing. After the tour you are free to remain in the museum at your leisure, to continue exploring for as long as you wish.
