Your guide will provide details about each work as well as the artist who created it, bringing each piece to life through expert commentary.

The Musée d’Orsay, and its stunning array of paintings, sculptures, and furniture, is housed inside a striking former railway station and beloved by Parisians and travelers alike. Prepare to experience the best that this museum has to offer, including the largest collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist works on the planet, on this enlightening tour.

Join your guide and small group by the elephant statue outside the museum, then enjoy speedy skip-the-line entry to make the most of your time. Once inside, your guide will introduce you not only to the masterpieces themselves, but also to the masters who created them.

Discover the unique period of Impressionist art and learn how it was harshly criticized in its time, as well as how painters such as Monet radically changed the way we view and depict the world. Your guide will ensure you get close enough to see the individual brushstrokes that are so characteristic of these paintings.

Many of the museum’s most famous works are by French and Paris-based artists, or depict scenes of France. Even though Van Gogh was Dutch, we’ll see his famous Starry Night over the Rhône, a representation of the French city of Arles. 

The Orsay is also home to Renoir’s Impressionist masterpiece Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette, a representation of a typical Sunday afternoon in the Paris’s Montmartre district. Your guide will transport you into Renoir’s 19th-century Paris, where his dancing, drinking Parisians will seemingly come to life before you.

Your tour concludes inside the museum, leaving you free to continue exploring at your leisure.
