What to expect

The Orsay Museum houses the world’s most complete collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art. Don't miss masterpieces by Manet, Monet, Renoir and Van Gogh! Follow your guide on a 2-hour tour through this tumultuous period in French culture and discover amazing masterpieces.

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. You may be familiar with some of the masterpieces on display, such as Monet’s Water Lilies or Van Gogh’s Starry Night; this will be an opportunity to examine up close the startling blend of colors that go into seemingly calm compositions.

After your guide has pointed out all the highlights, you can return to the galleries on your own if you wish, to further explore the collection or perhaps visit a special exhibition.
