What to expect

The Musée d’Orsay is an architectural marvel as well as a collection of the world’s most famous painters from Monet and Renoir to Degas and Van Gogh. Skip the lines with our guides on and join our guided museum tour! Our charming young guides will lead you through this repurposed, century-old train station and explore the artistic evolutions that led to the Impressionists and their vibrant, colorful works.

From Manet’s scandalous “Luncheon on the Grass” to Renoir’s “Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette,” our engaging guides will discuss the Impressionists and their techniques. We’ll discuss those who came right before them like Millet and “The Gleaners” as well as their legacy carried on by the likes of Van Gogh, as visible in his “Bedroom in Arles.” And of course, we’ll check out works by Monet himself, including his famous poppies. Think windmills, lily pads, and ballerinas.

Highlights generally include: (if the artwork is not on loan or being restored etc.)

  • Manet’s Luncheon on the Grass
  • Renoir’s Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette
  • Monet’s Poppy Field and Waterlilies
  • Van Gogh’s Bedroom in Arles
  • Degas’s Ballerinas
