About this experience
You will immediately understand why the Musée d’Orsay has consistently rated as the preferred museum of Parisians themselves. Built over 100 years ago as a train station designed to international visitors to the World’s Fair, the beaux-arts construction now displays the best art from that time, making it an imperative visit during your stay in the capital of France. Your friendly and qualified guide will be eager to share their artistic passion with you. They will meet you right in front of the museum, and your group will skip any long lines thanks to our special fast-track access!
Believe it or not, the Impressionists’ quiet scenes of rural and city life were thought utterly shocking when they were painted! The vivid colors and expressive brushstrokes really made a number on the foundations of the artistic establishment.
Your guide will bring to life the intense temperaments of the painters, describing how each artist ventured to explore new territory and to pursue success without give-and-take. Traveling back in time, you’ll learn how these works revolutionized the art world forever. You may be familiar with some of the masterpieces on exhibition, such as Monet’s Water Lilies or Van Gogh’s Starry Night over the Rhone; this will be an occasion to examine up close the impressive blend of colors that go into apparently serene compositions. Your guide will take you to the most iconic and influential works in the museum. After your tour you are free to stay inside the museum and continue your visit.
