Overview

Spend two hours immersing yourself in the vibrant world of Impressionism on this Musée d’Orsay Tour featuring skip-the-line tickets and a local art-enthusiast guide. Built in an old train station, the Orsay Museum is both an architectural masterpiece, and home to the finest collection of paintings in the world from the 19th-century's most influential artistic movement, Impressionism.

You'll meet your guide outside the Museum and use skip-the-line Musée d’Orsay tickets to stroll right into the central atrium. Originally designed as a train station, the beaux-arts vaulted ceiling is a work of art in and of itself, the perfect introduction to two hours of art appreciation. 

Your Musée d'Orsay Tour is all about the Impressionists and how a radical movement of young painters upended the strict art establishment of the 19th century, ushering in a new era of colour, light and self-expression. You'll learn the whole story from your guide as you see works like Van Gogh’s Self Portrait and Starry Night Over the Rhone, Manet’s revolutionary Olympia and Luncheon on the Grass, Monet's Water Lilies, and many other works by the artists who changed the very concept of what a painting can achieve. 

The Musée d’Orsay’s enormous collection can be overwhelming for even the most dedicated art fan. Your expert guide is on hand to select the highlights and help you understand their meaning and context with informed but accessible stories and anecdotes. Whether you're an art buff or have never set foot in a museum, by the end of this Musée d'Orsay Tour, you’ll have a deep appreciation for the impact that the Impressionists had on the way we all see the world.
