COVID19 Rescheduling Policy: Book With Confidence! No Penalty For Rescheduling As Many Times As Necessary
Join us for our 2.5 hour walking tour through the Musée d’Orsay, the home of some of the world’s most famous paintings, from artists like Renoir, Degas and Van Gogh. We keep our groups small—no more than 8 people per tour—so you’ll have plenty of time to engage with our passionate guides, as they lead you through this repurposed, century-old train station to learn more about the artistic upheavals that helped give rise to the Impressionists and their colorful pieces. If you’d like to avoid the crowds, be sure to check out our Thursday evening tour.
As you explore the museum, you’ll learn about forerunners to the Impressionists like Millet and his masterwork “The Gleaners”; admire Manet’s scandalous “Luncheon on the Grass” and Renoir’s “Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette”; take in the beauty of Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”; and gaze at pieces by Monet, including his famous poppies. We promise you windmills, lily pads, ballerinas and more!
