When Victor Laloux's magnificent station opened in 1900, he was informed, "My dear friend, your train station looks like a Palace of Fine Arts while our Palace of Fine Arts looks like a train station." The Musée d'Orsay occupies this lovely, bright, and airy space at the moment. You will learn how the Impressionist movement burst onto the scene and changed the face of art forever in this exhibition dedicated to the art of the second half of the 19th century, one of the most exciting and daring periods in the history of art.

Step into a world of light and color if you follow your lead. This museum is home to some of the world's greatest and most recognizable works of art, including those by Van Gogh, Monet, Cezanne, and Renoir. As your knowledgeable guide explains not only the works of art but also the incredible changes that were taking place in French society at the time, you'll get a close-up look at the whirling hues of the artistic revolution.

Learn about the mythical artists represented here, many of whom lived and worked in Paris, and their colorful and sometimes unconventional lives. The fact that this visit is also one of your guides' favorites is not surprising! Take advantage of a visit to this remarkable collection that is restricted to just seven people or fewer, allowing for a more intimate and relaxed experience.

Maxime P.
Avi was our tour guide and was so knowledgeable and was a great joy to listen to during this tour. We were a group of 7 and it was just fine listen or ask questions. If we didn’t do that tour we would have passed on so many great facts and stories from some of those beautiful art! We feel that we visited this musée the best way and would recommend Avi as a tour guide! Thank you
