What to Expect
Enter the stunning Beaux Arts building of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris and discover a treasure chest of French art.
Housed in a former railway station, the museum contains one of the world’s best collections of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art. Skip the long lines, and enjoy expert commentary from a guide who will introduce you not only to the masterpieces but to the masters that created them.
Learn about a unique period of art history, and how it was harshly criticized in its time. See how painters, such as Monet, radically changed the way we view the world. Many of the museum’s most famous works are by Paris-based artists, and depict scenes throughout France, providing a pictorial history of the nation.
Marvel at Van Gogh’s “Starry Night over the Rhône,” and Renoir’s masterpiece “Dance at Le Moulin de la Galette,” a depiction of a typical Sunday afternoon in the Paris district of Montmarte. Discover highlights by Cezanne, Degas, Manet, and much more.
