Know More about this tour

Meet your art historian guide at the Muse d'Orsay for your private morning or afternoon art history tour. Considered one of the finest museums in Europe, the Muse d'Orsay was one of Paris' main train stations until the 1980s, when it was converted into an art gallery. The building's architecture is magnificent, and inside you'll find a stunning collection of some of Europe's most renowned 19th- and 20th-century paintings, sculptures and photography. Impressionism is the Muse d'Orsay's claim to fame.
Strolling side-by-side with your private guide, admire beautiful pieces by Edouard Manet, Paul Gauguin, August Renoir, Claude Monet and other masters; notable works include Manets Le Djeuner sur lHerbe and Renoirs Bal du Moulin de la Galette. You'll gain insight into the styles and techniques used by these revolutionary artists, who broke standards by setting up their easels outside, en plein air, to capture their impressions of their surroundings.

After your Muse d'Orsay tour, follow your guide across the Passerelle Solferino to the Jardin des Tuileries (Tuileries Gardens), adjacent to the Louvre Museum, and take in beautiful views over the Seine River. Arrive at the Muse de lOrangerie for your second museum tour.

The Muse de lOrangerie is home to a superb collection of works from luminaries including Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Paul Czanne, but its the 'Nymphas' ('Water Lillies') murals by Claude Monet that draws most visitors. Huge in scale yet immaculate in execution, this striking series of paintings was created in Monets garden at Giverny, and is considered to demonstrate the artists groundbreaking brush techniques to perfection. Marvel at the play of light across the panels and listen as your guide highlights the subtle intricacies found throughout the works.

After covering the highlights of the Muse de lOrangerie, your tour comes to a close. You're free to continue exploring the museum on your own.
