Paris: Musée d’Orsay Skip-The-Line Guided Tour

Skip the long lines to the beautiful Beaux Arts building that is now home to the Musée d’Orsay, and enter an alladin’s cave of French art. Located in a former railway station, the museum contains the world’s best collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art, although for a longtime it was overlooked.

Now you can learn about this unique period in art history, and see masterpieces by Monet, Courbet, Renoir, Cezanne, and Van Gogh. Along the way your guide will explain the social background and turmoil of the 19th century, providing an in-depth insight into the layered art works.

Highlights include “La Source” by Ingres, and “The Birth of Venus” by Bouguereau. Marvel at the realism of Courbet’s “L'Atelier du Peintre” (“The Artist’s Studio”) and “A Burial at Ornans.” See the exquisite colors of Manet’s “Breakfast on Grass” and the “Breakfast on Grass” by Monet. Other Monet paintings are the “Rue Montorgueil” and “Cathedrale de Rouen” series.

Admire Renoir’s “Bal du Moulin de la Galette,” and the “Still Life” by Cezanne, as well as Van Gogh’s “Auto-Portrait” and “Starry Night.”

Our original time to meet the tour guide was on the morning of Tuesday, October 9. Because of the threat of a general strike, the museum did not open at the correct time. Our guide met us, however, and we agreed to meet again at 2 PM in the afternoon. Anya gave us an excellent tour. She taught us the history of art from classical through to modern times in her 2 hour tour.. We were most impressed with her and her delivery. We would give her the highest rating.

Our guide Lily was extremely knowledgeable and the tour was fantastic!
With the background of our guide Lily,our tour was spent connnecting art to the political and cultural events of the time period. Lily was extremely well educated in art history and we were able to appreciate the art we saw and understand how it fit in with the time period. This tour was definitely the highlight of our time in Paris!!!

Outstanding value, wonderful way to get the most out of the d'Orsay
Our guide, Lilly, was deeply knowledgeable and a wonderful story teller. She was able to pull the pieces in the museum into an overall narrative of the progression of art in France. It was very educational and very fun. She spent time pointing out the "jokes" and secrets that you might not notice as a lay person.
