The "Musée d'Orsay" is the best place to admire paintings by the great impressionist masters and the artists of the nineteenth century: Manet, Monet, Degas, Renoir, Van Gogh, Gauguin... 

This old train station was turned into a museum in 1986, and has become one of the favorite museums of French people: it is for a good reason!


Discover the reasons why the impressionist artists like Monet or Renoir were so different from the academic painters like Ingres or Cabanel. Take advantage of your guided tour to understand the evolution of art in the second half of the nineteenth century, as well as admiring some of the most famous paintings of this time: the "Olympia" by Manet, the "Bal du Moulin de la Galette" by Renoir, the "Water lilies" by Monet or some self-portraits by Van Gogh...

Why do I love leading this tour in the Orsay museum?

"The Musée d'Orsay is fascinating, not only for the artworks, but also for the architecture of the old train station. My favorite place in the museum, is the view all around Paris from the clock on the 5th floor, where are the impressionist paintings".
