Full description
Specifically adapted to accommodate for children's shorter attention spans this tour is perfect for families with children. Your guide will adapt their language to hold the attention of the children while simultaneously answering any questions you may have. You will feel welcomed as a family while discovering the richness of the museum’s collections in a beautiful setting. In terms of collections, the museum is a prime spot to discover the Impressionist movement. It features painted and sculpted masterpieces by famous artists, including Monet’s Poppies, Manet’s The Luncheon on the Grass and Olympia, Renoir’s Dance at Le moulin de la Galette; Degas’ dancers and Cezanne’s The Card Players. Each work of art in the museum has a story and significance, but your guide will avoid overwhelming you and focus on selected major works. If you or your children are art enthusiasts, your guide will adapt the tour to any requests you may have. What better way to experience the Orsay than to visit as a family?

A deep dive into Impressionist Art

We had a fabulous visit with Ivan at Orsay Museum. I was with my two boys aged 6 and 7 years and they loved knowing about artists and art history. He broke the ice by discussing football with them. He presented and spoke with a lot drama just like a great story teller. I totally recommend Ivan.
