Discover the wonderful artwork on display in the Musee d'Orsay

Not only is the Musée d'Orsay the most visited Paris museum, it also boasts the world's largest collection of Impressionist artwork, showcasing an inspiring display of colorful paintings and sculptures that date back to the 1840s. As testament to its popularity, the Musée d'Orsay often has queues that can easily exceed an hour, so your fast-track skip-the-line ticket ensures you'll have the quickest entry to this incredible museum.

The architecture of the Orsay building itself is equally impressive, having originally been built as a grand train station (Gare d'Orsay) for the 1900 Universal Exhibit, a world fair that celebrated the achievements of the past century. While exploring the building with your expert guide, you'll marvel at its ornate walls and the stunning vaulted roof that frames the intriguing artwork within.

Very informative and interesting. It was the perfect amount of time for a tour. Not too long or too short. The guide was very knowledgeable. This was my fifth time in Paris, but my first time to the Orsay. Highly recommended.

I had limited time to visit the museum so this was perfect. We got straight in and missed the queue which was around the block. We were then given a two hour tour from a highly knowledgable member of the museum staff who showed us the highlights of the collection and gave us an overview of the development of artistic style through the time period of the collection. Brilliant.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Musee dOrsay tour. Skip the line feature got us off to a great start. Our guide led us throughout the museum capturing all the highlights and providing excellent historical information for us to experience the impressionists' movement. The outside patio offered great photo opportunities. Afterwards we went to the museum's cafe in the former hotel banquet/ballroom for a delicious lunch!

It was great to walk right in to the museum. It was even better to have a guided tour, with plenty of time afterwards to peruse the museum on our own.
