Philip our tour guide was wonderful! He never rushed us and he was generous with his inputs. He explained the background of each and every artist in this museum, their history, their inspirations etc. If you love art, you will enjoy this tour. A relatively small museum compared to the others in Paris but the pieces are all top notch quality.
