Is this tour private?

Yes, it is. No one else will be joining your private tour, and you will have your own private guide throughout the visit. However, there will be other people visiting the museum at the same time.

When is the best time to visit the Musée d’Orsay?

During the summer season and special holidays, there is no besttime, as the Musée d’Orsay is always very crowded, especially in front of the iconic highlights.

Are the parents staying with the children or separated?

We always promote a family-bonding moment, where parents and children enjoy an activity together as a family. So, parents and children will not be separated. However, if you choose to send your children on this activity alone, it is possible, provided that a babysitter accompanies the children regardless of the age, for insurance purposes (our guides are not responsible for the children).

Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?

We recommend this museum visit for kids aged 6 or older, because they must know how to read and write in order to enjoy the fun-filled game booklet.

Will we have to wait in line?

We provide skip-the-line tickets, but on very busy days, there might be a line for security checks which cannot be avoided. The wait should not last long though.

Once the tour is finished, can we stay inside the museum or go back in?

Of course, you are free to stay inside the museum if you wish to continue exploring it once the tour is finished. Our tour cannot cover the whole collection, so we highly recommend staying a while longer if you and your family are interested in art. If you exit the building though, you cannot go back in.

Can I bring a stroller or a wheelchair?

Yes, the Musée d’Orsay is wheelchair friendly and there are elevators to bring disabled people to the upper floors. Strollers are also accepted.

Will my teenage kids like the tour?

Sure they will. They might not want to have the game booklet, but since it is a private tour, our professional guide will adapt their speech to keep your teenagers engaged and entertained throughout the tour.
