Pitch of the visit "Orsay's masterpieces explained to children?

  • The Orsay Museum is a very beautiful space, installed in the old Orsay station. Just the architecture and the scenography of the museum justify its visit!

  • The visit "Orsay's masterpieces explained to children" allows visitors to understand the creative effervescence of the 19th century

  •  The different schools (academism, realism, naturalism and impressionism) and their little quarrels... are explained to the children who will then be able to understand perfectly this artistic period so rich

Sophie M (February 24, 2022):
Thanks to Émilie we spent a magical 1h30 at the Musée d'Orsay. Far from a classic visit, she knew how to give relief to this first discovery of the museum for the children, by comparing the painters and the styles of painting and by bringing anecdotes which allow to catch the attention and to make the paintings alive. She adapts very well to her audience and does not hesitate to involve them by asking questions. Mission accomplished for us, the children enjoyed it very much and will be delighted to go back to see the works that we did not have time to see.

Excellent visit of the Musée d'Orsay with Nathalie who knew how to captivate the children. The selection of works was relevant and the duration well adapted.

Nice also in the Orsay museum area...
