The Musée de l'Orangerie has programmes and activities on offer designed to be as much an initiation to art history as a form of cultural entertainment. All year long you can discover the permanent collection or the latest exhibition by taking a guided tour led by museum guides who are part of the Réunion des musées nationaux - Grand Palais.
