School groups : booking and terms

Please note

Following government announcements and due to health standards, new modalities concerning groups have been put in place in order to be able to welcome you as well as possible.

From 9 June to 4 July inclusive

  • School groups and adults can be accommodated in the permanent collections and the exhibition The Origins of the World within the limits of our capacity.

  • No group can be accommodated in the exhibition Swiss Modernities.

  • The number of slots will be limited and the capacity will remain at 15 people maximum (accompanying persons and guide included).

You can of course send us your request now via our online reservation form.

The group reservations team will do everything possible to accommodate your asks and is happy to be able to welcome us back to the Musée d'Orsay.

No admittance for groups without prior booking, with or without guide


You can book two types of tour:

  • Unguided tours, led by the group leader (e.g. an interpreter-guide or approved tour guide, a teacher with pupils, etc.) or without a guide,
  • guided tours, led by a Musée d’Orsay guide.

Groups are admitted by reservation only, Tuesday to Saturday, 9.15am to 3.45pm.
