We recommend that you print this page and have it with you in Paris.

Meet your guide outside the Musée d’Orsay at ENTRANCE C, which faces the Rue de Lille.  The museum is located in the 7th arrondissement.

Your guide will be waiting for you in the spot indicated in the photograph—between the two revolving doors, under the glass awning. Please do not proceed into the museum without your guide.

ENTRANCE C is the “entrée reservée,” the reserved entrance.

There is a small staircase on Rue de Lille—across from the Royal Orsay café—which leads directly to ENTRANCE C meeting spot.  Please do not confuse this with the main ENTRANCE A on the other side of the museum, closest to the Seine River.

Do not wait in line. Your guide will have purchased your tickets in advance, so you will be able to proceed into the museum with him or her.

**Please be advised, there may be a small amount of waiting in order to go through the security check, and in summer months, there may be an additional wait due to crowds, even at the reserved entrance.

If you are traveling by Métro:

Walk from the SOLFERINO station (line 12) on Rue Bellechasse, which runs north towards the river. At the intersection of Bellechasse and Rue de Lille (there is a café at that corner), take a right. Walk about 50 yards and cross the street. There is a staircase directly across from another café called the Royal Orsay (#75 Rue de Lille). This set of stairs will lead you directly to the Entrance C doors shown in the photograph.

Please be aware that your guide will wait for a maximum of 20 minutes after the scheduled time of your tour. We regret that we are unable to give refunds for late arrivals beyond this time, or for cancellations less than 48 hours before the tour begins.
