Ciblage parfait de la visite Bonne compréhension de l’organisation du musée et de ses œuvres Explications très précises de chaque œuvre et de sa place dans l’histoire de l’art.
à faire mais avec une guide à l'heure !

les + : visiter en privé un musée : "un must indispensable" la guide explique la chronologie, ouvre les yeux sur les symboliques , situe l'oeuvre dans l'histoire et introduit tout logiquement à l'impressionnisme , et à tous les mouvements de peinture en découlant le GROS - : il est bien précisé à la réservation que vous devez arriver à 9H45 pour débuter la visite à 10 H tapante ! la guide était en retard d'environ 20 minutes sans excuses , la visite ne commences qu'à 10 H 30 ..... mais par contre, l'heure de fin, elle , a été parfaitement respectée :12 H 30 tapante , la guide nous salue ! ce manque de ponctualité nous a privé d'environ 30 MN d'explication dans le musée engendrant un sentiment de frustration, car les explications données étaient parfaites
