During the 2023 Christmas vacations, from December 22, 2023 to January 7, 2024, the Musée d'Orsay is once again organizing its flagship event for each school vacation period: Holidays at the Museum, with a great program for children.

During the 2023 Christmas vacations, the whole family will be heading for the museums of Paris! And not just any museum: the Musée d'Orsay, famous for its exceptional collections of Impressionist paintings (among others).

So, for the vacations at the Musée d'Orsay, a great program awaits you and your family, in the museum's Salle des fêtes, to take part in the fun, free-access activities on offer every day the museum is open, from 10am to 5pm. You'll be able to strike a pose and try your hand at creating a tableau vivant, inspired by a painting actually on display at the Musée d'Orsay, awaken your sense of creativity in creative workshops based on famous painting techniques, or enjoy a quiet moment in the reading corner, where volunteers from the Lire et faire lire association offer readings all day long.

During your visit to the museum's collections, you'll also be given a visit kit (in the Salle des Fêtes) to help you discover them as a family, with interactive tools for younger visitors. The Musée d'Orsay is open every day during the 2023 Christmas vacations, except on December 25 and January 1, 2024. All the activities on offer in the museum's vacation area are free of charge, with no admission requirements, although you will need to purchase your museum admission ticket beforehand to gain access.
