We really enjoyed our guide and seeing this fascinating area of Paris . It is a short tour of an hour and a half . We had lunch after the tour in a lovely bistro and had one of the best lunches of the trip . We felt the museum was not as diverse as the one in Barcelona , but it is a more personal exhibit which focuses on his first marriage to Olga . I'd go back again to this area , maybe adding a food tour to the day .

This was an excellent tour that was engaging and interesting. We had a terrific guide who was enthusiastic and anxious to show us her town. We got insight into this district of Paris. At the Museum, she was persistent to be sure we were in the right line to be sure we entered the museum ahead of all those waiting for tickets and didn't leave until we got into the museum. I highly recommend this tour!
