Firstly, you will be introduced to the fascinating history of the museum and learn about the Italian architect Gae Aulenti and how she turned an abandoned station into a museum.

You will walk where the train once ran, and admire the art from the mid-nineteenth century to 1914. You will cover realism, impressionism, post-impressionism and art-nouveau. You will discuss Delacroix, Ingres, Courbet, Daumier, Millet, Manet, Monet, Degas, Renoir, Rodin, Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gauguin, Toulouse-Lautrec and many others.
