We took a Saturday morning tour with a Fat Tire museum guide named Francois. The tour lasted about 2 hours and, in addition to the no wait entry, we got a narrated tour of the highlights of the Museum. Francois did a great job explaining the development and evolution of the Impressionist period and shared little personal stories about the artists that added a wonderful human element to all the famous art we were seeing. To us, his passion and knowledge made the tour a very enjoyable one as opposed to just having someone say "here is a painting by so and so." The use of headsets made everything Francois said easy to hear and we would judge a must due to all the visitors. All the Fat Tire staff were very friendly and kept our small group together in a pretty crowded venue. If you have limited time or are unfamiliar with the Impressionist period, this is a good way to get your bearings and to get a feel for what this museum has to offer. The building was beautiful and had a very airy feel.
