I really enjoy art history and Degas is one of my favorites. I was really looking forward to this tour but was a little disapointed. In the begining they have you sit and watch a long video that gives you background on Degas family. ( kinda felt like I coulda googled that) Then a short walk through the two halves of the houses. They point out cheap reproductions on the wall of what he was working on durning that time. I was so disapointed that there wernt original works. The stuff they had looked like framed posters. I really felt like I didnt need to be in that house which has been chopped up and moved around to learn these things. Then there was a short walking tour at the end that just gave history of the surrounding area. Overall I felt like it was overpriced and would tell a friend to skip it. Maybe if you were doing one of their paint nights it would be more fun.
