Hours & Admission Open every day except Tuesday

The rooms of the eight departments of the Musée du Louvre are open every day except Tuesday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (9:45 p.m. on Wednesday and Friday late-night openings).

Due to the breadth of its collections and transfers of artworks, the museum cannot maintain all of its rooms open every day. The schedule of room closures indicates which rooms are open and closed until May 19, 2015.
Each "Notice" section gives the detailed list of rooms currently closed for renovation.
Some storage rooms are also closed as part of our collections care program.
