Hours & Admission Open every day except Tuesday

Vigipirate
Following the terror attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015, the Louvre is strictly applying the security measures decided by the French authorities to ensure the safety of our visitors.
It is strongly recommanded not to bring suitcases and luggage to the museum. Only luggage not exceeding 55 cm x 35 cm x 20 cm will be accepted. Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience and delay which may be caused by the extra security checks at the entrance.
In the event of an incident, visitors must vacate the danger zone, alert our security staff and follow their instructions. Visitors may be confined or evacuated to a secure area while waiting for the police to arrive.

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 (see download document to the right) indicates which rooms are open and closed until March 31, 2016.
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.
