Hours & Admission Open every day except Tuesday
Following the terror attacks in Paris on November 13, 2015, the Musée du Louvre is strictly applying the security measures decided by the French authorities to ensure visitor safety, while remaining open as usual.
It is strongly recommended not to bring suitcases and luggage to the museum.
Only luggage not exceeding 55 x 35 x 20 cm (21.5 x 13.5 x 7.5 inches) can be accepted and must be placed in the lockers after being checked.
All visitors must comply with the security checks. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience or delay caused by the extra security checks at the entrances.
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 April 28, 2017.
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.
