Visitor Tips

With your comfort in mind, the Musée du Louvre offers a host of services to guarantee a quality visit.

A reception team at the main information desks located below the Pyramid is available to inform and advise you on museum news, services and operations.

Loan of equipment

Walking sticks, folding stools, strollers, baby carriers, and wheelchairs are available free of charge from the visitor assistance area (located beneath the Pyramid) in exchange for a piece of ID (or, in the case of folding stools, on presentation of a Louvre copyist’s card). Loaned equipment may not be taken out of the museum.


Self-service lockers are available free of charge beneath the Pyramid.

PLEASE NOTE: any items exceeding 55 cm x 35 cm x 20 cm are not permitted in the museum.

All items left in lockers must be collected the same day. The Musée du Louvre is not responsible for lost or stolen property.
