Hours, Admission & Directions

 

Information

 

High visitor numbers are expected in the coming days. For this reason, we strongly recommend buying tickets online to ensure entry to the museum.

From 17 July until mid-October 2019, while renovations are ongoing in its usual location, the Mona Lisa will be displayed in the Galerie Médicis (room 801) on level 2 of the Richelieu wing. More information

Due to the size of its collections and the renovations of certain galleries, the museum cannot keep all of its rooms open at all times.
On this page you will find the “Schedule of Room Closures” indicating the days of the week and times of day rooms are open or closed, as well as the list of exceptional closures, due in large part to renovation work.
