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 Musée Eugène Delacroix is situated in the apartment/studio Delacroix moved into in December 1857. Attached to the Louvre since 2004, the museum is home to a broad collection of the French artist's work—paintings, pastels, drawings, lithographs—as well as a substantial body of letters and memorabilia.

Rich in memories—Delacroix died there on August 13, 1863—the museum is also a place where one senses intimate contact with the artist's creative spirit. The studio was built to his specifications and the wide glazed facade giving onto the garden is embellished with moldings of ancient works of art.

The recent renovation of the garden, carried out with the support of the Japanese company Kinoshita, means visitors can now enjoy a haven of peace in the heart of Paris.
