The Louvre Audio Guide In partnership with Nintendo

COVID-19 measures: the audio guides and headsets are carefully cleaned with a disinfectant between each use.

Explore the palace and collections with the new audio guide! A selection of 300 room commentaries will allow you to find out more about the context and history of the exhibition spaces and the techniques and styles of the artworks they contain, while 150 masterpiece commentaries offer a more in-depth look at some of the greatest treasures in the museum (on-the-spot interviews with curators and official guides!).
