Helpful tips

Make your group visit a success

Book a time slot in advance

If you wish to visit the museum with a group of more than 6 persons, a reservation must be made in advance. Otherwise, access to the museum may be denied. There is a dedicated entrance for groups that have made a reservation, in the Passage Richelieu. Children and young people under the age of 26 are entitled to free admission; groups of school children or disabled or disadvantaged visitors must also make a reservation (free of charge). 

Arrive early

It takes about ten minutes to get from the metro to the Pyramid entrance. Allow 15 minutes to make a stop at the cloakroom and toilets before going to the exhibition rooms. A special reception area for groups is at your disposal.

Travel light and bring only what you need

Special equipment is available for children and disabled visitors at the visitor assistance area (wheelchairs, prams, etc.). If you have any problems, please speak to a member of staff under the Pyramid or at the group reception area.

Don’t try to see everything in one visit

The Louvre is very big (35, 000 artworks; 13.5km of exhibition space!) and visiting it can be tiring for both young and old. To make sure your visit is a pleasurable experience, try to plan your itinerary ahead. Not sure which rooms to visit? Take a look at the ‘Explore’ section.

Take breaks

Seats are available throughout the museum. No eating or drinking is allowed in the exhibition rooms, but why not have a picnic in the Tuileries Garden?
