Tour Description
Embark on an enchanting 2.5-hour journey through the Louvre's landmark collections, specially designed for kids and guided by a local art historian. This tour transforms a regular museum visit into an exciting adventure, weaving through history and imagination. Tailored to engage and inspire young minds, it flexibly adapts to your child's interests, igniting their curiosity and fostering creative thinking in each gallery.

You’ll begin with tales of the Louvre itself, once a mighty fortress and a royal residence, brimming with stories as grand as the kings and queens who lived there. Picture your family unraveling ancient Egyptian mysteries, diving into Greek legends right beside the enigmatic Winged Victory or the armless beauty of the Venus de Milo, and uncovering the secrets behind Mona Lisa's smile.

With each masterpiece, your friendly guide, adept in making art fun and accessible, will engage your kids with playful questions and hands-on activities. And you? You’ll be right there, part of the interactive journey, discovering and learning alongside them.

By the tour’s end, your family will have journeyed through the Louvre’s most famous pieces and met historical figures and mythical gods who’ll captivate your children’s imagination. The world of art will feel a little less intimidating, a little more magical, and far more accessible.

General Information
  • There will be a break in the tour to stop and use bathroom facilities as well as opportunities to stop and rest along the way if needed. 
  • Strollers are allowed in the museum, but it might be easier to navigate crowded areas with a baby carrier.
  • Please communicate any mobility needs or concerns with our team at the time of booking. 
  • We suggest that families book the 9:30 AM slot for their visit, as it's an optimal time to experience the museum in a more peaceful setting. Weekday mornings are generally quieter, offering a more relaxed atmosphere to enjoy the exhibits.
  • Includes skip-the-line tickets to  the Louvre, for your whole family 
  • Note: Our skip-the-line tickets will get us to a special lane where our group will have to stand in line due to security and crowd control measures.
  • Depending on your group size, we may be required by the venue to order headsets, in which case you’ll see a “Headset Fee” added to your order. 
  • Pre-Visit Preparation: 
    • Introduce your child to some of the artworks they will see. Picture books and online resources about art can be helpful. The Louvre's official website provides materials here for families.
    • Explain what behavior is expected in a museum—speaking quietly, not touching the art, and walking instead of running.

Jessica is a great guide. Engaging for children of all ages and adults too. I would highly recommend her.
Marie was amazing! Her knowledge and energy kept my kids entertained the whole time. We absolutely loved the tour.
Barbara was a perfect fit for our family! She engaged my 11 year old sons right from the start. She really knew how to get their attention as well as get them to contemplate and express their feelings and thought about each piece of art we experienced. She got us around the Louvre so easily which I was very grateful for as well. I would take a tour with Barbara again in a heartbeat
