Tour Description
Calling all curious minds! Join us for a treasure hunt through the halls of the iconic Louvre, where history and imagination collide. Led by a friendly art detective (aka our local expert), this interactive adventure is a hands-on journey tailored for kids and their grown-up companions that will spark curiosity and ignite creative thinking.

Forget dusty exhibits and bored faces. This tour brings history to life, flexibly adapting to your child’s interests. Meet at Cafe Palais Royal, where your guide weaves tales of the Louvre, helping you imagine life inside when it was a mighty fortress or royal residence. 

Young explorers will then unravel ancient Egyptian mysteries, going face-to-face with sphinx statues and deciphering secrets hidden in hieroglyph-covered walls. They'll stand alongside the majestic Winged Victory, striking their own similar pose, and investigate the beauty of Venus de Milo. Why doesn’t she have arms? And why does the Mona Lisa have that mysterious smile?

Young art historians will be able to ask these questions and more, learning through playful queries and interactive activities. Your guide, a master of making art fun and accessible, will engage your kids with scavenger hunts and drawing challenges. Imagine them sketching like Da Vinci or designing their own mythical creature inspired by Greek legends. 

And you? You're not just a spectator – you're part of the adventure. Witness the joy in your child’s eyes as they discover hidden details, laugh along with their silly questions, and learn alongside them in this interactive journey. 

By the end, you will have conquered the Louvre's most famous treasures together, met historical figures and mythical gods, and created lasting memories and a love for art that goes beyond the Louvre walls. 

  • You want to turn the Louvre into a secret mission of art exploration. Crack secret codes hidden within iconic paintings, unravel the mysteries of ancient Egypt like a real archaeologist, and get to know Mona Lisa's enigmatic smile.
  • You can imagine you and your child as time travelers, meeting majestic kings and queens and mythical heroes in the halls of the iconic Louvre.
  • You have a burgeoning artist in the family who would relish the opportunity to sketch like the masters and create their own masterpieces inspired by the greats.

  • Louvre Museum - A treasure trove of stories and spectacles, the Louvre with kids becomes a playground of history and mystery, igniting young imaginations at every turn.
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.

    • 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.

Marie-Ange was a wonderful guide for our visit to the Louvre! We were able to see so much and it was an amazing experience!
Laurent was a great tour guide and we learned so much. He showed us different parts of the Louvre that would take us a long time to figure out on our own. Both adults and kids enjoyed the tour.
Remy was absolutely wonderful with our 6 and 7 year old girls! It was a highlight of our trip!
