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?

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. 
  • 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.

My 6 year old daughter and 74 year old father both loved this tour. Abigail was terrific! She kept my daughter (and dad!) engaged the whole time. Highly recommend.
Emmanuel was absolutely outstanding!! Not only was she able to navigate all the incredibly long lines with ease, she was just wonderful with our daughter who has special needs. We were just amazed by how fantastic this tour is. Thank you so much Emmanuel, you made our trip to Paris just brilliant.
Context makes the tour experience so special and personalized. Emmanuel was AMAZING and we loved our time with him on our Louvre Museum Tour for Kids. Emmanuel is so knowledgeable and gave us a great history of the Louvre, taught us about the most well known highlights, but also the hidden gems that don’t get all the publicity of the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo. Emmanuel took great care to engage our kids and gave all of us an experience we will never forget. Emmanuel and Context made our once in a lifetime trip incredibly special and unforgettable!
