- Marie is a great guide!
Written by Barbara Dallez, 12-09-2023
It's really a great idea for introducing our children to art and history. Marie is very generous in her approach and it's very enjoyable. The only downside is that it goes a little too fast in each room, and we could imagine activities in the booklet that are a little more stimulating for everyone, as the older children in the group quickly get the better of the younger ones. Maybe make one booklet for the older children and another for the younger ones.

This Louvre event for children is far too expensive. 1h20 guided tour for 128 euros, two children and two adults for just the explanation of a few works.... The booking went well, but the day before we were due to leave we were informed that our activity could not take place (the blame was put on Le Louvre) and another activity was offered as a replacement on another day, so the activity schedule was changed.... Although the activity was fun and interesting for the children, the quality/price ratio was unacceptable!
- Very good discovery of the egyptology department

Very complete, we finally saw a lot of objects. Good level, approached in a playful way.
