Star Star Star Star Star - Great time, the children enjoyed the games and the very didactic nature of the speaker.

The animator knew how to get the children involved while teaching them lots of things. My granddaughter was delighted with her visit. I highly recommend the children's activities at the Louvre (it's the 2nd one we've done and we're going to continue).

The format, the humor, the anecdotes, the tone, the explanations... it was just perfect. I highly recommend this experience for young and old alike. It's a great way to rediscover a small part of this beautiful Louvre Museum and inspire children to go further. Kind regards Valérie

Written by Cécile , on 26-02-2024

An experience I recommend and would do again. The visit was easy, lively, exciting and engaging. A completely different way of coming to the museum, with someone who knows the place, the anecdotes and how to talk to children to get them interested AND channeled. Thank you so much for a wonderful time!

Star Star Star Star Star - Lots of information
Written by Alice LEPEZ, on 26-02-2024

first of all, the "group" organization needs to be reviewed with the Louvre reception desk: too long a wait for bags to be "searched" at the entrance. Not enough checkroom lockers. Very good knowledge on the part of the group leader, but sometimes too many details that drown out the essential. Perhaps fewer "details", but a fuller, broader sweep of Greek mythology. Regrets regarding the rather limited number of works approached in 1h30..... No difficulties in booking, nor in finding the group. I think that for this activity, I'll encourage future visitors, children - aged 8 to 12 - to review the (complex) "kinship" links between certain gods and goddesses by means of a simplified organization chart or family tree, and at the same time I'll attempt a chronological frieze to situate the different moments in history in which they intervene.

Star Star Star Star Star - Very interesting and well conducted

A little expensive

An exceptional visit with our guide Cyril, whose captivating way of bringing Greek mythology to life in this superb monument, the Louvre. Both young and old enjoyed it!

Star Star Star Star Star - A great storyteller!
Written by Cécilia Delépine-Vouloir, 18-02-2024

A visit that relies on the quality of the guide, and he's extraordinary. Captivating and precise, we learned a lot about Greek mythology and lexicon! He was able to adapt to the defective audio guides and did a great job!
