Our advice with children

Before visiting the museum, stop by the Children's Bookstore. It is located in the gallery that goes from the stores of the Carrousel du Louvre to the entrance of the museum. You will find game books to visit the Louvre and other museums.

Depending on the age of the children, give yourself between 1 hour and 1h30 of visit, not more and go to the essential.
You can also, before your visit, download the game paths of about 1h30 (several themes are proposed).

In the Richelieu wing, thea Little Gallery is a space dedicated to children. Twice a year, exhibitions offer to explore a theme thanks to major works from prehistory to contemporary creation.

Workshops for children of all ages. For 4-6 year olds, 6-8 year olds and 8-12 year olds. Sketch workshops: you can wander around the museum and make a work of art your own. Frommime workshops to experiment with postures, mimes and movements in the encounter with a work of art. Also some conducted workshops by a choreographer where children study the representation of the body in movement.

Discover the works in families through wonderful stories. Several themes such as Egypt, Persia or the Orient. From 4 years old
