Visit the Louvre Museum with the family
With its hundreds of thousands of works of art spread throughout the 72 hectare exhibition space, you’ll never be able to visit all of the Louvre Museum in a single day. So, if you’re looking for a family visit the kids are guaranteed to adore, follow our advice and you’ll have every chance of succeeding! Something tells us that your young campers are just dying to discover the ancient Egyptian sarcophagi... So head for the museum’s Sully Wing on level 0: it also contains the masterpieces from Ancient Greece for a fascinating journey to the very heart of mythology!
Another unmissable at the Louvre: the Touch Gallery, the only area where you can literally get your hands on the artworks. The children will have the time of their lives!
Visit the Louvre Museum as a couple
Between the sculptures in the Michelangelo Gallery on level 0 and the treasures of the Apollo Gallery on level 1, the Louvre Museum is a veritable celebration of love and lovers! From Psyche to the Venus de Milo, without of course missing the renowned Mona Lisa, treat yourself to a romantic tour of this fabulous venue. And you can also explore it during the late-night opening hours on Wednesday and Friday evenings.
And after you leave the museum, your visit still isn’t over: when the weather’s fine, continue your trip by exploring the superb Tuileries and Carrousel Gardens, both of which adjoin the Louvre. The perfect spot for a welcome rest after a visit filled with discoveries!
