Group Visits

To prevent overcrowding in the galleries, the Louvre endeavours to spread group access (between 7 and 30 people) over the entire day. They are therefore requested to make a reservation in advance.
Groups consist of 7 to 30 persons.
Groups are restricted to 20 persons in Objets d'art Department.
Groups are permitted to enter the museum every day except on Tuesdays, public holidays, during the entire day on the first Sunday of each month and after 1pm on other Sundays.
Guided tours of the Napoléon III Apartments (Richelieu Wing) are not permitted after 3pm.
Special Group Entrance through Passage Richelieu (verification of advance booking).

Advance booking is obligatory:

Free documentary assistance is offered by the museum in the multimedia library to those preparing guided tours for school or association groups. Tel.: (33-1) 40 20 52 80.


Entrance Fee to the museum in addition for each group member.
