Louvre Questions

Does our ticket include temporary exhibitions?

Your ticket includes access to the permanent collection. Any temporary exhibits (that require an additional fee) are not included, so they must be purchased separately (at the museum or directly through the museum’s website).

Is there a reduced price for kids/students/infants/seniors?

Private tours are priced according to group size rather than group dynamic, as we secure skip-the-line tickets for your group in advance, and schedule a private, accredited guide just for your party.
