Frequently Asked 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?
Yes, children aged 4-12 have a reduced ticket cost. Children under 3 are free to enter the Louvre, but identification may be required at the entrance. Fat Tire Tours cannot guarantee free entry for children under 3 lacking identification.
Please ensure that all members of your party have a valid ID on them on the day of the visit. This is particularly important for guests who have qualified for child reduction.
