FAQs for visiting the Louvre

Can I take photos inside the museum?

Photos are allowed inside the Louvre. However, many pieces, including the Mona Lisa, have strict regulations which prohibit the use of flash photography.

Are there lockers inside the Louvre?

Yes, there are lockers available for rent inside the Louvre. Your host or guide can help you locate them. The Louvre doesn’t allow visitors to bring large or bulky bags into the galleries.

How long is the line to enter the Louvre?

How long you’ll have to wait in line to enter the Louvre varies. Both the ticket line and the Louvre entry line currently require a wait of around 30 minutes each on busy days (around 1 hour total). With your ticket from any of our Louvre tours, you won’t need to wait in the line to purchase your museum admission ticket. However, everyone will enter the line for the security screening and health pass check. Don’t worry — our guides will direct you to a shorter entry point to help save time and keep you entertained along the way.

How much walking is there on the Louvre tours?

There is about 1 mile of walking at a very leisurely pace. Inside the Louvre, elevators and escalators are periodically repaired and may be closed for service and therefore can be unpredictable. There are short flights of stairs throughout the tour. If mobility is an issue, please indicate this when booking your tour.

What if it rains?

Our tours run rain or shine, so please check the local forecast to plan. In rare cases when we have to cancel for extreme weather, we’ll offer you the chance to reschedule or give a full refund. But the Louvre is a wonderful destination to visit in the rain since most of the sites are indoors!

When should I get there?

Plan to show up 15 minutes early for your Louvre tour or hosted experience. This helps you make the most of your time if you’re joining us for a private tour. And if you’re joining for a public tour, it’s essential to be prompt as you may not be able to catch up if you are late.

Can I use my voucher to enter the Louvre if I miss the tour?

Your vouchers are not your tickets. Your tickets will be sent to you by email, and you should have them accessible on your device before the tour.

Is there a separate redemption point?

There’s no separate redemption point. Bring your voucher to the meeting point, and give the guide or host your name. We’ll take care of the rest!
