Our family Louvre adventure explores one of history’s most fascinating civilizations: ancient Egypt. This educational program is designed to encourage kids to think like archaeologists—by using the Louvre’s world-renown Egyptian collections—to bring people from the past to vivid life. Children actively explore key areas of Egypt’s civilization: the Nile river, a scribe’s workshop, and a pharaoh’s crypt. In each area, children will learn to engage meaningfully with key objects, using a variety of thinking tools to understand what they tell us about ancient Egyptian beliefs.
Young archaeologists and their private guide will voyage down the Nile, making their way through the Louvre galleries with an interactive map. In each area, they decode a series of symbols, motivating them to proceed to the next stage of their adventure. As a final challenge, they translate a code which reveals a secret location where families travel back to present day-Paris. The program is accompanied by an educational booklet and a take-home souvenir.
The New York Times chose “A Nile Family Voyage at the Louvre” as an ideal museum experience in July 2015.
Your guide will bring your timed and dated tickets, and your family will use a priority access line to enter the museum. There will be a wait for the required security screening, however.
Our cancellation and change policies are here.
Tour Teaser: Introduce your kids to the Egyptian gods.
Our guides are trained to lead wheelchair-accessible tours that use the Louvre’s many ramps and elevators.
We can assist you in borrowing a free wheelchair on site, with your ID. We recommend this to visitors with limited mobility, since navigating the Louvre can be physically demanding. Please specify your mobility needs when booking online.
Children in strollers are welcome at the Louvre. Strollers larger than 55cm x 35cm x 20cm when folded cannot be checked during your visit. Frontal baby carriers and slings are allowed, but back carriers with metal frames are not.
Well Worth The Money
We visited the Louvre with the help of the wonderful Charlotte. What an experience we had! Our family—Mum, Dad and 2 kids (9 and 12)—all learned so much. We went at our own speed and stopped for questions and conversations when we wanted. Charlotte is very knowledgeable and shares this so readily with youngsters. We would highly recommend Paris Muse tours—well worth the money.
Excellent Tours by Outstanding Guides
I booked 2 tours with Paris Muse for my family with 2 children aged 8 and 10: Paris Muse Clues and the A Nile Family Voyage at the Louvre. Our guides Karen and Emma were simply spectacular, keeping the kids interested with a series of riddles and games, while at the same time teaching them about the art, and also giving us adults a lot of information. It’s not cheap, but equivalent to other private tours at the Louvre, and absolutely worth the expense if you want your children to have a great time while learning in Paris. Strongly recommended. Thank you Paris Muse!
Perfect Tours For Young Families!
In October my family was fortunate enough to vacation in Paris... we decided to book not one but two tours, The Nile Family Voyage Louvre Tour and Paris Muse Clues. The first tour we did was the Nile Family Voyage with Madeline Diaz. Madeline was amazing and kept our two children fully engaged during the 2 hour tour. . . . Even as my youngest seemed to become distracted, Madeline would ask both children a question and inevitably my four year old would immediately pipe in with the correct answer. At the end of the tour they had to solve a riddle and discover their "reward." . . . As parents, it was so wonderful to watch our kids listen and absorb the information and actively participate in the tour. . . . I am quite confident that no matter what tour we participated in that it would have been an amazing experience. Both Madeline Diaz and Emma Burton made history and art come to life for our children and it will definitely be an experience to remember for a lifetime.
