2.0-hour exclusive tour. For children aged 6-12. €345 flat rate for families of 6 or fewer. Includes tickets.

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 pre-purchase timed Louvre tickets, so you will avoid the ticket line. When booking, be precise about how many in your party are over 18.  Your guide will need to know exactly how many adult tickets to purchase in advance.  Louvre tickets are non-refundable.  For cancellations before 10 days, you will be refunded for only the non-ticket portion of your tour (total minus 85 euros for Nile Family Voyage).
