Your historical family adventure begins hundreds of years ago in the Medieval foundations of the Louvre; a military fortress turned royal residence, long before the construction of the iconic glass pyramids and before it became the world’s most iconic and most visited museum. Let your children be the actors of their own experience, you'll be surprised how much knowledge they can handle!
Armed with beautifully crafted activity sheets and accompanied by your very own art history expert, your family will discover the highlights of the Louvre from the Great Sphynx of Tanis and the Venus de Milo to the Winged Victory of Samothrace. Youngsters will have the chance to discover which of the Kings & Queens of France lived in the Louvre, what makes a portrait a portrait and even to draw their very own version of the much-adored Mona Lisa.
From Greek and Roman sculpture to Italian Renaissance painting, the whole family will be discovering and observing together. You'll be amazed who'll be the most captivated. For the final part of the tour, your wish is our guide’s command – a trip to Ancient Egypt? A stroll through the decadent apartments of Napoleon III? A peek at the Roman weaponry or Royal jewels? Your guide will adapt the final part of your tour according to your family’s requests and by the end of the tour, the whole family will comprehend the Great Masters of the Louvre!
