The Louvre truly has something for everyone in the family, and your guide keeps the kids enthralled with interesting facts about the history of the museum and its works of art, for instance, the fact that the Louvre was built in the 12th century and was originally a fortress and palace. Your tour centers around certain themes, such as the Da Vinci Code, Egyptian Gods, or Mona Lisa’s Legend.
With your guide leading the way, see the works of major artists like Géricault, Canova, Delacroix, Bernini, Michelangelo, Ingres, and Ghirlandaio. Perhaps you'll also see the Crown Jewels or the Napoleon III Apartments, depending on your interests and availability of masterpieces. Of course, you probably won't want to miss Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, as well as other famed masterpieces such as the Winged Victory of Samothrace and Venus de Milo.
You can decide if you want to go for a 1.5, a 2 hour or a 3 hour tour, depending on the needs of your kids, and what you see can be tailored to your preferences and the ages of your children.
One thing that you hear about the Louvre before you go there is the sheer enormity of the collection, and that can make the thought of taking children there overwhelming. This tour was perfect for making the museum's biggest treasures accessible to adults and children alike, and we are grateful to have found it. Agathe was a wonderful guide. She was prompt, engaging, and kept our 12- and 10-year-old sons interested and involved in everything we were seeing. It was especially nice to be able to go directly to the great works we wanted to see, and the background information -- both historical and artistic -- and depth of knowledge Agathe had were quite impressive. I recommend this tour to any families who want to see the Louvre in a way that everyone can get something out of it.
We enjoyed a 2-hour private tour with our 7 and 12 y/o kids. 2 hours was the perfect amount of time for the 7 y/o - and our tour guide did a great job keeping him engaged and interested. We skipped the lines for tickets and security with the Blue Badge, and were regaled by interesting stories about the Louvre in general and some of the works of are we were particularly interested in the entire time. We spent another hour or so after getting a snack, but still haven't scratched the surface discovering the treasures within. Money well spent - great experience and memories. Thanks!
The tour company changed our guide to Valeria and we're so glad they did. She was energetic, knowledgeable, and connected with the kids, ages 8 and 10 immediately. The 2 hours flew by, with all of us learning, and appreciating the fine works of art at the Louvre, Thanks Valeria, you educated the whole family and made it fun.
Great way to visit the Louvre with kids! (and even skip the lines)

Chloe was very engaging with our daughters and made the 2+hour Louvre visit into a great experience. Oldest one actually called it the best excursion we had done in Paris. (and that was a surprising thing to hear!) Recommend Chloe highly, you get to skip the lines, learn something about art and guarantee your kids will enjoy the museum visit!
