When to book your Louvre Tickets

Before you can begin treasure hunting through the Louvre’s amazing collection, you first have to get inside! The museum has a charge to enter and it is much easier, and much faster to book online in advance, to save you waiting in long boring queues.

The best and cheapest place to get your Louvre entry tickets is at the official Louvre site. If you have booked a Classic or Luxe THATMuse we recommend you book your tickets for 30 minutes after your start time. This allows time for you to meet your THATMuse greeter, who will enthral you with the history of the galleries before explaining how the hunt works, then lead you through security and inside, the quickest way possible.

If you have booked a Corporate Group or School Hunt you will meet your Greeter inside the foyer of the museum. We recommend you contact us for the best way to book tickets, depending on your size and age.

Other small points to remember: All kids under 18 enter free (without the need for a blank ticket) and EU citizens under the age of 26 enter free with photo ID. We always recommend our clients who have kids aged 15 or older to bring photo ID with them wherever they go in Paris, anyway.
