Education All year round Per group of 20 people

Guided tours, workshop-tours, introductory tours, series of tours…

The Louvre-Lens museum offers the possibility of accessing activities accompanied by a mediator (tours, workshops and workshop-tours) but also to organise their own independent tours. Introductory tours are organised to enable teachers and other accompanying adults to devise their own project with the museum.

Introducing art history and archaeology, explaining how to read a work of art, showing the different activities of the museum, its architecture or heritage, promoting learning about artistic creation: the Louvre-Lens is a local educational museum which encourages people to develop a liking for museum visits and cultural activities.
