What to expect

Uncover the secrets of the Louvre Museum with this 2-hour Murders and Mysteries tour.

Once a royal palace and today the largest museum in the world, the Louvre hides within its walls centuries of secrets, vile crimes, and mysterious masterpieces. Who is hidden behind Mona Lisa’s smile? What secrets are the Venus de Milo and the Winged Victory of Samothrace still hiding? Accompanied by your knowledgeable guide, you will discover the major works of art with a new perspective, and visit the exceptional department of Egyptian Antiquities. Learn about Champollion, who cracked the mysterious hieroglyphic code; Tutankhamen, the boy pharaoh who suddenly died at a young age for unknown reasons; and the curse of Tutankhamen’s tomb that befell those who discovered it.

This guided tour will also evoke memories of the royal castle: a misplaced golden helmet found at the bottom of a well; the unusual circumstances of King Henri IV dying in his carriage; and the mysterious murders surrounding the reign of Charles IX… This lively guided tour made for all ages to enjoy will give you a unique look at the Louvre and its masterpieces.
