AFL is dedicated to advancing the Louvre’s mission through an active grant-making program. It raises awareness of the Louvre’s collections and museum expertise, and helps make the Museum’s exhibitions and permanent collections more accessible in the U.S. and around the world.


Important update

The Louvre has reopened

The museum reopened on May 19, 2021. To welcome visitors under the best possible conditions, all visitors, including those entitled to free admission, must book a time slot. Bookings are possible through the museum's online ticketing service:

As of August 10, the Louvre has informed us that all American citizens must present their CDC vaccination card or a COVID-19 negative PCR or antigen test result not older than 72 hours to visit the museum or any public place accommodating more than 1,000 people.

As the situation continues to evolve, please consult the Louvre and AFL's websites on a regular basis for any updates to these policies or contact the Louvre at or +33 (0)1 40 20 53 17 if you have any additional questions.
