Since July 2019, access to the Louvre with the PARIS MUSEUM PASS can only be guaranteed by booking a time slot. Without this, admission can sometimes be a very lengthy or even impossible process during periods when there are a lot of visitors.

To book a time slot: log on to, select "Visitors with a Paris Museum Pass", choose the day and time of your visit, and indicate your name and your PMP number. You can then download a QR code that will get you through the first checkpoint at the entrance to the Pyramide du Louvre (the only way to get in). You will then need to show your PMP at the various checkpoints in the museum, located under the Pyramid.

NB: The booking procedure is free and visitors qualifying for free admission have no need to book.
