Activities for all
To help make the cultural experience accessible to everyone, all visitors can use a range of solutions to enhance their experience.
Keen to make visits rewarding and encourage a dialogue with its visitors, the Fondation decided after opening to recruit a team of professional, multilingual guides to work in the exhibition spaces. They are trained in passing on their cultural knowledge to the public, and are on hand throughout the Fondation's opening hours.
Their language skills allow them to answer questions in the most common European languages, but also in less familiar languages, including Japanese, Russian, Greek and Chinese.
Short tours are free guided tours available to all visitors, with no pre-booking required.
Lasting 15 minutes, they begin every half hour on several levels of the building to help visitors find out more about the three aspects of the Art/Afrique, le nouvel atelier exhibition, and the amazing architecture of the Fondation Louis Vuitton.
At the “short tour” meeting point, you will be met by a mediator who will ask you to follow him or her. You can enjoy just one guided short tour or take part in several different ones to gain a more complete overview of the project.
Short tours are given every day
Every 30 minutes from 12.30 A.M to 6 P.M, extended to 7 P.M at weekends and 8 P.M on Friday evenings.
Duration: 15 minutes
Free of charge
The "Fondation Louis Vuitton" app enables you to access services and information in real time, to guide and enhance your visit as you explore.
It contains a calendar and detailed listings featuring current exhibitions and art events, along with an architectural tour and exclusive content on works of art: artists' commentaries, making-of montages, etc.
The "Architectural Tour" comprises a series of audio commentaries and videos specially designed to help you explore the building. The mysteries of a great architectural feat will become clear as you explore its galleries, pool and terraces.
The "Discover the works" section includes a selection of images and interviews updated to accompany the Fondation's cultural programme. Plenty of space is given over to insight from artists invited to the Fondation to present their work and their inspirations.
You can use the sharing and bookmarking features to share your favourite content.
Since December 2014, the Fondation has organised special, unconventional events in the museum spaces or in the Auditorium which aim to change the way visitors see the building and the works on display, and immerse them in a collaborative artistic experience.
These events include the Family activities, which began in December 2014. They enriched the visiting experience for Nuit des Musées (Museum Night) in 2015, and the European Heritage Days in 2015. They shake up the visiting experience after-hours on Friday evenings.
Free events for all.
