The Most Fun You Could Have at a Museum in Paris. Ever.

Paris

Next time you're in Paris and looking for something a little different to do, I have a fabulous idea for you!
Don a pair of your most comfortable shoes and join Daisy de Plume's Treasure Hunt at the Louvre (THATLou), or what I like to call, The Most Fun You Could Have at a Museum in Paris. Ever. (and if you can come up with an acronym for that, bravo!)

In the Louvre

THATLou is unlike any museum experience you've ever had.

Each Treasure Hunt has a different theme, so you could find yourself hunting for anything from a pair of 15th century Italian ewers to a 17th century Dutch painting to ancient Greek amporae.
And remember, the Louvre displays over 100,000 objects in a space that covers more than 60,000 square meters (approx. 650,000 square feet) - hence the need for comfortable shoes!

Once that clock starts ticking, the game is on, and believe me, those 90 minutes whizz by in a flash.

Next time you're in Paris, go and spend an evening at the Louvre with Daisy. You'll have a blast!

What more can I say?

You're an angel to write THATLou up, Jennifer, thank you! I'm so glad you had a good time and wish we could have had a longer picnic after -- 2 AM was too early!

I REALLY want to try this! When do they run? We'll be in Paris in January?!

I think that my husband and I saw a marauding band of children and parents on such a "hunt" when we were there in March. Sounds like much fun and how wonderful for children to be exposed to that magnificent architecture and exquisite art!

Bises,

Somehow I always just miss Daisy's THATLou outings :(
So frustrating though I can never find anything at all in the Louvre so i'm certain I'd flunk or win the booby prize, but I love the idea of it...

I'm totally trying that next time I'm there! I've been to Le Louvre a few times and didn't know this activity was an option. I'm pretty psyched now,I have to say!

You're welcome and I'm sorry you weren't able to join our team. Maybe next time?

Glad you enjoyed the photos. If you ever have the chance to join in on a Treasure Hunt, you definitely should!

Genie
Yes, Daisy did a hunt with kids not too long ago, but most of them are for adults. I met some wonderful people that night!

Val
Merci! It is a gorgeous place and I loved seeing it from a different angle.

We thought we had enough points to win but only came in 3rd out of 5 groups! :)
But it was much to fun to care. Hope you get the chance to join in one of these days.
