Around the exhibition on Champollion at the Louvre-Lens, real and virtual animations

the Louvre-Lens has gotten into the good habit of developing a vast entertainment program around its temporary exhibitions. This is the case with Champollion.

The Louvre-Lens has designed visit support tools so that everyone can benefit from them. Its new mediation device is digital, innovative and intuitive.

Virtual tour of the Abu Simbel temple. What if you had the ability to teleport to Egypt? The Louvre-Lens equips you with a virtual reality helmet to visit the temple of Abu Simbel by torchlight, at the time when Jean-François Champollion discovered it. From 11 years old. Every day from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The aperitif of the pharaohs. The museum and the tourist office of Lens-Liévin invite you to share the aperitif of the pharaohs. After an exclusive and private tour of the exhibition outside of museum opening hours, enjoy an aperitif tasting commented by a specialist. From 18 years old. October 8 and January 7, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

The loulouvres: the heiress of Champollion. Play Zoraïde, the only daughter of Champollion. Delve into his father’s archives and get a behind-the-scenes look at his fascinating discoveries! Puzzle game to share on October 2 and 23, November 11, December 18 and 30, January 15. From 7 years old.

Hieroglyphic graffiti. The hieroglyphs remained a mystery for hundreds of years, before Champollion rediscovered their meaning. A bit like some graffiti… Come unravel the mystery of these coded writings and mark the glass walls of the museum with your colored hieroglyphs. From 15 years old. On October 30, continuously, from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Egyptian tattoos. Egyptomania is still as alive today as it was in Champollion’s day. Even tattoos are getting into the Egyptian fashion. Come and choose your ephemeral fetish tattoo to feel, for a few hours, the object of your hieroglyphic or divine dreams! From 12 years old. January 14.
