Paris’ Louvre to Replace Audio Guides with Nintendo 3DS

This blog post was updated on October 18, 2018.

The Louvre Museum in Paris will soon be replacing its audio guides with the popular Nintendo 3DS hand-held game system.


Nintendo will provide the museum with up to 5,000 devices, according to a report from the AFP.


The modified devices will allow visitors to track their progress throughout the museum, choose from a few different themed itineraries, and listen to tours in several different languages.


The partnership with Nintendo is just one campaign to modernize the institution. The 200-year-old museum recently updated its website (one of the most visited in the world), and will launch revamped applications for iPads and smartphones early in 2012.
