Nintendo and the Louvre museum in France have teamed up to provide visitors to the world famous museum access to a 3DS portable console for guided self-tours of the exhibits at the museum. Nintendo will provide 5,000 of the 3DS consoles and create the content for the tours. Previously the museum used audio devices for tours.

There will be different tour itineraries, including one for kids. The tours will tell the user about the things they are seeing and presumably provide 3D photos and video. The 3DS will allow the user to locate themselves in the museum and see what they want.

The museum will also offer new iPhone and iPad apps in the next month for those that want to use their own device. There will be multiple languages supported with the 3DS tours. The Louvre is the first museum to use the 3DS for tours.
