We got in for free on the first Sunday of the month and the line moved quickly! The museum itself is huge and has a mind-boggling amount of pieces. If you don't focus too much on every single piece you can get through a decent amount of the museum in a full day, but I found that I was limited... More

This place is a MUST! I could have spent a week viewing all the artwork. It's amazing to actually see in person the famous works of art that the Louvre houses. We only spent one day in the Louvre, which is just plainly too brief a time to fully experience all the treasures it holds. We went during the week... More

Very Big Museum With Marvelous Artefact. The biggest artefact for me is monalisa painting, venus statue, and Napoleon heritage. Better eat first outside the museum because food and drink price is so expensive

How can I describe a visit that lists "among" the highlights the Mona Lisa?!?! The grounds, Pyramids, countless treasures and very kind - but firm - staff made this an awesome visit. I heard more than once that it would take over 100 days - 24 hours a day - to spend even 30 seconds on each piece. HINT: Definitely... More

The art work is fabulous, covering a huge range of styles, cultures, and periods. The museum is huge! Wear comfortable shoes and be prepared for a lot of walking. Tickets are available in advance online, and I highly recommend that. Handicapped people and one carer are admitted free, with little to no waiting. Go to the staff in the middle... More

This is an attraction not to be missed when visting Paris. The museum itself is a former palace which standing empty would be inspiring. However, the Louvre is an art lovers paradise. I recommend visiting on Wednesday in the afternoon when the musseum is open late. Pick up a headset at the museum or download the free Rick Steve's tour... More

The Louvre is set within the palace grounds which are beautiful but the glass building is a little bit of a modern eyesore against it's backdrop. We purchased FASSPASS tickets prior to our travel via Viator which we collected from the local tourist office on the day. The queues for ticket purchases on the day at the Louvre were very... More

We went here as we figured a trip to Paris wasn't complete without a visit... but probably we shouldn't have bothered. They seem to be struggling with the heightened level of security, which you queue for ages to get through, then you get inside and queue to buy a ticket, and then you queue to get your ticket checked and...

The queue outside was understandably long, but the inside never felt as though it was overcrowded as there is so much to see. My girlfriend and I didn't have to pay a penny for entrance, as we're under 26 and EU citizens, which is lovely! There is SO much to see, and you could spend a whole day walking around... More
