Be prepared for some very long queues in summer months but we went in Feb so a lot shorter. The architecture of the building itself is beautiful with some of the greatest french inventors on it,s walls as statues.The building itself is huge so have comfortable shoes handy as a lot of walking.Well worth a visit.

The Louvre was simply beautiful. The history of the structure, the ornate design and the wealth of culture are compelling enough to make the case to visit. The opportunity to see that lovely lady, Mona Lisa, along with artistic pieces such as Winged Victory, Venus d' Milo and Colossal Ramses make it a necessity if you are indeed in Paris.... More

The grand Musee du Louvre is absolutely beautiful and, well, humongous. There is no way you could even do a "driveby" of the main spots during a daylong trip, so plan accordingly. It's amazing the amount of items on display in there, and there really is something to hold nearly anybody's interest. The most crowded place is, as you've probably... More

We queued two hours in the rain to get through security. One man doing a body check, another idly watching bags go through the security screening. Once through security there are so many ticket booths, both manned and automatic there are very few queues. The advice is buy the ticket online and the queue for ticket holders is 90% shorter....

Is there anyone who visit in Louvre without seeing the Mona Lisa? I don´t think so. Ok, I agree, that that lady is the worth of seeing. But still you have to remember that this museum is full of art. It is even so full, that you may should to spend there weeks if you wanted to see every single... More

I thought that I will hate Louvre because it is so big and crowded. But when you get inside most of the rooms are empty enough for you to enjoy. And it is very interesting museums. There are also different tour operators which can give you tour (and get you inside fast). And friendly tip. If you visit many places,... More

I don't get art. Sorry, but even the mighty Louvre couldn't change that! Queue aside (go early and it'll be short), the place was packed even in off peak season. The historical sections were interesting, if a little long and spread out, and the art area was so busy with everyone trying to see the Mona Lisa and grab a... More

Wow what a place! You don't want to miss a visit the the Louvre if you are in Paris. Entry was free for us as we were under 25 with a valid passport. Check the website before you go to see if you can get in for free.

We booked a fun treasure hunt/tour for the kids. It was just enough for them to get a feel for the museum and not to get overwhelmed. Would like to go back and spend more time there.

Loved every minute. Could have spent 3 days exploring the whole thing! we bought our tickets from the hotel so we didn't have to stand in line. Also they are closed on Tuesdays! so just know that and plan something else for that day.
