Really enjoyed my visit, perhaps not as much as musee d'orsay though due to the confusing layout and lack of information on the map. I purchased an audio guide which was ok, handy for keeping a track of your location in the museum and some useful information for some exhibits. The map doesn't provide enough detail, it's vague in its... More

Why else would Dan Brown write about it, or the Mona Lisa be exhibited in it. The Louvre is simply the most elegant, amazing, and stunning collection of art in such a fabulously French setting that you cannot miss the opportunity to check it all out. Besides, there is a mall attached if you can't handle the art!

How to say what's not been said!? This is no museum, it's a vault of history. Some pieces are measured in inches, some in yards/meters, but works here can be measured in inspiration and impact! I'm not the greatest of art lovers, but when I came face to face with Da Vinci's Mona Lisa, I couldn't look away. I could... More

While staying Paris, we wanted to take our friends to the Louvre which should be a must on everyone's list. Unfortunately, we hit the Louvre at the start of a 2 week school holiday in Paris and between the tourists and kids, this place was mobbed. We should our friends the highlights of the Louvre, had lunch and ended our... More

To avoid queuing for hours, you should perchase Paris Museum Pass. It will help you access into the Museum and any other places a little bit faster. Louve has everything from pieces of great art work to statue or mummies of Egypt. Study the map carefully because this place is enormous!!!

The Louvre is a huge place which caters to both the French and foreigners, so it might help if even a few of the signs were in English! In order to work the audioguide you needed a degree in advanced electronics. All of the signs were in French so it was difficult to know what we were looking at, and... More

Lines to enter weren't too bad on a weekday in October, try using the carousel entrance on the subway side. Must see the museum, the building itself is simply incredible, not to mention the artwork and items housed inside. It is worth the wait to enter!

This is Paris' grand old lady just as the British museum is to London or the Metropolitan is to New York. It is a must and of course thatvisbwhere the Mona Lisa hangs... Allows a few hours, there is much to see and admire. When it is raining it is a wonderful place in which to retreat to and enjoy.

Its amazing how a beautiful palace is converted to a exceptionally well maintained and managed museum. It is very huge and true art lovers will need days to complete seeing the entire museum. We took almost 5 hrs to see the entire place in rush. Worth visiting for the beauty of it. There are specific days like Fridays when it... More
