This is where art was stored during the Nazi occupation. Now lots of art from all periods is on display. When our children were young and overloaded with museums, we waited until just before closing to rush to the back to see Mona Lisa. Expect huge crowds.

It is amazing and too big, A guide would select the best arts and explain everything about them. Choose a visit schedule that allows you to stay in the museum after the guide tour

I was happy to have the Paris Pass and avoid any lines! I'm not typically a museum person but there was space to take my time and explore. Very enjoyable day

Boy is this place big! It is best to book tickets on-line before going as the queue can get very long. Fantastic collection of treasures from around the world but it so large a collection that one has to restrict ones viewing a bit and just concentrate on one or two rooms in order to get the most from the...

What a beautiful place. Best to buy your tickets in advance. We did and the checking in went really quick. You really need a full day to enjoy The Louvre.

We were enjoying more outside of the museum. Although I am not enthusiastic in art, I must say that it is beautiful museum. It was overcrowded, so you have to prepare for that. I didnt like, that all exhibits descriptions were in French and not in other languages. You can take card with the description (english, german), but then it... More

A must see in Paris if you wish to see all of the top tourist attractions. We went with the intention of seeing the building, the architecture and surrounding area as well as the Mona Lisa of course and we were not disappointed. The only drawback was that we were not that interested in or knew a lot about the... More

I couldn't find anything to eat near the Louvre, but after a quick lunch, I returned to the Louvre. I have to admit I am not into Arts nor historical artifacts, I did went to see the Roman/Greek venues, but that's it. We got bored after 2 hours. I tried to find something interesting to look at (some of the... More
