One of the best museums in the world. It is huge requiring more than a full day to visit it all. The best part is that this place is free for EU students!

Marvellous! My first visit, though I managed 3 in 4 days. With the exception of the incredible rudeness of the security staff and long lines to gain admittance, regardless of the pre-bought tickets. It is an incredible experience for all lovers of art. As a regular visitor to art galleries around the world could I through this medium ask all... More

It would take weeks to appreciate every piece in the gallery, we only had 2hrs and caught the highlight, so many lovely objects to be distracted by, will be back again and again.

Amazing building but very crowded and hard to manipulate. the maps are difficult to read and very limited signage in English. The staff for the most part is not multi lingual. Plan to spend more time looking for where the rest rooms and elevators are than looking at art work.

The Louvre was closed on Monday and we returned on Tuesday. It was very easy to get into the Louvre via the underground access from the square. We skipped the ticket line and paid by card on the left hand of the ticketing booths (Not sure why others did not do this, as it was very quick). The map is... More

I love the musee du Louvre, it's just so big! They have these fancy new Nintendo audio guides/maps, and I had a hard time getting it to correctly lead my "selected" tour. I was also bummed that the Vermeer and Dutch collection was closed on Thursday. However, it's never time wasted at the Louvre, and I especially loved the special... More

Managed to walk around here on such a beautiful day! Didn't get to go inside because I couldn't find an entrance but even just walking around the outside was enough for me this time. The building is beautiful and the iconic glass pyramid with the water is just perfect. Take your camera and your lunch and just go and take... More

Louvre is always in the To-Do of anyone visiting Paris for the first time. I had booked the ticket online, and took great care to figure out the place closet to my hotel on near Champ Elysée where I can pick up the tickets, else I would have been lost. Fortunately there was virtually no queue for tickets booked online.... More

I was extremely impressed by the collection displays (eg Egypt, Napoleon's rooms etc), however I was a little underwhelmed by some of the art. Yes the Mona Lisa was great to see, but much of the rest was just large rather than stunning. In terms of artwork I was more impressed by the Musée d'Orsay. Actually some of the architecture...
