Has the longest queue I've ever seen. If you want to see inside, arrange your tickets before. Or spend your half-a-day on the queue. The inside musuem is impressive. There is a museum shop next to the pyramide and its too expensive.

The Louvre is amazing. So many beautiful things there. I did not get to spend as much time there as I planned, having to miss the Sully wing. I found that knowing what I wanted to see and where it was was very helpful when I unexpectedly had less time than I planned. Statues in the Richilieu wing are beautiful... More

This place is a must when in Paris. Go very early in the morning and even better to avoid the queues at the pyramid entrance use the one underground. The museum is massive and plan your visit well.

Loved the louvre, so peaceful to walk around, The hecticness is definitely inside. i recommend a fast pass or skip the line if you don't want to spend hours que-ing outside, It is very large so if your tight on time i suggest looking for the pieces you want to see the most, r take the full day to enjoy.

I am not a big museum person but found there was lots of variety and different exhibits to keen even me interested! It was crowded in parts but definitely worth a visit - we only spent a couple of hours but there was so much more to see, you could spend days exploring all of the works.

I think it is must for everyone visiting Paris. Even if you dont like museums go here to see only the 3 dams: Mona Lisa, Winged Victory of Samothrace and Venus de Milo. We didnt bye a tickets in internet so wait about 45 minutes to enter. Check if they have an audio gide in your language(no Russian). We bring... More

Everyone knows about the Louvre and, especially, the Mona Lisa which I think is the primary goal of most visitors. It's a beautiful building complex with TONS of beautiful art but I think the most surprising thing for me about my visit were the Napoleon Apartments. Those rooms were simply stunning and, personally, I found them to be far more... More

We went to the Louvre this week at the height of tourist season. Of course it was packed. We had to stand in a half-hour line outside the pyramid to get in. As the largest museum in the world, it obviously is filled with countless amazing pieces of artwork. You cannot see the whole museum in one day. It is... More

I enjoyed the Grande Louvre, particularly, the Mona Lisa and many of the other works. It would be better if the Musee staff only allowed a few groups at a time to review this masterpiece so that everyone could get close.

Nothing to say! Just Go and try to see everything in one day! You won´t be able. but try to reach Monalisa.Its area from ancient history is perfect. never forget to enter through the Old Louvre entrance, it is the best.
