I was traveling with my twenty something daughter so we made a quick stop to see the "most famous" items. Huge museum with multiple galleries. Art lovers could spend days here. We spent an hour and saw the highlights.

Well, if you are interested in fine arts and history of art you should visit Louvre by all means! This is really huge collection masterpieces from all over the World. But you should be prepared as visiting this museum is long way trip! It needs at least 3 hours for quickie view.

Not sure why but didnt seem to be common knowledge either! The Orangerie is also closed on Tuesdays, missed two of the things I wanted to do whilst in Paris for this reason

Only had two hours so did not get the full feel of the museum. There is a lot of art to see here. You can spend weeks. If you have limited time go see the Mona Lisa

We went on a friday evening and didn't have to queue up for anything! All is free when you are under 26. I am not a big fan of 'old' art but wandering around and having a peek at Mona Lisa was nice.

I am not that big fan of Paintings. I had been there for my Sister, but being a Builder, I am more keen towards Structure and Architecture.. One should not miss this place.. No doubt, Mona Lisa is too good..!! :)

This doesn't disappoint. The artworks, the artists, the incredible age and breadth of the artifacts and statues, the effort that has gone into modernizing the exhibitions whilst still mostly making you feel like you are in a Grand old Chateau works extremely well. You simply have to visit and make sure you allow at least half a day., The big... More

it's impossible to see he whole mueseum in a day or two. but get a guided tour to see the important things around and ensure u have a comfortable footwear cos you will need to walk around for at least 3 hours to just see the important ones.

We were here in October and it was SO CROWDED! Don't try to get a picture of "Mona" - just see her and enjoy the moment. It is an awesome museum so get there super early or plan to stay late. Or both! It could take days to see all the high points.

but huge and way too many tours and people- of course you have to go while in Paris BUT if you arelooking for impressionism you will be sorely disappointed go to the Musee Orangeris (sp?) fo that- delightful there and a nice walk up from the Louvre towar the Champs Elysees
