Get advance tickets online to skip line. Then study and be realistic about what you can see. We spent 4 hours and barely scratched the surface. The audio guide is great and worth the money plus it has GPS to help guide you to exhibits you specifically want to see. Go to Mona Lisa first thing in the morning when... More

Travelled to Paris at the start of December with a friend and one of our must sees was the louvre. I think really my honest opinion of this place was nice and that it's VERY clean .... but if your someone who's backpacking and just wanting to see the Mona Lisa it's really quite average.... and all you need is...

The museum is one of the best in the world with an extraordinary collection of art objects from all around the world. Take the audio guide because the museum has invested in a very cool gadget that allows you to see 3D around the museum, to zoom in and out of objects of art and to receive text, audio and... More

When traveling to Paris there is a list of "must see" locations. The Louvre is undoubtedly on this list. The museum may be best known for housing Da Vinci's Mona Lisa, but the museum is so much more. My wife and I were there for probably close to 3 hours and I'm not sure I saw even close to everything.... More

I read how large this museum is, but nothing could really prepare for the sheer size and number of exhibits. If I was to do this over I would have planned a minimum of two days and focus on the key exhibits that were important to me. We reserved the audio guide and I would not recommend that - especially...

If you are just coming here for MonaLisa, then don't. The museum has so much more to offer. You need more than a day, if you wish to explore all the parts. The most awesome art collection i believe anywhere on the planet.

An absolute must see. Get there early and you will have more chance of seeing the major attractions without too many crowds. I had read it was big, but nothing prepared me for just how collossal the building is. We saw only a tiny fraction of it. More reason to go back!
