Do yourself a favor and buy the museum pass!!!! You can skip the purchase lines and get in much much faster. Head to the high lights first (Mona Lisa, Venus de Milo, ect) then spend your time just browsing. You have to go here if you go to Paris, but ARRIVE EARLY and BUY THE MUSEUM PASS IN ADVANCE!!!

We were staying in a hotel near the Louvre so we were there for the 9am opening time only to find that there was already a mega queue formed of about 700 people. It is in 2 parts: an outer queue to get to the inner queue which is the roped off section that zig-zags back and forth in a... More

Amazing experience. Would definitely need 2 days to do the full thing. Luckily it is off season and the museum was free on Sunday, so when we went on Saturday it wasn't crazy busy. But my goodness, SO many stairs. Too many stairs. You have to go up and down levels to stay on the same floor. Just a little... More

The Louvre is a fabulous place to visit! ... but be advised that you need to put by a large amount of time! ... The place is HUGE!! .... I would advise planning your visit before you arrive - there is something there for everyone! :)

This museum is an absolute "must see" when you are in Paris. There is so much to see that you need to plan your day well and understand that you will not be able to see everything in one trip. I am still discovering new exhibits after 20 trips over 12 years.

My wife and I loved walking round the Louvre. I was amazed how big it was and how long it kept us occupied. We spent nearly four hours there and probably saw just over half of it. You could definitely spend a full day there if you wanted to. Ambling around admiring the works of art in such a beautiful... More

Beautiful building and surrounds. The line appeared long however was fast moving even on the first Sunday of the month (which is free). There is a secret entrance by the shopping centre however I didn't realise until later. Well worth it. I'm not a museum lover but it was beautiful and the building itself both inside and put is breathtaking... More
