Louvre Museum

We are planning to visit the Louvre Museum on November 16 (Friday) this year. Would you recommend buying a tour or can we do it ourselves. How about buying the skip the line tickets? Because it's low season, would there still be long lines? Would you recommend going on the tour in the morning or in the evening?

We were just at the Louvre last week on Monday. We arrived just after the museum opened. We had a museum pass, because we were going to multiple museums during our stay, but the lines were not long anyway and moved pretty quickly. We did not go on a tour but had done some research and had a game plan. We did head first for the most crowded areas, e.g. Mona Lisa, which my son-in-law had never seen, and the crowds were not bad. Later in the morning, it definitely got busier. I have heard that late in the day can work well, but early is good too. We went in through the main entrance, i.e. the pyramid. I'm guessing that November would be either the same or less than late May in terms of crowds.

I bet in November you would literally walk through security at the Carrousel entrance with virtually no line and find no lines to speak of in the ticket sales room where there are many manned windows as well as a dozen or so machines. We were able to do this in late May this year which is a much busier time than November.
