Louvre Museum Vermeer Exhibition

Hello,

We would like to see the Vermeer exhibition in Paris.

Unfortunately, it is impossible to book a time slot , there are none. You have to show up and cannot book in advance ??

Thank you in advance for your help,

On the website for the Louvre, there are no time slots available until 24th May. I just asked a similar question earlier, actually. I'm hoping that I can book my time slot at the ticket office beneath I.M. Pei's pyramid as the website suggests as a possibility. Seems like a poorly organised system.

Thank you very much for your replies.

fnac.com will sell you a ticket for the main Louvre but you have to show up early for the Vermeer exhibition as if you had no tickets...

Adam, I agree, very poorly organized system..

Wait - are you saying you DO have to show up to book?

Important information:

Advance reservations for a specific time slot are required for all visitors to the Vermeer and Valentin de Boulogne exhibitions. Make your reservation at the ticket office under the Pyramid on the day of your visit.

I have a friend who just booked tickets for the Vermeer for Wednesday morning next week. This is so odd because normally the special shows are included with entry ticket at the Louvre. I agree that it seems disorganised; maybe they will fix this situation.

Have a read at jdbri's post -Joie Paix...- to see the delicate process of gaining timed entry.

How did your friend book tickets separately for Vermeer? It says on the Louvre website it's included with your ticket but you need to reserve a time when you get there.

Sorry, but i don't know how he did this. I am hoping to go to the Louvre some time in the next few days and will see what is involved.

So it's only booked at the ticket office then? Not online at all?
