The museum is very very big. Not enought time to really take it all in. What I was able to see was very impressive. Could use more detailed maps. Perhpas pointing out the popular exhibits. Safety is another issue. Two of the young ladies on our tour were pickpocketed. I know we should all be mindful of our own belongings, but when you are awed by all of the beautiful art work and lift your arms to take a picture, you should feel safe. So my advice to anyone going to visit the Louvre...be very, very careful and enjoy!!

Way too big to get through in a day but we saw the highlights and one day hope to return to do more!

The Louvre is huge so spend ample time here if you are really into arts and history. Otherwise, just look at the highlights which you can see in the museum guide/map especially the very popular Mona Lisa. Or, get an audio guide or a book just so you don't get overwhelmed by what you see in front of you and wondering what it is all about. Amusing to see tourists enjoying themselves outside near the pyramid with some wading their feet in the waters of the fountain. A lot of photo opportunities too. This is another must see and popular attraction in Paris so expect long queues during summer unless you buy tickets online or use the Paris pass.

I've been many times and always find something new and event the most famous works still amaze me.

We, by chance, went on Bastille Day which is free and is just fantastic. There aren't many other museiums with a collection like it.

Huge amounts works of art of looted - bought together. Of course, if you do not already have some of destroyed. Waiting in the safety analysis. Many days feature gets to wander around and have not seen it all! Only leaders should listen to the first few times! Each exhibit should bring at least a day. We are accompanied by an art historian and a wonderful two days we spent. Of course we did not see everything. Why Will go back!
