I visited this place in February 2016. It was free for students so bring your student card. The museum is absolutely enormous and magnificent. It will take you many days if you want to see all the creations.

While this museum was good, I did find it overrated. I wasn't a fan of much of the art, and found it boring 'cause so much of it was renaissance. The building used to be a palace, so some of the rooms are spectacular, something which I found more interesting than a lot of the actual art. Obviously, if you... More

What can you say - incredible art. Be prepared for crowds. We got there early in hopes to beat crowds and went to see the Mona Lisa first as that is the biggest draw - still had tons of people already there. Room after room, floor after floor, wing after wing - full of art, sculptures, antiquities.

We moved to Paris so that we could come back time and time again to the Louvre. After seeing the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo take the time to go to the other corridors of the Louvre. Every six months or so they change the special exhibit. It is almost always the best thing to see. Take your time... More

If you want a workout, forget the gym and head to the Louvre instead. You'll see breathtaking paintings, sculptures, and architecture, and you'll work off that desert you ate at Angelina's. Prepare yourself for crowds at every priceless piece (like the Mona Lisa) and then prepare yourself that will not get up close to those pieces because of security. But... More

When we arrived at this amazing place, it was just before sunset. It was an incredible sight and we got some amazing photos!! Unfortunately the museum itself was due to close shortly after we arrived, so we decided not to go in as we wouldn't have had enough time to see it all. Definitely don't go to Paris without. I...

Whatever people tell you or how they described the Louvre, it can never replace the first time you see this magnificent place from afar. I practically had goosebumps walking in and seeing the famous Pyramide du Louvre. I was travelling with my family including my 2+ year old daughter. We had a stroller with us so as a tip to... More

We spent a full day at the Louvre and there was plenty to see although it may have been better to start with a professionally guided tour. The map you are given is almost impossible to understand and of all of the staff we asked for help most were rude or evasive as if they get asked the same direction... More

We were staying at Disneyland Paris and caught the train into Paris for the day to show our daughter (7yrs) some of the key sights. We pre-purchased entry tickets before we left New Zealand so we did not have to queue for tickets. We did not have a lot of time here unfortunately but we wandered around and saw the... More
