Great Museum. Long line to get in even if you have VIP access. You still have to clear security. The weather has been extremely hot, so make sure your hydrated.

Must see attraction in Paris. The Louvre is a world class institution that every visitor to Paris must experience.

so there is no way to see the whole museum. we went for the highlights (mona lisa) but it is pretty easy to navigate. the disappointing part was the shopping (all high end stores you would find anywhere)

One of the best museum my husband and I have been. So much history behind it, so much painting to look at and admire and so much to cover in one day!

I have seen many beautiful museums and the Louvre does absolutely stack up. Unquestionably it delivers an impact on the quantity of art, however, the quality goes to other worldly museums. Expect to spend a minimum if 4 hours. Pushy people around the Mona Lisa, which I am surprised they don't do a better job of containing... as they do... More

You might read much stories about the queue and the crowd yet next to famous these glass pyramids are several fountains where you might take a break and put your feet in the refreshing water.

Coming to Louvre is a must go for any traveler in Paris. My visit was unforgettable. The collection is just massive, with a bit of everything: Greek sculptures, Roman tile art, Renaissance paintings and Egyptian tumbs. Of course the highlight was Mona Lisa, where the crowds were converging. To get a good view of the painting you'll be squeezed for... More

If ever you want to see the world in a museum and art...this is THE place!! They say if you took 20 minutes per painting it would take 9 months to see everything and it would be true. The works of art houses here are amazing. From enchanting Venus to the captivating Mona Lisa. The sculptures will take your breath... More

You cannot come to Paris and not see with your own eyes one of the most famous paintings in history! Recommend getting here at opening time or come later on one of the late days since the Mona Lisa is everyone's goal. It's a madhouse so be patient, especially with people shoving selfie sticks in your face and pushing you... More
