I have never seen such a huge collection of art paintings, sculptures and everything pertaining to art! Must see for all art fanatics! Line is a little long and the place can get quite packed at times but it's all worth it. Plus you can walk outside and hang out in the park which is also really beautiful. DO NOT... More

This is a place I would return to alone, with friends or family. The trick is to use the ticket machines (although they didn't accept American Express or foreign cards at that time) to avoid the lines. One of the secret entrances was closed on that day but luckily, I was able to use my French credit card to buy... More

Great for pictures be careful around the people trying to sell you things. Very dodgy men. The galleries are beautiful and there's a mass everyday at church.

What a spectacular day spent at the louvre; completely surpassed all expectations. We spent the day exploring but probably only saw 30% of the museum. I recommend the Napoleon & Louis XIV apartments; magnificent, words do not really do the louvre justice. It's an essential on any paris to-do list. World class museum, plenty to see & do.

This is a must for Paris. We are in our early 20s and are from Europe so we got in free, just paid for audio guides. We went through all ancient Egyptian rooms which were very interesting but took hours and after that we rushed our way through some paintings to get to the Mona Lisa as we'd pretty much... More

Spent an afternoon here but could easily spend the whole day roaming the halls of this museum. The works of art are breathtaking and the views are stunning. Mona Lisa is a tad disappointing as it's so small and crowded. However you cannot go to Paris and not see her.

I love everything about the Louvre and have spent 2 days on one vacation and 1 day on my last trip exploring the Louvre. One afternoon we just sat in the gardens in the late afternoon just taking in the sights. Before you even entering you know this is a very special place. The architecture is amazing and I never...

For sure, you cannot see everything. It's good to plan in advance and set priorities what to see. There is a little queue in front of Mona Lisa painting since everybody wants to see it.

This is the world´s second largest museum after China. You certainly cannot complete with the same energy you entered. The museum is set up in the palace known as Louvre and hence the name resembles. This is a must see place for the art lovers as it offers a panorama of western art from middle ages to 1848, works from... More
