Louvre Museum, Paris
(4.5/5 based on 65,000+ reviews on the web)
With an impressive collection of 30,000 pieces, it's nearly impossible to see all of Louvre Museum. The three "Great Ladies,” Venus de Milo, Winged Victory of Samothrace, and Mona Lisa, may be the museum’s most well-known attractions. The Michelangelo gallery is just one of 30-plus galleries, each with a theme, such as bronze. Masterpieces aren't the only pieces that stand out. Religious artifacts include a fragment of the Egyptian Book of the Dead on papyrus. Even more impressive is the Code of Hammurabi from the Mesopotamian civilization. English-language tours are available on several days, but you need advance registration. Join a city museum tour or order tickets in advance so you won't wait in a long line to gain entry. Take a look at our Paris itinerary maker to schedule your visit to Louvre Museum and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Went to see Moana Lisa and it was alright. The place seems to have far to much art in certain rooms to actually appreciate the most important pieces. Best thing was under 26 year olds get in free, jus...  more »
  • I went to the Louvre because it was Monday and it rained... There is much to make the Paris. I'm not a fan of the painting. I like sculpture, but marvel architecture, and the Louvre is wonderful: I was 5 hours along beautiful lounges, with ceilings of dream. It is worth visiting it, even for 3 hours.

  • Excellent museum!! It's beautiful and has a good mix of new and ancient... I got to see the Mona Lisa and tons of other paintings, which was super exciting! There's so much to see, you might need 2 or 3 days to do it... It's in a beautiful part of Paris... You're allowed to take pics here (some museums don't allow it)... I definitely want to go back...
  • I loved seeing the things I've only read about in books come alive. Sculptures, paintings, artifacts are all well displayed. Apart from this, the palace itself is a wonder. With ornate ceilings and walls, you can also spend a lot of time looking up. The place is huge. Wear comfortable shoes.
  • So this was a dream come true for me to see Paris and spend several hours in this iconic wonderful gallery and museum. Literally incredible. The food inside (Paul's patisserie) was great value for money. The only thing I would do differently is to purchase the entrance tickets in advance thus avoiding the hefty cue to get in. Can't wait to go back.
  • It's hard to enjoy this museum not so much because of tourists like ourselves, we expected this, but because of poor signage. We found it completely difficult to navigate through the different exhibits. We had a map and an app but still no luck. In 2 hours we probably saw half of the top 10 pieces we wanted to view but on a good note we discovered great pieces along the way.
  • It has a huge connection of art. The paintings are mainly related to Christianity, but are amazing. The museum is just huge. If you minutely want to see everything, even a day may not be sufficient. If you want to save money, try to visit our on the first Sunday of a month when most of the museums in Paris offer free entry.
