Louvre Museum, Paris

4.6
#1 of 2,924 in Museums in France
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.

  • Wow, this was my first time visiting the Louvre, and it definitely met and exceeded my expectations. Be forewarned though, this place is a popular tourist destination so it is always incredibly busy. ...  more »
  • The museum is huge and grand to explore. Do take an audio tour if you dont get french, as all paintings had only french description. Its a 4 km long multiple floor museum with great art and artists.  more »
  • Was decorated with the famous painting, building and around the Park, shrouded in mystery. Because in many decorated lovely paintings and sculptures come 3.4 hours ready please.

  • This museum is stunning inside and out! Amazing works of art and a must once in a lifetime experience. Highly recommend!! The line to go though security at the main entrance moved quickly as it took us less than ten minutes. I purchased the audio guide and it was great for mapping out the must sees and getting background information on highlighted artwork. I recommend the audio guide because you can always sit on a bench and listen to the commentary or walk around. The food inside is expensive but that is too be expected. Their gift shops are well stocked with lots of options. Purchased a Paris pop up book in English as a gift and it was definitely worth the price!
  • This place was one of the places that I thought would give touch of the history and goosebumps to the people .. there’s only fewer words in dictionary to describe this Breathtaking and beautiful - as a lover of art and history was definitely not disappointed with my visit. Managed to spend the whole day there without even noticing. So much to see, and experience. You truly cannot fully see and experience all in only one day. I loved the audio visual aids and guided tours. One of my many highlights was witnessing an artist paint a beautiful piece. My only disappointment was the closure announcement and having to leave. Will definitely return again and again.
  • I have always wanted to visit it...and I did, at last! In short, it is amazing! Multiple cultural and historical masterpieces are stored here. The museum building, interior decoration and stuffs are very nice and helpful. But It would have been nice if they start children entry restrictions in the rooms, containing naked sculptures and paintings. Otherwise everything is fine, one must pay a visit to it. Entry ticket price is 15€. They have discounts for disabled persons and below 18s...

  • Outstanding experience. You cannot help being blown away by the views, history and sheer scale. An absolute must see in Paris. Don’t drive by, walk around, explore and soak up the grandeur. Book your ticket in advance and cut the waiting time to access and get into the Louvre. Download the app and have a plan in advance. Follow the crowd to the main attractions but decide in advance what exactly most interests you and go there and you find far less people and crowd than the main attractions. Dress lightly as it gets hot and stuff in some areas, even if it is raining. Take water with you to drink too or you have to exit to get to the cafes and places to eat. Use the outside landmarks to help you navigate, such as keeping the pyramid on your left/right, or you may find you walk around in circles. Don’t forget to wander around the outside too and take in all the sights. There are audio tours available or just download the full audio on the app. You can exit via the shopping Centre directly into the gardens and head to the Carousel too.
