Louvre Museum, Paris

Inspirock Rating:
4.5/5 based on 60,000+ 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.

  • Recommend going to the Museum on the day he stays open late. We chose the works that we wanted to see and yet we stay until the evening. Unforgettable.

  • Absolutely beautiful collection of art and history. The sculptures are amazing. They have a beautiful arrangement that lets you see the wonderful palace. The map can be a bit difficult to follow. The place is huge and can take a couple days to thoroughly explore but it is absolutely with it. A must see. I would put it at the top of my list of places to visit in Paris.
  • Amazing. I only wish we had more time. Definitely give yourself a full day (at least) here. They have a cafe on site for food and coffee breaks. Nice staff! Be prepared for the blob of people surrounding the Mona Lisa. You have to force your way to the front if you want a close pic. Otherwise, you just see a bunch of arms in the air with their cameras/phones.
  • We were lucky to pay the Louvre museum a visit on a somewhat quiet day. That being said, it's still worth pre ordering tickets online. There's an overwhelming amount of pieces in the museum and seeing everything in one day isn't possible. When compared to other museums (British museum) the artwork on display is decent. There's some well known artwork such has the Mona Lisa which is worth taking a quick look, but don't come here just for that or you'll be disappointed. I would have liked to see the medieval rooms, however they were under construction. Lastly, the bathrooms that were in order were worse than a public bathroom which is pretty bad for an entrance fee of €15.
  • Really? It's the Lourve,of course it's amazing, of course is crowded, and of course the building and collection are breathtaking. There's a reason this place is famous. Don't expect to be the only person that wants to see the Mona Lisa, everyone wants to see it. Purchase tickets ahead of time. You can't get this much works culture and heritage anywhere else, specially for €15
  • I think this place really speaks for itself. There is just so much to see here and will easily take up several hours of your day. We luckily went at a fairly quiet time so there wasn't too long to wait. Definitely would recommend visiting!
