Louvre Museum, Paris

4.6
#1 of 3,126 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.

  • Just one of the most famous museums in the world, what can you say about this place except it's a must-see when you visit Paris. It is smack in the middle of the city and the tourist areas, and well....  more »
  • There are A LOT of impressive and beautiful works of art in the Louvre, not just the Mona Lisa. Unfortunately, when we visited in late June 2021, the entire Sully wing was closed. Very...  more »
  • The headphone's are a waste of money. Just wonder around and take in all the beauty around you. Make sure that you go early because it will take many hours to really get through it all.  more »

  • Absolutely in love with this place. It is huge so I would recommend spending a day or two if you really wanna go through everything. wasn’t too crowded overall except around the Mona Lisa where it was a stampede. There is something for everyone here, it ranges in different time periods and art forms. It surpasses anything we have in Canada in terms of an art museum.They have cute gift shops all around which is convenient. I came from Canada to visit and got the membership which I would recommend considering it was almost the same price as single admission and the line was shorter.

  • I would gladly visit the Louvre Museum again and again. Its a magnificent edifice. A place filled with art and history. A place that tells a wonderful story and invokes a different perspective about art and history. I was mesmerized and awed by all the beautiful collections and paintings from all over Europe and the world at large. Simply awesome!
  • Only downside is that it is too big! Easy to get lost in there. You can use days in there. Had I know it was that big I would have used four days instead of one. One day per floor would cover it nicely. Amazing experience at a very low price. Would love to come visit again.
  • The most worth visiting place in Paris. You can spend a whole day in this huge museum. The place is well organized. Sculptures and paintings are well preserved. I love how I can closely admire those are pieces. It's a good idea to buy museum pass if you going to spend 2-7 days visiting museums around Paris.
