Create an itinerary including Louvre Museum
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.

  • I wasn't into Mona Lisa til I actually saw it. Don't get stuck in the basement trying to find your way out. Figure it out before you head down because it's crazy huge and easy to get lost.

  • Spectacular but so busy. A must see on any trip to Paris but it’s so crowded with tourists. Worth the visit

  • I would say it takes two days to visit the Louvre if you want to see it all ! But that's why it's great ;)

  • 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.p
  • Love the pyramids. Such a lovely place to sit out side. My boy loved hanging around here while we sat and had out lunch. Took lots of great photos. It was clean and tidy. You can down the pyramid and see the museum. Looks so amazing.
  • Best time to go now before school ends. Price is reasonable and free for kids. Prepare to spend hours in the largest museum of all time. Reservation may be recommended however we walked by pass the museum and saw that almost nobody was there and decided to try it. Waiting time was about 5 minutes even to see the Mona Lisa, awesome! Get there before worldwide reopening and enjoy!
  • The best art museum in the world. The Mona Lisa may be on your bucket list, but please do yourself a favor and see the rest of the museum. There are many paintings that are breathtaking that do not get the attention because of the "Photo Op" paintings. Contrary to what I read, I did not have to wait in a long line. The Louvre is very easy to get to by Metro and easy to navigate. I'm American and it was my first time in Paris. I can't wait to visit again.
  • With comfortable shoes, a good plan and a lot of time you will have a very nice time at the Louvre. Go for what interests you the most, because it is close to impossible to see everything during one visit. I would recommend checking out the crown jewels, on the same level as the Mona Lisa. Also, the quarter were Napoleon III. resided is a must, the rooms are stunning!
