Loved strolling around the gardens of the Louvre! It's amazing how big the museum is and how enjoyable it is to stroll around the grounds! We didn't go into the museum itself as we were pressed for time. Enjoy!

Le Louvre is amazing! I highly recommend this unique experience to anyone with a passion for art and history. I've been here twice on two separate trips and always wish I'd planned more time! Be advised that the museum is closed on Tuesdays--many Paris museums are closed on either Monday or Tuesday. Be prepared for A LOT of walking and... More

I was astonished to see the paintings and sculptures that I had only seen in my arts professor's powerpoint slides. The museum is big itself, and half day is not enough to immerse yourself fully in art indulgence, so I suggest you make room for almost a day for this. Best if you go here an hour earlier from its...

We thoroughly enjoyed the visit to this place. What we see in pictures, which is in itself pretty interesting, doesn't do justice to magnitude of this place and great experience it offers. It's must place to visit even if one is on short trip in Paris. Specially for ones who love art, history and architecture. One can completely be submerged... More

Such a very educational museum. A must visit and open the day. We loved every second of it and learned a lot about history. It was such a wonderful trip. Do not pass up visiting when in France. You will not be let down and you will for sure enjoy your time there.

The Paris Pass gained us quick entrance and we were in awe of the amazing artworks and history of the museum. Fortunately we were staying quite near and able to really enjoy walking through the grounds daily during our visit, and at different times of day.

This is an experience of a lifetime. The Louvre is one of the most impressive place in Paris. The decorative art department has just reopened, this is truly amazing.

Very nice museum, however it is a very large place. You and block out an entire day to spend here if you do not want to rush through.

Was very impressed with my visit. Large cues but that's expected in August. Beautiful park out the back you can feed the ducks. Was surprised how small the Mona Lisa is in real life.
