Breathtaking in many ways, I appreciate art but am not an art lover and so I was able to admire and move through a good percentage of the Louvre quickly. I wish I could have seen it all but perhaps I can check out more next time...it would certainly be too much for one day. I was in the Louvre... More

The Louvre is a destination not to be missed! Before you visit the museum,check out some information on its holdings and basic floorplan either online or in a guidebook. Plan to see the paintings you really want to view first if your time is limited. I loved seeing the Mona Lisa. It really is fantastic and worth seeking out to... More

Amazing large collection of art. Incredible architecture building, if you are an art lover make sure you planned 3 to 4 days to literally walk through the entire museum. Scenic view outside the museum for hangout and photography.

Spent 4 hours here & there was so much we didn't see! A definite must if you are in Paris! The museum gets very hot so do take advantage of their free cloakroom

The Louvre is worth visiting even if you don't wish to go inside. The glass pyramid is absolutely stunning, especially at dusk when it is lit up against the dark blue sky. I hadn't intended on visiting the Louvre during my holiday but it had late opening hours and I had some time to kill. The place is absolutely huge... More

My first visit to a museum and thoroughly enjoyed it. A lot too see so suggest focusing on areas of interest, could have easily spent all day wandering around but limited to 3 hours. Tip - avoid the upstairs coffee bar as overpriced.

Yes she is worth the entrance fee and really must be seen. The entire experience is wonderful with the most wonderful galleries packed with classics you may recongnis e and many more you probably won't. Don't even think of seeing it all in one day it is simply too vast. Plan what you want to see and how long you... More

Seeing the Apartments, Mona Lisa, and various other key/popular works of art in one spot is so amazing! I will definitely visit again if I'm able to go to Paris :D

Definitely check it out, the exterior buildings themselves are architecturally amazing, not to mention HUGE. I had no idea the art collection was so large. They aren't kidding when they say you would need months to see everything. My best recommendation is get the Best of The Louvre tour with the skip the line pass. PLEASE know that typically when...
