Full description

Explore the Louvre at your own pace with a timed-entrance ticket, ensuring you get in within 30 minutes. See unmissable and iconic artwork such as the Mona Lisa and Venus de Milo.

Discover Renaissance masterpieces and ancient Egyptian relics, along with paintings from the 13th to 20th centuries.

The museum first opened on August 10, 1793, exhibiting just 537 paintings. Despite closing in 1796 due to structural problems, it reopened in 1801 as the Musée Napoléon with a larger collection. 

The collection has since gained 20,000 works. Now, there are 8 departments: Egyptian Antiquities; Near Eastern Antiquities; Greek, Etruscan, and Roman Antiquities; Islamic Art; Sculpture; Decorative Arts; Paintings; and Prints and Drawings.

It's definitely a must-do, it was quite busy but the line was short (I went off season). However, if you don't plan to be there for 3-4 hours and have activities planned after, choose which exhibits you want to see before and because it is insanely easy to get lost. The cafeteria food was edible. If you're also not a big fan of school aged children I would recommend going way earlier in the day because there were many field trips and just groups of kids making their way around as well.

Booking in advancd with timed entry, very efficient. Only needed to book my ticket as my children 15 and 13 were free of charge. We had a wheelie bag (which could be taken as in-flight luggage) and 2 small backpacks. Luggage room under the pyramid has a great space and plenty of different sized lockers to accommodate. Simply need to enter a pin to store your bags securely. You need to show your ticket upon entry and have bags scanned similar to baggage scan before boarding a flight. Relatively easy to navigate your way around by following the map, provided in several languages. Quite well sign posted. A lot to see, some exhibitions were closed. Great experience overall. Please note: book early, I looked on the Wednesday and only afternoons were available for the Friday and Saturday. We went on the Saturday. Happy to see a Starbucks for a coffee as not many cafes offer soy milk

Loved our self-guided tour. Would highly recommend an early start to beat the mid-day crowd. Security/ticket check line was almost non-existent for our 10 am time on a Saturday which was a happy surprise. Most of the museum was quiet & not crowded, until we reached the Mona Lisa. If seeing this up close matters to you I'd go there first as this was the busiest section in our experience.
