Before going there, decide what to see !!

It is a huge museum with fantastic works of art. Only issue is make a plan before going there because it is impossible to see everything inside in a one day.

Excellent museum. A must. I managed to convince my teen to visit once again and he enjoyed it. Of course, everything is beautiful and awe inspiring. You can go again, and again, and again... Just don't attempt to see everything in one visit, especially with family. Maybe I took my older teen too many times to museums or maybe it's... More

We like the way the different art styles were grouped together. At first we went to the Vermeer exhibition, then to Caravaggio. The coat room is for free! We saw the Mona Lisa, the Greek Nike of Samothrake statue (also called Winged Victory) and many paintings. Wish they had more benches where people can sit down. Other than that it's... More

Obviously this is a must, but unless your an art aficionado, go see a few pieces that you are interested in and head out. It was hard to hear or focus on the tour guide with so. many people around us and a lack of seating. THIS PLACE IS PALACIAL.

We bought tickets before we got there so we didn't have to stand in line outside. That gave us more time to see a bit more, but you could spend days there and still not see it all. Do get an audio guide, but ours died before our feet did. So great to see artwork in person that you previously... More

Loved this tour. We bought skip the line tickets so well worth it as there are long cues most days. On the first Sunday of the month a lot of museums open their doors for the people for free. Mona is on the top floor. Walking up the marble stairs looking at the wear on them and am amazed at... More

Very difficult venue to acclimate yourself to the first time. We saw so many great works of art comma but we weren't not a fish it in the use of our time period it is best to go back to the centre meeting area and then start viewing another building display period

This world-renowned museum houses an astounding collection in the bewildering maze of a former palace. Fabulous art, huge crowds - they really should tie a rope to your belt when you enter, so you can find your way back out. I strongly recommend purchasing the Paris Pass - it was sooo worth it.
