If you like museums than this is one of the best. Without even starting on the priceless artefacts inside, the building is unbelievable. It's huge! Be prepared to walk a very long way if visiting here and dedicate at least 3-4 hours+. It's easy to get lost and you may find yourself walking around in circles! There are collections of... More

I am not a museum person, but the Louvre really is a must do. You could spend a couple days exploring, there is just so much to see. I was unable to spend the time this museum deserves. I would highly recommend spending at least a day exploring!!

There are 35k artefacts in the louvre so plan carefully. Get a guide unless you plan to wander aimlessly lots and not sure what you are looking at. The obvious pieces like the Mona Lisa are a must but be prepared to be squeezed. Apparently it is normal in Chinese culture just to push people out of the way as... More

There is so much art work in the Louvre that you may not see it all if you're on a schedule. Set time aside to visit at your own pace. There are lots of people milling about and it's a little difficult to take a photo without someone passing through it or standing in front of the art. The ornate... More

If you have a day to spare and like museums then this is a must do whilst in Paris. Seriously, museums don't float my boat, but this place blew me away on so many different fronts. The size of the buildings are enormous and of fantastic architecture. Stunning!!! The pyramid adds modernism to the surroundings. This is just the outside.... More

From Mona Lisa to Venus de Milo and Winged Victory - an amazing museum. We were there for about 3 hours so only saw some of the highlights - much more to see than we got in on this one afternoon, but well worth it.

I went there on a Saturday at around 13:00. There were no lines, and it wasn't crowded at all. The building itself is worth the visit - a masterpiece where modern meets ancient to form a tasteful combination. There's a bunch of interesting things to see apart from the Mona Lisa, and the audioguides are excellent. I just wish I... More

Bertrand of My Private Paris took us and our grandson on a highlights tour as part of our time with him. He engaged and challenged us as we viewed the art. For example, at the Winged Victory, he asked us to choose which of the wings was original and which was a plaster copy. After many times in Paris, we... More
