Create an itinerary including Louvre Museum
With an impressive collection of 30,000 pieces, it's nearly impossible to see all of Louvre Museum. The three "Great Ladies,” Venus de Milo, Winged Victory of Samothrace, and Mona Lisa, may be the museum’s most well-known attractions. The Michelangelo gallery is just one of 30-plus galleries, each with a theme, such as bronze. Masterpieces aren't the only pieces that stand out. Religious artifacts include a fragment of the Egyptian Book of the Dead on papyrus. Even more impressive is the Code of Hammurabi from the Mesopotamian civilization. English-language tours are available on several days, but you need advance registration. Join a city museum tour or order tickets in advance so you won't wait in a long line to gain entry. Put Louvre Museum into our Paris online tour itinerary builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Paris.

  • The structure and its contents are beautiful. Tickets are affordable. We went in autumn so it was not so busy. It's an experience so rich, literally and figuratively. Works of art that are hundreds...

  • It was a great visit! We had a lot of fun during the 3 hours we spent on our visit to the museum and we saw a lot of great sculptures and paintings. Definitely recommended to buy the tickets in advance so you have to wait less time at the entrance queue and bring some food of your own so when you finish your visit you can have something to eat (if you don’t want to spend any money in the cafeteria).
  • It is a really really nice museum in Paris and in the world. I went there to see Mona Lisa paint and Venus. You need to wait and line to buy ticket . It would be better if you could buy tickets through online. The museum is super wide and bigger. You will need enough time to see the beauties of the museum. I think a week is worth spending time there. The arts, paints, and creations are unique and amazing. So many people are always crowded in front of the Mona Lisa paint. The paint is covered by a glass not to touch it easily. It was painted on the wood and the size is small. The paint opposite side to it is also so nice and bigger.I would like to recommend you to see each paint and enjoy them. You can take a flyer or map of the museum at the information department. Or you can ask the securities at every corner of the museum if you want to see something special and if you could not find the way to them.
